Fig. 2

Transcript abundance of genes from the DLK1-DIO3 locus. aDLK1; bRTL1; cMEG8 and dMEG3. Least square means and standard errors for log transcript abundance are shown for each muscle and genotype, callipyge (+/C) and normal (+/+). The hypertrophied muscles are LD, SM, ST, and TB and the non-hypertrophied muscles are SS, IS and HT. The increased expression of paternally allele-specific genes DLK1 and RTL1, and the maternal allele-specific non-coding RNA MEG8 and MEG3 in callipyge hypertrophied muscles are shown. Significant differences are indicated by (*; P < 0.05, or **; P < 0.01) between genotypes within each muscle
