Taxon:

Gene:

anti-Rtl1 (anti-Peg11), hosts mir-431, mir-127, mir-136, mir-433, mir-434, mir-432

Chromosome:

12

Location:

54.0 cM (7), F1

Description:

anti-Rtl1 is a maternally expressed transcript - antisense to Rtl1/Peg11, an intronless, paternally expressed transcript with similarity to Sushi-like retroelements. Anti-Rtl1 hosts several imprinted (mir-431, mir-127, mir-136) and putatively imprinted (mir-433, mir-434, mir-432) micro RNAs (miRNAs), which silence Rtl1/Peg11 in trans by RNA interference (Seitz H et al. 2003, Davis E et al, 2005).
