H19 and Igf2 are expressed and differentially imprinted in neuroectoderm-derived cells in the mouse brain


 Igf2 and H19 are reciprocally imprinted genes that are closely linked and coexpressed in tissues of mesodermal and endodermal origin. Here we report that coexpression of these genes is also found in specific fetal tissues of neuroectodermal origin, that is in the ventral midline region of both the hindbrain and spinal cord. For cells of neuroectodermal… (More)
