Summaries for XACT Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for XACT Gene

  • This gene produces a spliced long non-coding RNA that is thought to play a role in the control of X-chromosome inactivation (XCI). This transcript has been shown to specifically coat the active X chromosome in human pluripotent cells. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2015]
