High impact information on Nap1l5

  • Nap1l5 is located on proximal chromosome 6 and encodes a protein with homology with nucleosome assembly proteins (NAPs); it has tissue-specific imprinting with expression from the paternal allele [1].
  • Nap1l5 expression was localised mainly to the adrenal medulla, whilst Peg13 expression was observed more generally throughout the adrenal medulla and the outer cortical layers [2].
  • FISH has mapped Nap1l5 to G-band 6C1, within the sub-proximal imprinting region but several G-bands distal to the Peg1/Mest cluster [3].
  • A reassessment of imprinting regions and phenotypes on mouse chromosome 6: Nap1l5 locates within the currently defined sub-proximal imprinting region [3].
  • The detailed expression profiles of Nap1l5 and Peg13 were generally similar with widespread expression that was relatively high in the septal and hypothalamic regions, the hippocampus and the cerebral cortex [2].
