overlapping genes


Also found in: Encyclopedia.

overlapping genes

two or more GENES in which the NUCLEOTIDE SEQUENCE of part or all of one gene overlaps with that of the next gene. It may be that the genes are translated (see TRANSLATION in different reading frames (see OPEN READING FRAME), or in the same reading frame but using different initiation and termination signals for translation. In these ways the coding capacity of the genetic material can be maximized, giving more than one gene product.

For comparisons of gene expression to human tissue-specific gene expression from GTEx (GTEx Consortium, 2015), normalized counts for each cardiomyocyte donor were combined with median tissue counts downloaded from the GTEx portal and overlapping genes were kept (n = 2640).
Overlapping genes are an integral component of the genome.
We defined the common targets (overlapping genes) as predicted targets for both the reference and derived alleles of a SNP.
By comparing the data in several databases, we found that two overlapping genes and their corresponding transcripts have been given the name BCYRN1 (BC200): a gene 13,458 nt in length (chr2:47,331,060-47,344,517, GRCh38, Gencode Transcript ENST00000418539.1, and Gencode Gene ENSG00000236824.1) and a gene 200nt in length (chr2:47,335,315-47,335,514, GRCh38, Gencode Transcript ENST00000418539.2, and Gencode Gene ENSG00000236824); the two genes are in the same orientation.
Genes that exist in multiple pathways were considered as overlapping genes. These genes are thought to play multiple roles in hypothesis testing, where the weight coefficients were overestimated.
This observation indicates that these 27 overlapping genes may be strong candidates for zebrafish Nrf2 targets (Figure 3(a), indicated genes; Table S3, gray highlighted).
For the genes positively and negatively correlated with KRAS, NRAS, and HRAS expression, we analyzed the number of overlapping genes and enriched pathways.
