Description:

PEG3 (paternally expressed 3) is predominantly paternally expressed in brain (86%), kidney (85%), and lung (86%) tissue from day 135 fetuses, indicating genomic imprinting (Duan J et al, 2018).
PEG3 expression in day 21 parthenogenetic fetuses was 0.2-fold that of control fetuses, further indicating predominant paternal expression. In parthenogenetic chorioallantois it was 0.05-fold that of controls (Thurston A et al 2008).
