Does expression of the retrogene UTP14c in the ovary pre-dispose women to ovarian cancer?

Abstract

It has been previously shown that the spermatogenesis associated retrogene, UTP14c, is expressed in over 50% of normal human ovaries and 80% of ovarian cancers. UTP14c is located on chromosome 13 as an intronless copy of the X-linked housekeeping gene, UTP14a. Like all spermatogenesis associated retrogenes, UTP14c is expressed in the testis and is essential… (More)
