Entrez Gene Summary for BORCS8-MEF2B Gene

  • This gene represents numerous read-through transcripts that span GeneID:729991 and 100271849. Many read-through transcripts are predicted to be nonsense-mediated decay (NMD) candidates, and are thought to be non-coding. Some transcripts are predicted to be capable of translation reinitiation at a downstream AUG, resulting in expression of at least one isoform of myocyte enhancer factor 2B (MEF2B) from this read-through locus. At least one additional MEF2B variant and isoform can be expressed from a downstream promoter, and is annotated on GeneID:100271849. [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2010]
