Potential theory has played a paramount role in both analysis and computation for boundary value problems for elliptic equations. In the middle of the last century, a potential theory was constructed for a two-dimensional elliptic equation with one singular coefficient. In the study of potentials, the properties of the fundamental solutions of the given equation are essentially and fruitfully used. At the present time, fundamental solutions of a multidimensional elliptic equation with one degeneration line are already known. In this paper, we investigate the double- and simple-layer potentials for this kind of elliptic equations. Results from potential theory allow us to represent the solution of the boundary value problems in integral equation form. By using some properties of Gaussian hypergeometric function, we prove limiting theorems and derive integral equations concerning a densities of the double- and simple-layer potentials. The obtained results are applied to find a solution of the mixed problem for the multidimensional singular elliptic equation in the half-space
