Disease relevance of GPC2

  • Neither Gpc1 nor Gpc2 showed heat stress induction, while some other known anaerobic genes did [1].
  • In contrast, the transcript accumulation of gpc1 and gpc2 either remained constitutive or decreased in response to anoxia [2].

High impact information on GPC2

  • RNA gel blot analysis using the clone corresponding to Gpc2 showed decreased RNA accumulation within 6 hours of anaerobiosis, while analysis with the previously published clone, corresponding to Gpc1, showed a decrease within 24 hours [1].
