factor 14) is a maternally expressed intronless transcription factor located telomeric of COPG2 (Parker-Katiraee
L et al, 2007).
KLF14 acts as a master trans regulator of adipose gene expression. The expression levels of these
are highly correlated with concurrently measured metabolic traits (Small KS, 2011).
Baran Y et al (2015) reported that allelic expression
of KLF14 in multiple adult tissues (subcutaneous adipose, visceral adipose, adrenal gland, skeletal muscle and tibial
nerve) was consistent with imprinting of this gene (using RNA-seq). No evidence of imprinting of KLF14 was seen in
testis and whole blood tissues.
