nomenclature changes

09/24/2017 Human name has changed for Entrez Gene: 6005. From Rh-associated glycoprotein to Rh associated glycoprotein This genepage renamed to rhagl = rhag like on 5/20/2019 by KAB. This appears to be a retrotranscribed version of rhag inserted into a new locus. Linking to human rhag is still appropriate, but there is a true orthologue genepage, and that genepage retains the name rhag

summary from NCBI

The protein encoded by this gene is erythrocyte-specific and is thought to be part of a membrane channel that transports ammonium and carbon dioxide across the blood cell membrane. The encoded protein appears to interact with Rh blood group antigens and Rh30 polypeptides. Defects in this gene are a cause of regulator type Rh-null hemolytic anemia (RHN), or Rh-deficiency syndrome.[provided by RefSeq, Mar 2009]
