High impact information on GOLGA6

  • Enhanced lymphocytes activation was seen after exposure to GLP and p62-75, whereas the simultaneous incubation with 10mer inhibits the lymphocytes response [1].
  • The gene, designated GLP (for Golgin linked to PML), is strongly expressed as a 6-kb transcript in normal human testis [2].
  • In situ hybridization of normal human testis demonstrated that the expression of GLP was restricted to late meiotic germ cells [2].
  • GLP is 50% homologous to other Golgin-related proteins including the vesicle docking protein GM130 [2].
  • This study, which was performed under GLP-like conditions, clearly indicates that FA does not induce MN in buccal mucosa cells after peak exposures up to 1ppm and a cumulative exposure of 13.5ppmh over 2 weeks [3].

Biological context of GOLGA6

  • Best Practices for Reporting Pathology Interpretations within GLP Toxicology Studies [4].

Associations of GOLGA6 with chemical compounds

  • Detailed analysis of the underlying sequence indicated that this region comprises multiple segmental duplications, including a previously characterized duplication of the alpha7 neuronal nicotinic acetylcholine receptor subunit gene (CHRNA7) in 15q13.3 and several Golgin-linked-to-PML, or LCR15, duplications [5].

Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of GOLGA6

  • Southern blot hybridization of genomic DNA with a GLP probe demonstrated numerous homologous bands outside the PML locus [2].
