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.

mRNA and Protein(s)

    See identical proteins and their annotated locations for NP_001154993.1

    Status: VALIDATED

    Description
    Transcript Variant: This variant (2) differs in the 5' UTR, lacks a portion of the 5' coding region, and initiates translation at an alternate start codon, compared to variant 1. The encoded isoform (2) has a distinct N-terminus and is longer than isoform 1.

    Status: VALIDATED

    Description
    Transcript Variant: This variant (4) differs in its 5' UTR and lacks two consecutive exons in the 5' coding region compared to variant 1. This variant represents translation initiation at a downstream start codon compared to variant 1; the 5'-most initiation codon, as used in variant 1, is associated with a truncated ORF that would render the transcript a candidate for nonsense-mediated decay (NMD). Leaky scanning may allow translation initiation at the downstream start codon to encode an isoform (4) that has a shorter N-terminus, compared to isoform 1.

    Description
    Transcript Variant: This variant (5) differs in its 5' UTR and lacks an exon in the 5' coding region compared to variant 1. This variant represents translation initiation at an alternate start codon compared to variant 1; the 5'-most initiation codon, as used in variant 1, is associated with a truncated ORF that would render the transcript a candidate for nonsense-mediated decay (NMD). Leaky scanning may allow translation initiation at the downstream start codon to encode an isoform (5) that has a shorter and distinct N-terminus, compared to isoform 1.
