C21orf59 - Gene

Gene

C21orf59 is a gene found on the 21st chromosome at 21q22.1. A total of thirteen splice variants have been found, but only eleven protein coding ones. The most common form of C21orf59 mRNA has 1427 base pairs broken into seven exons. Its closest neighbors on the chromosome are TCP10L, FAM176C, LOC100506185, OR7E23P, and SYNJ1.
