Taxon:

Human

Gene:

AIM1

Chromosome:

06

Location:

6q21

Description:

Allele-specific methylation and expression of AIM1 (absent in melanoma 1) has been detected in human placenta (Das R et al, 2013). In two cases the methylated allele was maternal and in four cases the allele-specific expression of the long transcript (not the short transcript) was paternal.
Metsula T et al (2014) reported that four informative placentas showed preferential paternal expression, confirming imprinting of this gene.
