Taxon:

Mouse

Gene:

Kcnq1 ( Kvlqt1, Kcna9)

Chromosome:

07

Location:

69.3 cM (5), distal

Description:

Kcnq1 (Kvlqt1, a potassium channel involved in human long QT syndrome) is preferentially maternally expressed in fetal mice (except brain) but biallelically expressed from the neonatal and late juvenile stages (Gould TD and Pfeifer K 1998; Paulsen M et al, 1998).
Mancini-Dinardo et al. showed lack of a full-length Kcnq1ot1 transcript on the paternal chromosome leads to the expression of genes that are normally paternally repressed (Mancini-Dinardo et al, 2006 ) .
