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)

  1. NM_001002292.4NP_001002292.3  protein wntless homolog isoform 2

    See identical proteins and their annotated locations for NP_001002292.3

    Status: VALIDATED

    Description
    Transcript Variant: This variant (2) uses an alternate in-frame splice site in the 5' coding region, and differs in the 5' UTR, 3' coding region and 3' UTR, compared to variant 1. The resulting isoform (2) has a distinct C-terminus and is longer than isoform 1.

    Status: VALIDATED

    Description
    Transcript Variant: This variant (3) differs in the 5' UTR and lacks an alternate in-frame exon in the 5' coding region, compared to variant 1, resulting in an isoform (3) that is shorter than isoform 1.
