I recently downloaded data from NCBI in XML format using EUtilities. I found records that have 'suspect' ChrStart and ChrSort fields (ChrStart = 999999999; ChrSort = ~~last) and there is no ChrStop field. See the 2 examples below.

Has someone already seen this case before?

Should I consider them as suspect or as unlocalized or maybe unreferenced genes in NCBI?

Thanks in advance
