Reference: J:48293 Reule M, et al., Analysis of Peg1/Mest imprinting in the mouse. Dev Genes Evol. 1998 May;208(3):161-3
Assay type: RT-PCR
MGI Accession ID: MGI:2681478
Gene symbol: Mest
Gene name: mesoderm specific transcript
Probe: Mest-pA, Mest-pB
Assay notes: The results of this assay were not shown. The RT-PCR sample was digested with the restriction endonuclease TaqI prior to electrophoresis. The mus allele gives three bands of 284, 173 and 30bp. The spretus allele gives two bands of 284 and 203bp. Author states that there was a discrepancy in the results obtained in 2 experiments at E3.5.

(a) Age normalized so that noon of plug day = E0.5.
(b) This band is present in the spretus allele.
(c) This band is present in the mus allele.
