In this Letter, it is shown using transgene insertion mouse mutants that the Makorin1-p1 pseudogene regulates the expression of its related coding gene. An example has been drawn to our attention of another transcribed pseudogene that regulates the expression of its related coding gene, but by a different mechanism, in the mollusc Lymnaea stagnalis1.
