High impact information on GPATCH8

  • Sequencing the region surrounding the human alphaIIb locus showed the Granulin gene approximately 18 kb downstream to alphaIIb, and the KIAA0553 gene approximately 5.7 kb upstream [1].
  • RESULTS: Hypothetical protein KIAA0553 was expressed 120 times among 917 ESTs from an adult cardiac library (13.1%) compared only once among 8075 ESTs from fetal cardiac libraries (P < 10(-114)), this was confirmed using Northern analysis [2].
