This gene is contained entirely within intron 22 of the factor VIII gene; spans less than 2 kb, and is transcribed in;the direction opposite of factor VIII. A portion of intron 22 (int22h), containing F8A, is repeated twice;extragenically closer to the Xq telomere. Although its function is unknown, the observation that this gene is;conserved in the mouse implies it has some function. Unlike factor VIII, this gene is transcribed abundantly in a wide;variety of cell types.
