This locus represents naturally occurring read-through transcription between the neighboring URGCP (upregulator of cell proliferation) and MRPS24 (mitochondrial ribosomal protein S24) genes on chromosome 7. The read-through transcript is predicted to encode a protein that shares sequence identity with the upstream gene product but its C-terminal region is distinct due to a frameshift relative to the downstream gene.

RefSeqs maintained independently of Annotated Genomes

These reference sequences exist independently of genome builds. Explain

These reference sequences are curated independently of the genome annotation cycle, so their versions may not match the RefSeq versions in the current genome build. Identify version mismatches by comparing the version of the RefSeq in this section to the one reported in Genomic regions, transcripts, and products above.
