Previous GeneCards Identifiers for RTEL1-TNFRSF6B Gene
This locus represents naturally occurring read-through transcription between the neighboring RTEL1 (regulator of telomere elongation helicase 1) and TNFRSF6B (tumor necrosis factor receptor superfamily, member 6b, decoy) genes on chromosome 20. The read-through transcript is a candidate for nonsense-mediated mRNA decay (NMD), and is unlikely to produce a protein product. [provided by RefSeq, Feb 2011]
