Are there any known ports of the dot framework to z/OS?

Though, I’m aware Java/JVM has been long ported over to z/OS since the mid 90’s, I was just curious if there was even a limited port for the .net framework?

The closest thing I found from Google was someone asking about Mono on z/OS. I’m aware that Mono was independent project to make a "clean room" implementation of Microsoft's CLR (the basis of .NET). That likely, such source could have been compiled on z Linux. I suppose, given that z/Os Unix is by nature EBCIDIC, it would be more of a challenge. Then again, I suppose over 20 years ago, someone probably questioned, why run Java on the mainframe?
