High impact information on gmcl1

  • In the adult, gcl mRNA was widely expressed in developing germ cells of both ovary and testis [1].
  • Results of in situ hybridization indicated that the transcripts of zebrafish gcl are evenly distributed in all blastomeres from the 2-cell stage to the blastula period, different from that of vasa, nonas1 and dead end mRNA, and condense into some clusters of cells located along the blastoderm margin from the gastrulation period [1].

Anatomical context of gmcl1

  • The gene of germ cell-less (gcl) has been shown to be important in early differentiation of germ cells in Drosophila [1].
