High impact information on OXCT2

  • Thus, we termed this gene scot-t (testis-specific succinyl CoA:3-oxo acid CoA transferase) [1].
  • The results suggest that the scot-t protein plays important roles in the energy metabolism of spermatozoa [1].
  • The scot-t protein was detected first in elongated spermatids at step 8 or 9 as faint signals and gradually accumulated during spermiogenesis [1].
  • In conclusion, we have demonstrated that h-Scot-t is a single intronless gene specifically expressed in the testis [2].
  • The entire coding region of the mRNA and the deduced amino acid sequence of human Scot-t (h-Scot-t) showed 75.4 and 75.8% identity with mouse scot-t respectively [2].

Biological context of OXCT2

  • Previously, we have cloned a testis-specific succinyl CoA: 3-oxo acid CoA transferase (scot-t) cDNA from a subtracted cDNA library of mouse testis and demonstrated its expression to be specific to late haploid male germ cells [2].
  • We showed that the h-Scot-t gene was intronless by using a polymerase chain reaction technique and that a non-functional pseudogene, 98% similar to h-Scot-t, was also located on the human genome (1p33-34.3) [2].

Associations of OXCT2 with chemical compounds

  • Cloning and characterization of a human orthologue of testis-specific succinyl CoA: 3-oxo acid CoA transferase (Scot-t) cDNA [2].
