Allele-specific expression ratio of 37 genes in P2 brains of 18 female F1 progeny from each of the two reciprocal crosses between AKR and PWD strains. (a) Allele-specific expression profiling of 26 genes that are subject to X inactivation. The pink boxplot in the middle is the distribution of PWD expression percentage from the PWD X AKR cross for all X-linked genes that are subject to X inactivation. It is labeled pink because PWD is the maternal allele in this cross. The blue boxplot is the distribution of PWD expression percentage from the AKR X PWD cross. It is labeled blue because PWD is the paternal allele in this cross. (b) Allele-specific expression profiling of known genes that escape X inactivation (Xi) in mouse: Utx and Eif2s3x. (c) Allele-specific expression profiling of known genes that escape X inactivation in mouse: Ddx3x and Jarid1c. (d) Allele-specific expression profiling of Xist, Tsix and Xite transcripts. (e) Allele-specific expression profiling of four autosomal genes: Cab39l, Pex7, Hibadh and Trpm6.
