Genes exclusively expressed in male germ cells encode proteins that play important roles in spermatogenesis and fertilization. In this study, we investigated the expression of a novel spermatogenic cell-specific gene known as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis 2 chromosome region candidate 12 (Als2cr12). Our in silico and in vitro analyses revealed that the mouse Als2cr12 gene produces two transcript isoforms by alternative splicing and that one of the isoforms is unique to spermatogenic cells… CONTINUE READING
