Summaries for MESTIT1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for MESTIT1 Gene

  • This gene encodes a non-protein coding antisense RNA that is imprinted, and preferentially expressed from the paternal allele. It is located in an intron of MEST gene in the opposite orientation, and shares the promoter region in common with one of the promoters (P2) of MEST gene. The antisense RNA is expressed predominantly in testis and mature motile spermatozoa, suggesting that it may be involved in the regulation of MEST expression during development.[provided by RefSeq, Oct 2010]

fRNAdb sequence ontologies for MESTIT1 Gene

  • antisense_RNA: Antisense RNA is RNA that is transcribed from the coding, rather than the template, strand of DNA. It is therefore complementary to mRNA.
