The mouse lncRNA Jpx has been shown as an essential regulator in X-chromosome inactivation (XCI). Jpx RNA activates Xist expression through its trans-acting ability to evict CTCF from Xist promoter. Karner et al. (2019) reveals the intriguing finding that human JPX and mouse Jpx are functionally conserved although they have low similarity in the primary sequence and the secondary structure. This study provides an excellent model for studying lncRNA's evolution and epigenetic function.
