Taxon:

Mouse

Gene:

Casd1 (Cas1, Cast1) (provisional)

Chromosome:

06

Location:

6 A1 (2a), 1.8 cM, 46 Mb (GRCm38)

Description:

Casd1 (CAS1 domain containing 1) showed slightly biased (60%) maternally expression in C57Bl/6J x CAST/EiJ whole embryos (Babak T et al, 2008).
RNA-seq studies from Okae H et al (2012) also showed baised (67%) maternal expression of Casd1 in E13.5 placenta.
In humans, CASD1 showed biallelic expression in first trimester and term placentas, and in fetal tissues (Monk D et al, 2008).
Casd1 shows one of the lowest parental biases of any putative imprinted genes. The concordance between the two reports is useful, but additional data would be helpful.
