Is number after "LOC" genes equal to its Entrez id ?

0

Hi everyone!

I want to ask about genes that start from "LOC", just like "LOC134466"

I wonder whether the number after "LOC" is equal to its linked Entrez id.

I searched this gene in the NCBI gene and detected several different genes.

If it is "LOC134466", does this mean that this locus is officially linked to the gene with 134466 Entrez id?
So, in this case, "LOC134466" is the locus of ZNF300P1 which Entrez id is 134466 ?

If NCBI shows official comment or any documents, websites, would you share that information ?
