This locus represents naturally occurring read-through transcription between the neighboring HNRNPUL2 (heterogeneous nuclear ribonucleoprotein U-like 2) and BSCL2 (Berardinelli-Seip congenital lipodystrophy 2 (seipin)) genes on chromosome 11. The read-through transcript is a candidate for nonsense-mediated mRNA decay (NMD), and is unlikely to produce a protein product. [provide... See more...
