F10: Examples of pseudogenes with active chromatin states. (a) Processed pseudogenes (Ensembl gene ID: ENST00000495909; genomic location chr5: 90650295-90650751).

A pseudogene is a sector of DNA that structurally resembles a gene however is not efficient in coding for a protein. Pseudogenes are most commonly originated from genetics that have lost their protein-coding ability because of accumulated mutations that have happened throughout advancement. A pseudogene is a DNA series that appears like a gene but has been altered through the course of evolutionary background so it's now inactivated. A pseudogene, after that, shares some evolutionary history, so it shares some DNA series with the real gene, or the active genetics.
