Taxon:

Human

Gene:

COPG2 (disputed)

Chromosome:

07

Location:

7q32.2 (130.0 Mb Build 36.1)

Description:

The gamma2 subunit of the coatomer protein complex (COPG2) is immediately adjacent to MEST and was reported to be expressed from the paternal allele in most fetal tissues, but biallelically in fetal brain and liver and in adult blood (Blagitko N et al, 1999). Others found biallelic expression of COPG2 in all fetal tissues and in adult blood lymphocytes (Yamasaki K et al, 2000). Yamasaki et al suggest that apparent imprinting expression of COPG2 might reflect overlapping 3' UTR transcripts from the MEST gene. In mouse Copg2 was reported to be maternally expressed (see mouse 6).
