GSG1-like (IPR012478)

Short name: GSG-1

Family relationships

None.

Description

This entry represents GSG1 (germ cell-specific gene 1 protein), a protein specifically expressed in testicular germ cells [PMID: 9337410]. It has been shown to target testis-specific poly(A) polymerase to the endoplasmic reticulum through protein-protein interactions [PMID: 18325338]. Overexpression of the human homologue may be involved in tumourigenesis of human testicular germ cell tumours [PMID: 9337410].
