Secondly, mixture gene pairs among convergent overlapping genes accounts for 67% of all such gene overlap. We found no convergent overlapping genes that belong to coded vs.
Clustering the Reactome pathways by genic intersection demonstrated a large gene overlap (Figure 2).
Researchers also found that a control region of GDF6 that regulates activity in the wrist and foot bones and the tospeak gene overlap. Disrupting the tospeak gene interferes with GDF6 activity.
The more outlying expression events the gene overlaps, the higher the gene ranks are.
(a) The lncRNA gene overlaps with the promoter of the protein-coding gene.
(12) As the reverse transcriptase (RT) region of HBV polymerase gene overlaps the HBsAg ORF, mutations within HBsAg gene might result in structural and functional alterations in the HBV reverse transcriptase with potential influence on viral replication capacity and efficacy of antiviral drugs.
Clarke's group found that the tospeak gene overlaps a DNA region that regulates GDF6's activity in the carpals and tarsals.
