Differentially expressed genes between parthenogenote and androgenote are good candidates for the identification of imprinted genes, which are specifically expressed either from the maternal or the paternal allele. To systematically search differentially expressed genes between parthenogenote and androgenote, we used RIKEN Full-Length mouse cDNA Microarray (17K). (See the abstract of Miki, R. et. al.)

We selected about 25 genes as imprinted candidates. Known imprinted genes, such as IgfII (Insulin-like-growth factor II), Snrpn (small nuclear ribonuclear protein) and Neuronatin are included.

For some of the other genes, we have confirmed these results by RT-PCR.

We have also confirmed the imprinted expressions by analyzing SNPs, which we found in the candidate genes, in two F1 crosses between B6 and Jf1 mice.

We propose a high-throughput screening strategy to systematically search the mice imprinted genes.
