GJA9-MYCBP Gene

GJA9-MYCBP readthrough

This locus represents naturally occurring read-through transcription between the neighboring GJA9 (gap junction protein, alpha 9, 59kDa) and MYCBP (c-myc binding protein) genes on chromosome 1. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. These variants are either candidates for nonsense-mediated mRNA decay (NMD) and/or they lack a significant open reading frame, thus they are unlikely to produce protein products.

GJA9 Gene

gap junction protein, alpha 9, 59kDa

Connexins, such as GJA9, are involved in the formation of gap junctions, intercellular conduits that directly connect the cytoplasms of contacting cells. Each gap junction channel is formed by docking of 2 hemichannels, each of which contains 6 connexin subunits (Sohl et al., 2003 [PubMed 12881038]).[supplied by OMIM, Mar 2008]
