Taxon:

Pig

Gene:

SLC38A4

Chromosome:

05

Location:

80 Mb (primary assembly 10.2)

Description:

SLC38A4 has been reported to be imprinted and paternally expressed in mice and not imprinted in cattle. Bischoff SR et al, 2009 compared the expression in biparental fetuses with parthenogenetic fetuses and observed patterns supportive of maternal expression in some assays but not others. In view of the complexity of their results, and the possible maternal expression that contrasts with paternal expression in mice, more supportive evidence is needed before imprinting of porcine SLC38A4 can be confirmed.
