MAGEL2 (nascent polypeptide-associated complex subunit alpha, muscle-specific form) was paternally
expressed from 11 tissues from 12 2-month-old piglets from reciprocal crosses between Meishan and
Large White pigs (Zhang FW et al, 2012).
Exclusive paternal expression was also observed in day 65 fetal tissues from reciprocal Yorkshire x
Meishan F1 hybridx, although in two of nine day-30 fetuses biallelic expression was detected (but
their assay may have detected genomic DNA (Guo
L et al, 2012).
