Detailed entry for Gene:



Human Chr11p15.5
Mouse Chr7 (distal)




The paternal allele of KCNQ1DN is repressed; maternal allele active in human fetal kidneys (Xin Z et al, 2000).

Gene Product:

KCNQ1DN (KCNQ1-downstream transcript) is located between the imprinted genes CDKN1C (p57KIP2) and KvLQT1/KCNQ1. It encodes a non-translated RNA with very low level of expression; detectable by RT-PCR but not by northern analysis (Xin Z et al, 2000).

Functional Data:
