Description:

LINC24061 is a noncoding RNA in the Dlk1-Dio3 imprinted region between Meg8 and Meg9. It produces two alternatively spliced transcripts, both of which are predicted to be imprinted (LINC24061-v1 and LINC24061-v2) (Zhang M et al, 2017).
In a study on 32 adult cattle, Zhang M et al. (2017) determined that LINC24061-v1 is monoallelically expressed in heart, kidney, and muscle tissues whilst LINC24061-v2 is monoallelically expressed in heart, liver, spleen, lung, kidney, muscle, adipose, and brain tissues. The parental origin of the expressed allele was not determined.
The function of this ncRNA is unknown but it is predicted to be involved in cell growth and differentiation (Zhang M et al, 2017).
