Gene: Mt1-ps2 (metallothionein 1, pseudogene 2) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Mt1-ps2
Name: metallothionein 1, pseudogene 2
RGD ID: 3119
Description: INTERACTS WITH atorvastatin calcium; fructose
Type: pseudo  of Mt1  
RefSeq Status: INFERRED
Previously known as: metallothionein 1, pseudogene B; Mt1pb
Related Functional Gene: Mt1  
Is Marker For: QTLs:   Bp18  
Latest Assembly: mRatBN7.2 - mRatBN7.2 Assembly
NCBI Annotation Information: Genome Annotation Status: not in current annotation release; Note: This pseudogene (GeneID 24569) was annotated incorrectly on chromosome 19 on the reference and Celera assemblies of NCBI's build 4.2, in a location overlapping the related functional gene, GeneID 24567. This pseudogene, defined by sequence within the repeat regions of M11797.1, is believed to be on rat chromosome 2 but appears to be absent from the strains represented in this region of either rat genome assembly.
