The testis- and sperm-specific nuclear autoantigenic protein, NASP, has a 2.5-kb mRNA that encodes a protein of molecular weight 73,533 and has several structural features of nuclear proteins. To further characterize NASP and confirm the structural predictions that NASP was a nuclear protein, specific immunostaining using a specific anti-recombinant protein… CONTINUE READING
