High impact information on GDPD2

  • To identify a role for GDE3 in osteoblast differentiation, MC3T3-E1 cells stably expressing the full-length protein were constructed [1].
  • Immunofluorescence staining with GDE3 antibody and phalloidin in MC3T3-E1 cells indicated that endogenous GDE3 might be co-localized with the actin cytoskeleton [1].
  • In amino acid sequences, GDE2 and GDE6 are 43.7% and 34.3% identical to GDE3, respectively [2].
  • Although GDE3 mRNA is highly expressed in bone tissue and spleen, GDE2 mRNA was expressed in a variety of mouse tissues including lung and heart, while the GDE6 transcript was particularly abundant in spermatocytes of mouse testis [2].
