- Gene duplication gives rise to a new 17-kilodalton lipocalin that shows epididymal region-specific expression and testicular factor(s) regulationJ J Lareyre
Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Vanderbilt University, Nashville, Tennessee 37232, USA
Endocrinology 142:1296-308. 2001..The analysis of the open reading frame showed that the new gene encoded a putative 17-kDa lipocalin (named mEP17) related to mE-RABP...
- The 5'-flanking region of the murine epididymal protein of 17 kilodaltons gene targets transgene expression in the epididymisKichiya Suzuki
Center for Reproductive Biology Research and Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Vanderbilt University, School of Medicine, Nashville, Tennessee 37232 2633, USA
Endocrinology 144:877-86. 2003..The murine epididymal protein of 17 kDa (mEP17) gene, a novel gene homologous to mE-RABP, is located within 5 kb of the 5'-flanking region of the mE-RABP gene...
- Identification, immunolocalization, regulation, and postnatal development of the lipocalin EP17 (epididymal protein of 17 kilodaltons) in the mouse and rat epididymisSophie Fouchécourt
Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology and Center for Reproductive Biology Research, Vanderbilt University School of Medicine, Nashville, Tennessee 37232, USA
Endocrinology 144:887-900. 2003..We have previously reported that two lipocalin genes, mERABP (mouse epididymal retinoic acid binding protein), and mEP17 (mouse epididymal protein of 17 kDa), derived from an ancestral gene, are specifically expressed in the epididymis...
- Molecular evolution of epididymal lipocalin genes localized on mouse chromosome 2Kichiya Suzuki
Department of Urologic Surgery, Vanderbilt University School of Medicine, Room A 1302 MCN, 1161 21st Avenue South, Nashville, TN 37232, USA
Gene 339:49-59. 2004We previously identified two murine secretory proteins, mE-RABP(Lcn5) and mEP17(Lcn8), belonging to the lipocalin family and specifically expressed in the epididymis. The genes are contiguous and localized on mouse chromosome 2...
