Previous GeneCards Identifiers for ZNF559-ZNF177 Gene
This locus represents naturally occurring read-through transcription between the neighboring zinc finger protein 559 (ZNF559) and zinc finger protein 177 (ZNF177) genes on chromosome 19. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants, which encode the ZNF177 protein due to either leaky scanning by ribosomes, or absence of the ZNF559 start codon.
