    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.

      Transcript Variant: This variant (2) lacks several 3' exons but includes a novel 3' terminal exon, and it thus differs in the 3' coding region and 3' UTR, compared to variant 1. The encoded isoform (b) has a distinct and shorter C-terminus, compared to isoform a.
