Taxon:

Mouse

Gene:

Axl (provisional evidence)

Chromosome:

07

Location:

7 A3-B1; 7 6.0 cM

Description:

Axl (a receptor tyrosine kinase). Analysis of allelic expression of Axl in blastocysts and post-implantation stages showed apparent changes in imprinting status. Blastocysts expressed Axl exclusively from the maternal allele. At E6.5 dpc, Axl was transcribed in extra embryonic tissues either exclusively or predominantly from the maternal allele while embryonic tissues showed largely unbiased allelic expression. In E9.5 placental tissue from mice homozygous, for mutant Dnmt1, there was no evidence of imprinting ( Choufani S et al, 2011).
