SCAANT1, ATXN7 antisense RNA 1, directly regulates a previously unrecognized ataxin-7 sense promoter by convergent transcription that overlaps the ataxin-7 repeat and the adjacent P2A sense promoter.
SCAANT1, SCA7/ATXN7 antisense RNA 1(HGNC nomenclature)
"ATXN7 antisense RNA 1 (non-protein coding)", ATXN7-AS1, "spinocerebellar ataxia-7 antisense noncoding transcript 1"
Spinocerebellar ataxia type 7
SCAANT1, a novel antisense ncRNA transcript, located in 3q14.1 
It belongs to the category of "Antisense" in lncRNA classification.
SCAANT1 directly regulates a previously unrecognized ataxin-7 sense promoter by convergent transcription that overlaps the ataxin-7 repeat and the adjacent P2A sense promoter. .
CTCF regulates SCAANT1 expression.
Ataxin-7 sense expression and SCAANT1 expression are inversely correlated in human tissues and SCA7 patients
