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.
MIR99AHG: mir-99a-let-7c cluster host gene(HGNC nomenclature)
"megakaryocytic oncogenic non-coding RNA", MONC
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.
MIR99HG is localized in the nucleus and their expression correlated with the corresponding miRNA clusters.
- myeloid leukemia
LncRNAs MONC and MIR100HG are highly expressed in AMKL（acute megakaryoblastic leukemia） blasts.
MONC is ubiquitously expressed at reasonably high levels and is conserved in mouse ESTs.
