Taxon:

Cow

Gene:

SNRPN

Chromosome:

21

Location:

Description:

Embryos showed exclusive paternal expression of the SNRPN gene at day 17. Allele specific transcript analysis at day 40 (liver, muscle, brain, heart and placenta) showed exclusive paternal expression except in heart (3%) and placenta (7%), demonstrating SNRPN imprinting is maintained after implantation in cattle fetal tissues and placenta (Suzuki J Jr et al, 2009).
O'Doherty AM et al (2011) found bisulphite clones harbouring both fully methylated and fully unmethylated sequences consistent with allele-specific methylation.
