Disease relevance of SDCCAG8


High impact information on SDCCAG8

  • Serum antibody to p53 and HOXB7 is positively associated with EOC, whereas NY-CO-8-specific antibody shows negative association [2].
  • The 2139 bp open reading frame of hCCCAP encodes an 82.5 kDa protein that is 71% identical to mCCCAP at the amino acid level and has the same predicted secondary structure [1].
  • Ectopically expressed full-length hCCCAP in human U2-osteosarcoma cells also displayed centrosomal localization during interphase and mitosis [1].
