Taxon:

Mouse

Gene:

Mas1 (disputed)

Chromosome:

17

Location:

07.45 cM, proximal

Description:

Mas1 (cell surface receptor and proto-oncogene, Mas) was reported to be paternally expressed in some embryonic tissues (Villar AJ et al, 1994) but this has been disputed (Schweifer N et al, 1997; Lyle R et al, 2000).
However, the Mas antisense RNA, which is part of the Air transcript, is imprinted, being exclusively expressed from the paternal allele (Lyle R et al, 2000; Alenina N et al, 2002).
The human data were also conflicting (see human 6q25.3-q26).
