Table S1 - Known imprinted genes in flowering plants. In the angiosperms, eleven imprinted genes had been reported from Arabidopsis thaliana and related species, six from maize and one from rice. All but three are expressed solely from the maternally inherited allele. With the exception of MEDEA, for which conflicting reports have been published (for discussion see [72]), all imprinted Arabidopsis thaliana genes show mono-allelic expression only in the terminally differentiating endosperm, whereas maize Mee1 clearly shows imprinted expression in the maize embryo.
