Tetratricopeptide repeat domain 9A (TTC9A) is a target gene of estrogen and progesterone. It is over-expressed in breast cancer. However, little is known about the physiological function of TTC9A. The objectives of this study were to establish a Ttc9a knockout mouse model and to study the consequence of Ttc9a gene inactivation. The Ttc9a targeting vector(More)
Monoclonal antibody (mAb) 5B4 recognizes a developmentally regulated membrane glycoprotein (Mr approximately 185,000-255,000) expressed on sprouting neurons. The amino acid sequence deduced from lambda gt11 cDNA clones encoding the transmembrane and cytoplasmic domains of the 5B4 antigen is co-linear with that of chick NCAM-ld. The significant level of(More)
Monoclonal antibody 5B4 recognizes a carboxy-terminal epitope common to large (approximately 180 kDa) and short (approximately 140 kDa) forms of neural cell adhesion molecules (NCAM-ld and NCAM-sd, respectively). The deduced primary sequence of rat brain 5B4/NCAM-ld predicts a large cytoplasmic domain (390 amino acids, Mr 39,284) of striking amino acid(More)
