To investigate the structure and expression pattern of mouse Tcp11l1 (mTcp11l1) gene, the pEGFP-mTcp11l1 plasmid encoding pEGFP-mTcp11l1 fusion protein was constructed by placing the mTcp11l1 coding region into pEGFP-N1 vector and transferred into HEK293 cells. And then the subcellular location of the transferred protein was examined by fluorescence microscope. Subcellular localization indicated that TCP11L1 protein only existed in cytoplasm. RT-PCR analysis showed that Tcp1111 was expressed… 
Rapid evolution and molecular convergence in cryptorchidism-related genes associated with inherently undescended testes in mammals
TLDR
The results suggest that the scrotal testis is an ancestral state in mammals, and the ascrotal phenotype was derived multiple times in independent lineages and contributes to a better understanding of the pathogenesis of cryptorchidism in humans.
