Previous Symbols for MT1HL1 Gene
This gene is a retrotransposed gene, compared to MT1H (GeneID:4496). This retrogene is transcribed. It retains a full-length CDS, and is assumed to be translated. Compared to the MT1H product, this protein product differs at three internal amino acids, two of which are at metal-binding sites. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2013]
