Semenogelin II gene is replaced by a truncated line 1 repeat in the cotton-top tamarin.

Abstract

The human seminal vesicles secrete two proteins, semenogelin I and semenogelin II, at very high concentrations. It has previously been shown that the cotton-top tamarin (Sanguinus oedipus), a New World monkey, is lacking the semenogelin II gene. We have now determined the nucleotide sequence of DNA located 5--13 kilobases (kb) downstream of the tamarin… (More)
