Figure 5

Rat Sfmbt2 is Imprinted in Extraembryonic Tissues. SNPs were identified in the 3' UTR of the rat Sfmbt2 gene in Sprague Dawley (SD) and F344 (F) strains. Midgestation placentas, yolk sacs and brains from crosses of SD females with F344 males (SF) and the reciprocal (FS) were analysed for allelic expression using polymorphic AciI sites. While genomic DNA and brain cDNA displayed clear biallelic patterns, both yolk sac and placenta cDNA contained mainly paternal alleles.
