Table 3 Monoallelic expression results, the number and proportion of SNP tested that were showing monoallelic expression (MAE SNP), that is the major allele is at a frequency >90 %, in each tissue and in total. Also the number and proportion of genes tested that contained MAE SNP (Genes w/ MAE SNP). Then the number and proportion of genes with greater than one SNP showing MAE (Genes w/ 1 MAE SNP) in each tissue and in total

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