Further evidence for the importance of parental source of the Xce allele in X chromosome inactivation

  • Deborah J. Fowlis (a1), John D. Ansell (a1) and H. Spedding Micklem (a1)

Using mice that were mosaics for both Xce and phosphoglycerate kinase (Pgk-1) alleles, we present further evidence that the parental source of the X chromosome may affect the probability of that X chromosome remaining active. The reciprocal cross differences in PGK-1 activity described here are intermediate between those published previously for other alleles of Xce.
