High impact information on OBSL1

  • OBSL1 is located on human chromosome 2q35 within 100 kb of SPEG, another gene related to obscurin [1].
  • In this study, we report the cloning and characterization of a novel cytoskeletal adaptor, obscurin-like 1 (OBSL1), which is closely related to obscurin, a giant structural protein required for sarcomere assembly [1].
