This locus represents naturally occurring read-through transcription from the neighboring IQ motif containing J (IQCJ) and schwannomin interacting protein 1 (SCHIP1) genes. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants that are composed of in-frame exons from each individual gene. The resulting fusion products are thought to be components of the multimolecular complexes of axon initial segments and nodes of Ranvier, and they may play a role in calcium-mediated responses.
