External Ids for MAFIP Gene
This gene was originally thought to be a protein coding gene. However, the encoded protein sequence is highly similar to the C-terminal sequence of the tektin-4 protein, and the transcript sequences of this gene are highly similar to the TEKT4 pseudogenes, which are found on chromosomes 4, 21 and Y, respectively. Therefore, this gene is thought to be another pseudogene of the TEKT4 gene (GeneID:150483). Multiple alternatively spliced transcript variants have been found for this gene.
