Taxon:

Human

Gene:

LIN28B (provisional)

06

Location:

6q21

Description:

LIN28B (lin-28 homolog B) showed monoallelic expression in at least 9 placentas. In two cases the expressed allele could be determined and was paternal. Further investigation in 4 placentas showed complete methylation of the maternal allele and unmethylation of the paternal allele (Barbaux S et al, 2012). LIN28B is not imprinted in mouse placenta.
