This locus represents naturally occurring read-through transcription between the neighboring NEDD8 (neural precursor cell expressed, developmentally down-regulated 8) and MDP1 (magnesium-dependent phosphatase 1) genes on chromosome 14. The read-through transcript encodes a fusion protein that shares sequence identity with the products of each individual gene. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2010]
