f4-largehttp://molehr.oxfordjournals.org/content/21/4/320/F4.expansion.html

Day 133 has 30 protein-coding genes (browser view) including the subcortical maternal complex (SCMC).

This cluster of four genes is expressed specifically in eggs and has an unknown role in development. They are maternal effect genes, or genes where the effect on the child depends entirely on the version of the gene carried by the mother. The gene cluster has kept its order (conserved synteny) across eutherian mammals.
