"gene within a gene" ex. in Higher Euk ?

Hello Jeff

An example of a gene within a gene in mammals would be the rag1 and rag2
genes which are convergently transcribed along the same stretch of DNA.

I tried to find a paper on the their gene structure but I am sure any
review will describe this.

for example:
Trends Genet 8 (12): 413-416 (Dec 1992) 
Activation of V(D)J recombination by RAG1 and RAG2.

Hi all,

Can anyone supply an example (with reference if possible) of a
"gene within a gene" structure (either strand) in the genome of
a higher eukaryote?

No one I've spoken to can supply an example, but everyone
(including me) is pretty sure they've seen examples.
