Analysis of an intronic promoter within Synj2.

Synj2 (synaptojanin 2) encodes an inositol polyphosphate phosphatase that functions in recycling neurotransmitter vesicles and is implicated in spermatogenesis. Transcription of Synj2 is thought to occur from one of two promoters based on analysis of a variable 5' untranslated region. Clustering all known mouse Synj2 transcripts led us to uncover a novel… CONTINUE READING
