High impact information on RPE1

  • In the present study we have used a real-time PCR-based nascent strand DNA abundance assay to map initiation sites for DNA replication in in vivo human chromosomes around a 13.4 kb region encompassing the putative RPE gene [1].
  • The initiation sites appear to map to similar positions in both cell lines and occur outside the coding regions of the putative RPE gene [1].
  • For that reason the gene was renamed RPE1 (for ribulose 5-phosphate epimerase) [2].
  • RPE1 was localized to chromosome X. The predicted protein has a molecular mass of 25966 Daltons, a codon adaptation index (CAI) of 0.32, and an isoelectric point of 5.82 [2].
  • The second mutation, pos18, was complemented by transformation with a yeast genomic library [2].
