Molecular characterization of human Torque Teno virus.
Nanchang, China. In Biomed Rep, Nov 2015
In addition, nest-PCR was used to detect TTV within different phylogenetic groups among the 64 specimens, and the results showed that groups 1 (TA278 strain), 4 (KC009) and 5 (CT39) were much more prevalent than groups 2 (PMV isolate) and 3 (11 genotypes) in the different departmental patients.
Cancer-testis antigen expression in digestive tract carcinomas: frequent expression in esophageal squamous cell carcinoma and its precursor lesions.
New York City, United States. In Cancer Immunol Res, 2014
The highest frequency of expression was found in esophageal squamous cell carcinomas: Positive staining for MAGEA, CT45, CT7, SAGE1, GAGE, NXF2, NY-ESO-1, and CT10 was observed in 57%, 38%, 33%, 33%, 29%, 29%, 19%, and 14% of squamous cell carcinomas, respectively.
A 1.1-Mb segmental deletion on the X chromosome causes meiotic failure in male mice.
Philadelphia, United States. In Biol Reprod, 2013
Here we report the deletion of a 1.1-Mb segment of the mouse X chromosome that is syntenic with the human Xq22.1 region and contains 20 genes that are expressed predominantly in testis and brain, including three members of the nuclear export factor gene family (Nxf2, Nxf3, and Nxf7) and five copies of preferentially expressed antigen in melanoma-like 3 (Pramel3).
[Sex chromosomes and male infertility].
Nanjing, China. In Zhonghua Nan Ke Xue, 2010
The importance of the X chromosome in mammalian spermatogenesis is suggested by its enrichment of germ cell-specific genes expressed in spermatogenesis, such as AR, USP26, TAF7L, TEX11, KAL1, AKAP4, and NXF2.
Regulation of male fertility by X-linked genes.
Philadelphia, United States. In J Androl, 2010
Recent genetic studies in mice show that X-linked, germ cell-specific genes, such as A-kinase anchor protein 4 (Akap4), nuclear RNA export factor 2 (Nxf2), TBP-associated factor 7l (Taf7l), and testis-expressed gene 11 (Tex11), indeed play important roles in the regulation of male fertility.

Brussels, Belgium. In Verh K Acad Geneeskd Belg, 2008
The genes NXF2, USP26 and TAF7L were investigated for the presence of mutations.
