This gene represent a snoRNA host gene and produces a long non-coding RNA. This RNA may regulate gene expression by acting as a sponge for microRNAs. This transcript may also stabilize mRNAs by blocking degradation by staufen double-stranded RNA binding protein 1. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2017]

RefSeqs maintained independently of Annotated Genomes

These reference sequences exist independently of genome builds. Explain

These reference sequences are curated independently of the genome annotation cycle, so their versions may not match the RefSeq versions in the current genome build. Identify version mismatches by comparing the version of the RefSeq in this section to the one reported in Genomic regions, transcripts, and products above.
