Disease relevance of SPANXC


High impact information on SPANXC

  • The two transcription units mapping within this interval are the LDOC1 and SPANXC genes [3].
  • Differential nuclear localization of the cancer/testis-associated protein, SPAN-X/CTp11, in transfected cells and in 50% of human spermatozoa [4].
  • In this paper, we identify homology of the CTA CTp11 with SPAN-X (sperm protein associated with the nucleus mapped to the X chromosome) [4].
  • CTp11 tended to be expressed by primary melanomas and NY-ESO-1 by metastatic samples (P < 0.02) [2].

Other interactions of SPANXC

  • NY-ESO-1 may be a marker of more advanced disease and CTp11 of less advanced disease [2].
