Entrez Gene Summary for PYURF Gene

  • The product of this gene, which is well-conserved, is encoded by the same bicistronic transcript that encodes phosphatidylinositol glycan anchor biosynthesis, class Y, but the two proteins are unrelated. This gene represents the protein encoded by the upstream open reading frame, while the protein encoded by the downstream open reading frame is represented by GeneID:84992.
