Taxon:

Human

Gene:

C19MC

Chromosome:

19

Location:

19q13.42

Description:

C19MC is the largest human microRNA gene cluster discovered to date. This 100-kb long cluster consists of 46 tandemly repeated, primate-specific pre-miRNA genes (Bortolin-Cavaille ML et al, 2009). C19MC is preferentially expressed from the paternally inherited chromosome in the placenta. This locus adds to the list of imprinted repeated small RNA clusters (Noguer-Dance M et al, 2010).
