In UCSC's genome browser, in the UCSC genes track, there are genes with names like

"AK125749"

"BC043543"

Are there other gene appellations like these? What are they? Can you tell the meaning of the appelation from the prefix? How does one find out about such a gene?

Thank you!

AK is DDBJ-sourced, BC is MGC project-sourced.
