MIR99AHG, the human miR-99a/100 ~ 125b cluster host genes, resides in the nuclear cell compartment, where it plays a role in the regulation of erythro-megakaryocytic development.


Annotated Information


MIR99AHG: mir-99a-let-7c cluster host gene(HGNC nomenclature)

"megakaryocytic oncogenic non-coding RNA", MONC[1]


MIR99AHG 5 spans ~ 500 kb and is composed of at least 11 exons, of which only 3 are consistently predicted by coding exon-prediction programs.Exons 3, 6, 7, and 10 are alternatively spliced, suggesting multiple transcripts can be produced. The longest possible tran-script is ~ 1300 bp, with the only significant open reading frame (> 100 amino acids) located in exons 1 and 2. If this indeed represents a translated product, it implies MIR99AHG has an unusual 3’ UTR composed of ~ 9 exons[2].

Cellular Localization

MIR99HG is localized in the nucleus and their expression correlated with the corresponding miRNA clusters[1].


LncRNAs MONC and MIR100HG as regulators of hematopoiesis and oncogenes in the development of myeloid leukemia[1]. In AMKL they contribute to the maintenance of leukemic growth[1].


  • myeloid leukemia


LncRNAs MONC and MIR100HG are highly expressed in AMKL(acute megakaryoblastic leukemia) blasts[1].

MONC is ubiquitously expressed at reasonably high levels and is conserved in mouse ESTs[2].

Note: For each edit version that is contributed by a specific person, his/her contribution is quantified as its edit quality multiplied by its edit quantity; the edit quantity amounts to the edit distance in comparsion with its previous version (that is, the minimum number of edit operations required to transform one string into the other), and the edit quality corresponds to whether the edit persists in comparison with the last version, ranging from -1, when the edit is entirely reverted (short-lived), to 1, indicating that the edit is totally preserved in the last version (long-lived). Please also note that contribution quantification may take time to reflect recent edits.
*Since one person may perform many discontinuous edits for a wiki page, contribution score is the sum of quantified contributions over all participated edits.
#Multiple successive edits provided by a researcher are counted as one edit.
ΛSummed edit quantity is the sum of edit quantities over all participated edits.
Averaged edit quality is the edit quality normalized over all participated edits.
