Imprinted genes are monoallelically expressed in a parent-of-origin-specific manner under epigenetic regulation. Although it is generally believed that genomic imprinting is conserved among mammalian species, there is accumulating evidence that suggests such an assumption is false. Identification of species-specific imprinted genes is necessary to understand the evolution of genomic imprinting and to elucidate mechanisms leading to allele-specific expression. In this study, we analyzed the… CONTINUE READING
