This gene is the host gene for the MIR17-92 cluster, a group of at least six microRNAs (miRNAs) that may be involved in cell survival, proliferation, differentiation, and angiogenesis. Amplification of this gene has been found in several lymphomas and solid tumors. Two non-protein coding transcript variants have been found for this host gene, but only the longest is a polycistronic transcript containing the MIR17-92 cluster. [provided by RefSeq, May 2012]
GeneCards Summary for MIR17HG Gene
fRNAdb sequence ontologies for MIR17HG 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.
