Hi, can some solve this refseq puzzle for me.

For the gene 0610010B08Rik, on the ucsc browser, it says

RefSeq Gene 0610010B08Rik

RefSeq: NM_001177543.1 Status: Validated

Description: Mus musculus RIKEN cDNA 0610010B08 gene (0610010B08Rik), mRNA.

CCDS: CCDS50826.1

Entrez Gene: 100039060

PubMed on Gene: 0610010B08Rik

PubMed on Product: KRAB box and zinc finger C2H2 type domain containing

Stanford SOURCE: NM_001177543

mRNA/Genomic Alignments

The alignment you clicked on is first in the table below.

This alignment information is encoded in to the refgene table (mm10) when you pull it from ucsc which means for the gene 0610010B08Rik, there are 6 entries with the same NM id's (same rna). I always collapse the multiple entries to the one longest entry but in this case, for a same gene, there are entries with different strands. How is this possible.

From the refseq method page, its says

RefSeq RNAs were aligned against the mouse genome using blat; those with an alignment of less than 15% were discarded. When a single RNA aligned in multiple places, the alignment having the highest base identity was identified. Only alignments having a base identity level within 0.1% of the best and at least 96% base identity with the genomic sequence were kept.

Secondly, for my unique list, which entry should I take.
