This locus represents naturally occurring read-through transcription between the neighboring LYNX1 and SLURP2 genes. The readthrough transcript encodes a fusion protein comprised of sequence sharing identity with each individual gene product. The significance of this read-through transcription and the function of the resulting protein product have not yet been determined. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2017]
