Disease relevance of Gp9


High impact information on Gp9

  • This pattern of selection is remarkably similar to that observed for the maternal effect selfish genes, Medea in flour beetles and scat in the mouse, and the Gp-9 gene in the fire ant [2].
  • The deduced amino-acid sequence (177aa) was 71% identical to the human GPIX protein [3].
  • Mouse GPIX contained a leucine-rich glycoprotein sequence composed of 24 amino acids, as did human GPIX [3].
