[ensembl-dev] Probably duplicated human gene in latest release

Hello Wolf,

The latter link is for Ensembl release 75, which was the final release 
in which GRCh37 was used. So the records represented by those two links 
are for two different assemblies of the genome. Between that and the 
periodic updates that do happen to annotations between releases, it's 
not surprising the transcripts for the gene would be different. If you 
look in the gene history [1] page on the current release you can see the 
gene was updated and the version number incremented in Ensembl release 81.

If I'm misunderstanding your question, please let me know and we can try 
to resolve it. Cheers.

Also the description, including the HGNC Symbol is the same, which makes me think that this is some kind of error. Both entries should probably be merged. Here are the two entries for the same gene:
