Entrez Gene Summary for SAA2-SAA4 Gene

  • This locus represents naturally occurring read-through transcription between the neighboring serum amyloid A2 and serum amyloid A4 genes on chromosome 11. The read-through transcript produces a fusion protein that shares sequence identity with each individual gene product. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2010]
