This locus represents naturally occurring read-through transcription between the neighboring CKLF (chemokine-like factor) and CMTM1 (CKLF-like MARVEL transmembrane domain containing 1) genes on chromosome 16. The read-through transcript produces a fusion protein that shares sequence identity with each individual gene product. [provided by RefSeq, Feb 2011]
