High impact information on Es2

  • These data suggest that a gene located on chromosome 7 encodes a trans-acting regulatory factor that might be a negative effector of the Nmo-1 gene, which we show here is located on chromosome 8 approximately 1.4 centimorgans (about 1000 kilobase pairs) from the Es-2 gene [1].
  • Interestingly, expression of the adjacent Es2 gene in the pons region of Gscl null fetuses was absent, suggesting that mutations within the DGS/VCFS region can influence expression of adjacent genes [2].
  • Mapping of the LCAT gene (Lcat) to mouse Chromosome 8 within 2 centimorgans of the Es-2 locus indicates that it does not correspond to any previously mapped loci affecting high density lipoprotein phenotypes in the mouse [3].
  • LG VI now contains five loci with the following order and intervening map distances: Es-1, Es-2 complex--6.3 +/- 2.1 cM--Est-1, Est-2 complex--18.5 +/- 3.7 cM--e [4].
  • Homology modeling and active-site residues probing of the thermophilic Alicyclobacillus acidocaldarius esterase 2 [5].

Biological context of Es2


Other interactions of Es2

  • 4. Recombination studies on a further 129 animals confirmed that the Es-7 locus is tightly linked to Es-2 and Es-11 [8].
  • In backcrosses, ES-11 segregates as an autosomal gene, designated Es-11, closely linked to Es-2 and Es-5 on chromosome 8 [9].
  • Locus Es-30 is shown to be closely linked to Es-2 and to Es-7 of cluster-2 on chromosome 8 [10].
  • With the non selectively staining Q-O-2 several esterases were demonstrated Es-2, adn Es-9 among them [11].
