High impact information on SS18L2

  • Through in silico methods with sequence information contained in the public databases, we did the same for the human SS18 gene and two human SS18 homologous genes, SS18L1 and SS18L2 [1].
  • The smaller SS18L2 gene, which is composed of three exons with similar boundaries as the first three exons of the other three genes, was mapped to chromosome 3 band p21 [1].
  • An additional phylogenetic study indicated that the more divergent SS18L2 gene is most likely derived from an earlier gene duplication event, again in the vertebrate lineage [2].
