Annotation information
Note: This locus was originally considered to be protein coding, but has been reclassified as a transcribed pseudogene because all associated transcripts are candidates for nonsense-mediated decay (NMD). PMID: 10369937 and 16492762 also state that this locus is likely to be a pseudogene. [13 Feb 2013]

NCBI Reference Sequences (RefSeq)

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.
