From NCBI Gene:

This gene encodes a small nucleolar RNA (snoRNA) that is found clustered with dozens of other similar snoRNAs on chromosome 15. These genes are found mostly within introns of the IC-SNURF-SNRPN transcript, which is paternally imprinted and from the Prader-Willi/Angelman syndrome (PWS) region. This gene has been designated as copy 1 of the cluster and may be involved in the regulation of RNA editing and/or alternative splicing of the serotonin receptor 2C (HTR2C) transcript. This gene is not thought to play a major role in PWS. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
