For expression microarray studies, total RNA was isolated from liver, kidney, and brain tissue from 10 male Avy/a mice (2 per each of the 5 coat color classes) at time of weaning and coat color determination (day 22). Using Affymetrix GeneChip Mouse Genome 2.0 arrays (Santa Clara, CA), we queried the entire mouse genome for candidate metastable epialleles that display the Agouti Fingerprint. Approximately 100 of the greater than 40,000 transcripts on the mouse array displayed an expression pattern characterized as high inter-individual variation coupled with low inter-tissue variation (R-value > 1.5).
