From NCBI Gene:
This gene, which encodes a non-protein coding transcript, exhibits differential DNA methylation between the two parental alleles at an adjacent CpG island, and is expressed only from the paternal allele. It is believed to be one of the causative genes for transient neonatal diabetes mellitus (TNDM), which is a rare disease characterized by intrauterine growth retardation, dehydration, and failure to thrive due to a lack of normal insulin secretion.
