Taxon:

Human

Gene:

SLC22A2 (OCT2)

Chromosome:

06

Location:

6q26

Description:

SLC22A2 (solute carrier family 22 (organic cation transporter), member 2; OCT2) is reported to be polymorphically imprinted. Among 18 term placenta samples, 5 showed monoallelic expression and of these 4 were shown to be maternally expressed (Monk D et al, 2006). SLC22A2 and IGF2R imprinting was concordant within samples: of four samples that were informative for both genes, two showed maternally expression of both genes whereas in the two other samples, both genes were biallelically expressed.
SLC22A2 (solute carrier family 22 (organic cation transporter), member 2) is imprinted in mice (Zwart R et al, 2001).
