Is it good to merge transcripts tpm to gene which is of different gene type?

I have gene expression data from kallisto with tpm expression. I would like to sum the tpm of transcripts that belong to the same gene and just summarize the TPMs for each gene.

But I see that same gene has a different gene_type. In that case can I sum the tpm of transcripts that belong to the gene? Do you think this can be done or not possible?

Yea, usually we use tximport or tximeta to get the gene-level values

You probably should state what your goal is.

I would also suggest having a look at guidelines such as https://www.bioconductor.org/help/course-materials/2019/CSAMA/materials/labs/lab-03-rnaseq/rnaseqGene_CSAMA2019.html

My goal is to use the genes tpm for estimating immune cell infiltration. For this I have to use Gene names and their tpm.

I think gene part mutation is very normal in genome. If the similarity still remains very high, I think it is not a matter.

Are you sure this answer is relevant to the question here? What do mutations have to do with this and where is similarity assessed?
