High impact information on RNF32

  • In humans, RNF32 overlaps with a processed retroposon located on the opposite strand, C7orf13 [1].
  • We have cloned and characterized a novel gene, RNF32, located on chromosome 7q36 [1].
  • A double RING-H2 domain in RNF32, a gene expressed during sperm formation [1].
  • RNF32 is expressed during spermatogenesis, most likely in spermatocytes and/or in spermatids, suggesting a possible role in sperm formation [1].
  • RNF32 is contained in 37 kb of genomic DNA and consists of 9 constitutive and 8 alternatively spliced exons, most of which are alternative first exons [1].
