RefSeqs maintained independently of Annotated Genomes

These reference sequences exist independently of genome builds. Explain

These reference sequences are curated independently of the genome annotation cycle, so their versions may not match the RefSeq versions in the current genome build. Identify version mismatches by comparing the version of the RefSeq in this section to the one reported in Genomic regions, transcripts, and products above.

mRNA and Protein(s)

  1. NM_001313888.1NP_001300817.1  interleukin-7 isoform b

    Status: REVIEWED

    Description
    Transcript Variant: This variant (2) contains an alternate exon near the 5' end compared to variant 1. This difference causes translation initiation at a downstream AUG and results in an isoform (b) with a shorter N-terminus, compared to isoform a.

    Status: REVIEWED

    Description
    Transcript Variant: This variant (3) contains an alternate exon near the 5' end and an alternate internal exon compared to variant 1. These differences cause translation initiation at a downstream AUG and result in an isoform (c) with a shorter N-terminus, compared to isoform a.

    Status: REVIEWED

    Description
    Transcript Variant: This variant (4) contains two alternate exons in place of the first exon compared to variant 1. These differences cause translation initiation at a downstream AUG and result in an isoform (b) with a shorter N-terminus, compared to isoform a. Variants 2 and 4 both encode the same isoform (b).
