High impact information on RSBN1

  • Transcription of the Rosbin gene was not observed in prepubertal testis but became detectable after Day 23 [1].
  • One of these cDNAs, Rosbin, is 3.2 kilobases (kb) long and has an open reading frame of 2385 nucleotides encoding a putative protein of 795 amino acid residues [1].
  • Rosbin: a novel homeobox-like protein gene expressed exclusively in round spermatids [1].
  • ROSBIN is associated with and is most likely phosphorylated by protein kinase A. We suggest that it plays an important role in transcriptional regulation in haploid germ cells [1].
