Taxon:

Human

Gene:

CALCR

Chromosome:

07

Location:

7q21.3 (92.9 Mb Build 36.1)

Description:

Transcripts from CALCR (calcitonin receptor) were detected only from the maternal allele in human-mouse monochromosomal hybrids (Okita C et al, 2003). In mouse, Calcr is preferentially expressed from the maternal allele in brain.
Monk D et al, (2008) found monoallelic expression of CALCR in 4 of 5 brains. In view of results from Okita et al. and mouse studies, it is reasonable to assume maternal expression. Other tissues showed biallelic expression.
Morcos L et al, (2011) found no evidence of allelic expression bias in lymphoblast cell lines.
