The letter appeared in late 1920s in the Uniform Turkic Alphabet, however it was borrowed by some other non-Turkic peoples of the Soviet Union during the Latinisation campaign. In the 1990s the letter was used in Chechen Latin alphabet, in 2000s it was used in the Tatar Latin alphabet, both of them however are not in wide use now. In the Chechen alphabet the majuscule looked similar to minuscule, but has a larger size.
In Unicode, the letter is in the Latin Extended-D block encoded at U+A790ꞐLATIN CAPITAL LETTER N WITH DESCENDER (HTML Ꞑ) and U+A791ꞑLATIN SMALL LETTER N WITH DESCENDER (HTML ꞑ).
