Detailed entry for Gene:

Peg11 and anti-Peg11


Human Chr14q32
Mouse Chr12 (distal)
Sheep Chr18q


Peg11 is silenced on the maternal allele and active on the paternal allele; anti-Peg11 is oppositely imprinted (Charlier C et al, 2001).

Gene Product:

The predicted protein from Peg11 is similar to viral gag-pol proteins (Charlier C et al, 2001). Anti-Peg11 is represented by an antisense, non-coding RNA transcribed from the Peg11 gene. It is defined by expressed sequence tags (ESTs) and has not been visualized on northern analysis (Charlier C et al, 2001).

Functional Data:
