Makorin ring finger protein 2

Members of the makorin family, including MKRN2, have a characteristic zinc finger composition that suggests that they are ribonucleoproteins (Gray et al., 2001 [PubMed 11597136]).[supplied by OMIM, Mar 2008] (from NCBI)

These cotransfection experiments showed that rs174545 (FADS1:miR-181a-2), rs1059611 (LPL:miR-136), rs13702 (LPL:miR-410), rs1046875 (FN3KRP:miR-34a), rs7956 (MKRN2:miR-154), rs3217992 (CDKN2B:miR-138-2-3p), and rs11735092 (HSD17B13:miR-375) decrease or abrogate miRNA-dependent regulation of the genes.

Swierniak et al., Gliwice, Poland. In Cancer Res, 2005
It included the following 19 genes: DPP4, GJB3, ST14, SERPINA1, LRP4, MET, EVA1, SPUVE, LGALS3, HBB, MKRN2, MRC2, IGSF1, KIAA0830, RXRG, P4HA2, CDH3, IL13RA1, and MTMR4, and correctly discriminated 17 of 18 additional PTC/normal thyroid samples and all 16 samples published in a previous microarray study.
