Previous GeneCards Identifiers for SLX1A-SULT1A3 Gene
This locus represents naturally occurring read-through transcription between the neighboring SLX1A (SLX1 structure-specific endonuclease subunit homolog A) and SULT1A3 (sulfotransferase family, cytosolic, 1A, phenol-preferring, member 3) genes on the short arm of chromosome 16. A duplicate read-through locus also exists between the SLX1B and SULT1A4 genes located ~730 kb upstream on the same chromosome. The read-through transcript is a candidate for nonsense-mediated mRNA decay (NMD), and is thus unlikely to produce a protein product. [provided by RefSeq, Nov 2010]
