    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_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.
