Papers on KPL2
Infertile boars with knobbed and immotile short-tail sperm defects in the Finnish Yorkshire breed.
Andersson et al., Helsinki, Finland. In Reprod Domest Anim, 2008
The ISTS defect is a manifestation of an autosomal recessive disease caused by an insertion in the KPL2 gene in porcine chromosome 16.
Infertile Finnish Yorkshire boars carry a full-length LINE-1 retrotransposon within the KPL2 gene.
Thomsen et al., Finland. In Mol Genet Genomics, 2007
The KPL2 gene is expressed predominantly in cells with cilia or flagella.
An intronic insertion in KPL2 results in aberrant splicing and causes the immotile short-tail sperm defect in the pig.
Vilkki et al., Finland. In Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A, 2006
Sequence analysis of a candidate gene KPL2 revealed the presence of an inserted retrotransposon within an intron.
Cloning and characterization of KPL2, a novel gene induced during ciliogenesis of tracheal epithelial cells.
Nettesheim et al., United States. In Am J Respir Cell Mol Biol, 1999
One of these, KPL2, detected a messenger RNA transcript of approximately 6 kb when used as a probe on Northern blots of RNA from ciliated cultures but was undetectable in RNA from nonciliated cultures.
