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.

    Status: VALIDATED

    Description
    Transcript Variant: This variant (2) uses a distinct splice pattern in the 3' coding region and 3' UTR, compared to variant 1. The resulting isoform (2) has a shorter and distinct C-terminus, compared to isoform 1.

RNA

  1. NR_033344.2 RNA Sequence

    Status: VALIDATED

    Description
    Transcript Variant: This variant (3) uses an alternate splice site in the 5' region, and uses an alternate splice acceptor site at the terminal exon. This variant is represented as non-coding because the use of the 5'-most supported translational start codon, as used in variant 1, renders the transcript a candidate for nonsense-mediated mRNA decay (NMD).
