Taxon:

Human

Gene:

DSCAM

Chromosome:

21

Location:

21q22.2

Description:

DSCAM (DS cell adhesion molecule) showed monoallelic expression in tissue from 13 placentas, and in all seven informative cases the expressed allele was paternally derived. A DMR in intron 1 showed low methylation in sperm, suggesting maternal-specific methylation of the DMR (Allach El Khattabi L et al, 2018).
There was no evidence for imprinted gene expression in mice.
