TAX1BP3 Gene

Tax1 (human T-cell leukemia virus type I) binding protein 3

P2RX5-TAX1BP3 Gene

P2RX5-TAX1BP3 readthrough (NMD candidate)

This locus represents naturally occurring read-through transcription between the neighboring P2RX5 (purinergic receptor P2X, ligand-gated ion channel, 5) and TAX1BP3 (Tax1 binding protein 3) genes on chromosome 17. 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]
