mRNA without main open reading frame?

A number of RNAs have been reported which were found as cDNAs
but do not encode proteins.  XIST (the possible X-inactivation
switch) and H19 (forget the function -- but it's imprinted)
are two examples from mammals.  You might find a review on
XIST helpful.

Good luck!
