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 (3) differs in the 5' UTR and uses an alternate in-frame splice site in the 5' coding region, compared to variant 1. It encodes isoform 2, which lacks an internal segment and is shorter than isoform 1.

RNA

  1. NR_120447.2 RNA Sequence

    Status: VALIDATED

    Description
    Transcript Variant: This variant (5) contains an alternate 5' terminal exon and lacks two internal exons, compared to variant 1. This variant is represented as non-coding because the use of the 5'-most expected translational start codon, as used in variant 1, renders the transcript a candidate for nonsense-mediated mRNA decay (NMD).
