Annotation information
Note: This locus contains a 2 nt deletion in a splice site compared to very similar paralogous loci, resulting in exon skipping and a frameshift in the CDS. Consequently, this locus is now considered to be a transcribed pseudogene. It is possible that the deletion is polymorphic within the population, and the gene may be functional in some individuals.

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.

The following Reference Sequences have been suppressed. Explain

  1. NM_001098729.1: Suppressed sequence

    NM_001098729.1: This RefSeq was permanently suppressed because it is now thought that this gene is a pseudogene.
