Summaries for MEG8 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for MEG8 Gene

  • This gene is located in a cluster of imprinted genes on chromosome 14q32.3. It encodes a a non-protein coding transcript that is preferentially expressed from the maternal allele in skeletal muscle, and appears to be coordinately regulated with other imprinted genes in this region.
