Table 1 Allele specific expression analysis results, the number of SNP tested and the number and proportion that showed significant ASE (ASE SNP) in each tissue and in total. Also the number of genes containing SNP tested for ASE (Genes tested) and genes containing greater than one SNP tested for ASE (Genes w/ >1 SNP tested) and then the number and proportion that contained SNP significant for ASE (Genes w/ ASE SNP) and the number and proportion that contained greater than one SNP significant for ASE (Genes w/ >1 ASE SNP) in each tissue and in total. Then finally the number and proportion of genes tested that showed significant ASE in at least one but not all tissues tested (Genes w/ TS ASE SNP) in each tissue and in total

From: Extensive variation between tissues in allele specific expression in an outbred mammal
