Taxon:

Gene:

MAGEL2

Chromosome:

01

Location:

158 Mb (Sscrofa10.2)

Description:

MAGEL2 (nascent polypeptide-associated complex subunit alpha, muscle-specific form) was paternally expressed from 11 tissues from 12 2-month-old piglets from reciprocal crosses between Meishan and Large White pigs (Zhang FW et al, 2012).
Exclusive paternal expression was also observed in day 65 fetal tissues from reciprocal Yorkshire x Meishan F1 hybridx, although in two of nine day-30 fetuses biallelic expression was detected (but their assay may have detected genomic DNA (Guo L et al, 2012).
