The majority of X-linked protein-coding genes have an XCI status call. a The number of datasets contributing an XCI status call per gene. The number of calls is the number of studies which gave an XCI status call of subject, escape, or variable escape from XCI. Genes with no call were not mentioned in any of the studies but were included in Gencode for HG19 [38, 39]. b The distribution of RNA transcript types for genes with and without an XCI status call. Transcript type was taken from Gencode or an NCBI search [30]. CTAG are cancer-testes antigen genes which are protein-coding genes expressed exclusively in cancer and in testes and hypermethylated in other tissues making XCI status calls very difficult. Other mRNAs are mRNA genes that are not members of the CTAG family
