Taxon:

Rat

Gene:

Sfmbt2

Chromosome:

17

Location:

17q12.3

Description:

Sfmbt2 (Scm-like with four mbt domains 2) was expressed from the paternal allele in placenta and yolk sac (Wang Q et al, 2011). However, the gene showed biallelic expression in brain. They also described a large block of miRNA in intron 10 which is absent in human, bovine and Peromyscus. Since Sfmbt2 is imprinted in mouse and rat only they proposed that this miRNA block is driving imprinting of this gene.
