Xie W et al, (2012) showed the presence of a
differentially methylated region overlapping the 5’UTR of the gene Actn1(fRNAdb ID=FR085584). The
DMR spans 825 bp (81,269,160-81,269,984;mm9 build) and contains 33 CpG dinucleotides which are
maternally methylated. Additionally, allele specific enrichment of the active histone mark, H3K4me3
was observed on the paternal allele.
