High impact information on Synpr


Biological context of Synpr

  • Its deduced amino acid sequence displays 97% and 81% identity with the synaptoporin of rat and chicken, respectively [5].
  • This gene was mapped to the chromosome 3p14.3 by matching against the Human Genome Sequence Database. 16-tissue RT-PCR analysis shows that human synaptoporin is specifically expressed in the brain [5].
