|Description:||A region (or regions) that includes all of the sequence elements necessary to encode a functional transcript. A gene may include regulatory regions, transcribed regions and/or other functional sequence regions.|

Same_as:http://www.biopax.org/release/biopax-level3.owl#Gene Definition: A continuant that encodes information that can be inherited through replication. Rationale: Gene is and abstract continuant that can be best described as a "schema". Gene in BioPAX is a generelization over eukaryotic and prokaryotic genes and used only for genetic interactions. Gene is often confused with DNA and RNA fragments that are physical encoding of the gene. Gene expression regulation makes use of DNA and RNA physical entities. Usage: Gene should only be used for describing GeneticInteractions.
*Neurolex imports many terms from existing community ontologies, e.g., the Gene Ontology. We try to re-use the original identifier when possible and often import content from the original ontology. However, Neurolex is a dynamic site and any content beyond the identifier should not be presumed to reflect the content or views of the source ontology. Users should consult with the authoritative source for each ontology for current information.
