Taxon:

Mouse

Gene:

Blcap

Chromosome:

02

Location:

88.0 cM, Band H1

Description:

Blcap (bladder cancer associated protein homolog) showed preferential maternal expression in the brain, but no evidence of imprinting was present in placenta, testis, heart, lung, liver and skeletal muscle tissue. The authors proposed that the tissue-specific imprinting of Blcap is due to the particularly high transcriptional activity of Nnat in brain, a known imprinted gene (Schulz R et al, 2009).
However, Okae H et al, (2012) confrimed bialleic expression of Blcap in placenta.
