Taxon:

Rat

Gene:

Bsr (Gtl2-associated C/D snoRNA cluster)

Chromosome:

06

Location:

6q32

Description:

Bsr is a large non-coding RNA within the Gtl2-associated C/D snoRNA cluster. It is about 100 kb long and host to 86 copies of RBII-36. Monoallelic expression was detected by RNA FISH in rat embryonic fibroblasts and primary hypothalamic neurons from E17 embryos (Royo H et al, 2007). Given that transcripts from the homologous imprinted domain in mouse are maternally expressed, it is reasonable to assume that Bsr is imprinted.
