XIST – Wikipedia

also XIC

Xist (X-inactive specific transcript) is an RNA gene on the X chromosome of the placental mammals that acts as a major effector of the X inactivation process.[4] It is a component of the Xic – X-chromosome inactivation centre[5] – along with two other RNA genes (Jpx and Ftx) and two protein genes (Tsx and Cnbp2).[6]
