NPEPL1 Gene

aminopeptidase-like 1

STX16-NPEPL1 Gene

STX16-NPEPL1 readthrough (NMD candidate)

This locus represents naturally occurring read-through transcription between the neighboring syntaxin 16 (STX16) and aminopeptidase-like 1 (NPEPL1) genes on chromosome 20. The read-through transcript is a candidate for nonsense-mediated mRNA decay (NMD), and is thus unlikely to produce a protein product. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2011]
