    ..By inhibitor treatment of cultured testis we observed that sub-cellular localisation of tBRD-1 may depend on the acetylation status of primary spermatocytes. ..

    ..We propose that Drosophila tBRD-1 and tBRD-2 associate into a functional BET complex in spermatocytes, which recapitulates the activity of the single mammalian BRDT-like protein. ..
