ITFG2-AS1:ITFG2 antisense RNA 1


ITFG2-AS1 functions as a SINEUP in human cells[1].

Similar to R12A-AS1, expression of ITFG2-AS1 in HEK293T cells results in up-regulation of ITFG2 at the protein level, without affecting mRNA levels, implying that ITFG2-AS1 functions as a SINEUP in human cells.[1]


ITFG2 and its antisense RNA(ITFG2-AS1) are expressed in a broad range of human cells.[1]
