This locus represents naturally occurring read-through transcription between the neighboring apolipoprotein C-IV (APOC4) and apolipoprotein C-II (APOC2) genes on chromosome 19. 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, Mar 2011]
