SNURF a highly basic 71-aa nuclear protein. Encoded with SNRPN on a polycistronic transcript. Play an important role in maintaining differentialy methylated DNA. The gene is imprinted, and disruption of imprinting plays a role in Prader-Willi syndrome (PWS). Translated in normal, but not PWS, human, and mouse tissues.
