Description:

LY6G6C (lymphocyte antigen 6 family member G6C) was preferentially maternally expressed in chorionic girdle samples from 5 out of 5 mule/hinny individuals (RNA-seq and pyrosequencing) suggestive of imprinting. It is not known to be imprinted in any other species (Wang X et al 2013).
However, Proudhon and Bourc'his (2010) have cautioned that maternal contamination of placental tissues may cause apparent imprinted maternal expression and recommend that reports of placental-specific imprinted maternal expression be interpreted with care.
