This locus represents naturally occurring read-through transcription between the neighboring TMEM56 (transmembrane protein 56) and RWDD3 (RWD domain containing 3) genes on chromosome 1. The read-through transcript encodes a protein that shares sequence identity with the upstream gene product, but it contains a distinct C-terminus due to frameshifts versus the downstream gene coding sequence.
