Abstract. Genomic imprinting is a method of gene regulation whereby a gene is expressed in a parent-of-origin-dependent fashion; however, it is hypothesized that imprinting should not occur in oviparous taxa such as birds. Therefore, we examined the allelic expression of two genes in the chicken that are reciprocally imprinted in most mammals, mannose 6-phosphate/insulin-like growth factor 2 receptor (M6P/IGF2R) and insulin-like growth factor 2 (IGF2). Single nucleotide polymorphisms were… CONTINUE READING
