This gene is non-protein coding, is expressed exclusively from the paternal allele, and may play a role in the imprinting process. Mutations in this gene are associated with Prader-Willi syndrome. [provided by RefSeq, May 2010]
GeneCards Summary for IPW Gene
IPW (Imprinted In Prader-Willi Syndrome (Non-Protein Coding)) is an RNA Gene, and is affiliated with the lncRNA class. Diseases associated with IPW include prader-willi syndrome.
fRNAdb sequence ontologies for IPW Gene - the ORGUL cluster for this gene includes several descriptions:
nc_conserved_region: Non-coding region of sequence similarity by descent from a common ancestor.
mature_transcript: A transcript which has undergone the necessary modifications, if any, for its function. In eukaryotes this includes, for example, processing of introns, cleavage, base modification, and modifications to the 5' and/or the 3' ends, other than addition of bases. In bacteria functional mRNAs are usually not modified.
ncRNA: An RNA transcript that does not encode for a protein rather the RNA molecule is the gene product.
