The 3' UTR of CG9455 overlaps the downstream gene Spn1. Only evidence (black panel) directly used to annotate the gene models (cyan panel) is shown. This example of tandem overlapping genes is supported by full-insert cDNA sequences (dark green) and assembled EST and cDNA sequencing reads (light green). The 3' UTR of the CG9455 transcript (dark blue) extends past the initiation site of the Spn1 transcript (dark blue). BLASTX data (red) demonstrate that these transcripts encode independent proteins.
