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.

    See identical proteins and their annotated locations for NP_001099013.1

    Status: VALIDATED

    Description
    Transcript Variant: This variant (3) has a different 3' terminal exon, and is missing many coding exons found in variant 1. It thus encodes a shorter isoform (3) with the same N-terminus, but a different C-terminus compared to isoform 1.
