The spatial and temporal expression pattern of Nesp and its antisense Nespas, in mid-gestation mouse embryos

We describe the spatiotemporal expression pattern of Nesp, and its antisense transcript, Nespas. We found non-complementary expression of these two oppositely imprinted transcripts during mouse embryogenesis, in a number of forming embryonic structures. Nesp expression was primarily seen in the somites and vasculature, whereas Nespas was mainly detected in… CONTINUE READING
