Tektin 1

This gene product belongs to the tektin family of proteins. Tektins comprise a family of filament-forming proteins that are coassembled with tubulins to form ciliary and flagellar microtubules. This gene is predominantly expressed in the testis and in mouse, tektin 1 mRNA was localized to the spermatocytes and round spermatids in the seminiferous tubules, indicating that it may play a role in spermatogenesis.

Bone morphogenetic protein 4 (BMP4) induces buffalo (Bubalus bubalis) embryonic stem cell differentiation into germ cells.
Chauhan et al., Karnāl, India. In Biochimie, Dec 2015
qPCR analysis revealed that BMP4 at a concentration of 50-100 ngml(-1) for a culture period of 14 days led to maximum induction of germ lineage genes like DAZL, VASA, PLZF (PGC-specific); SYCP3, MLH1, TNP1/2 and PRM2 (Meiotic genes); BOULE and TEKT1 (Spermatocyte markers); GDF9, ZP2 and 3 (Oocyte markers).

Liu et al., Changsha, China. In Biol Reprod, Apr 2015
A series of genes (DNAHs, DNAL1, IFTs, and DNAAF1) associated with sperm flagellar assembly and motility, and testis-specific candidate markers (Tcte1, Tekt1, Tekt4, Spag17, Spag5, Spag9a, Spag1b, and Spef2), had low expression levels in the testis of triploid fish.

In mammals, five TEKTs (TEKT1, 2, 3, 4, and 5) have been identified in testis and spermatozoa.
Retinoic acid improve germ cell differentiation from human embryonic stem cells.
Guijin et al., Yantai, China. In Iran J Reprod Med, 2013
MATERIALS AND METHODS: hESCs were differentiated as embryoid bodies (EBs) in suspension with all-trans RA (atRA) or without atRA for 0, 1, 3, 5 and 7 days, and then the expression of VASA, SCP3, GDF9 and TEKT1 were compared by real-time PCR.

These two regions harbor two important genes for spermatogenesis: DNM2 and TEKT1.
Activity of OZ78 analogues against Fasciola hepatica and Echinostoma caproni.
Keiser et al., Basel, Switzerland. In Acta Trop, 2011
The aim of this study was to characterize the fasciocidal properties of 1,2,4,5-tetraoxane (MT04 and MT14) and 1,2,4-trioxane (ST16 and ST28) analogues of the fasciocidal drug candidate OZ78, a 1,2,4-trioxolane.
Follow-up of potential novel Graves' disease susceptibility loci, identified in the UK WTCCC genome-wide nonsynonymous SNP study.
Gough et al., Birmingham, United Kingdom. In Eur J Hum Genet, 2010
Although none of these loci showed evidence of association with GD in the independent data set, when combined with the original Wellcome Trust Case-Control Consortium study group, minor differences in allele frequencies (P>or=10(-3)) remained in the combined collection of 5924 subjects for four of the nsSNPs, present within HDLBP, TEKT1, JSRP1 and UTX.
Tissue expression patterns identify mouse cilia genes.
Bergman et al., Lexington, United States. In Physiol Genomics, 2008
Tekt1 is most abundantly expressed in tissues rich in highly ciliated cells, such as olfactory sensory neurons, and is predicted to be important to cilia.
Behavioral responses to odorants in drosophila require nervous system expression of the beta integrin gene myospheroid.
Grotewiel et al., Richmond, United States. In Chem Senses, 2006
Expression of mys-RNAi transgenes in the antennae, antennal lobes, and mushroom bodies via two Gal4 lines, H24 and MT14, disrupted olfactory behavior but did not alter locomotor abilities or central nervous system structure.
Human embryonic stem cell genes OCT4, NANOG, STELLAR, and GDF3 are expressed in both seminoma and breast carcinoma.
Clark et al., San Francisco, United States. In Cancer, 2005
The adult meiotic germ cell markers BOULE and TEKT1 were undetectable in seminoma, whereas the embryonic and adult germ cell markers DAZL and VASA were significantly reduced.
