Following a subtractive bioinformatics analysis of cattle placenta ESTs, a number of novel transcripts were identified. Gene-expression profiles and further bioinformatics analyses have indicated that the identified genes may be of evolutionary and physiological importance, with possible roles in placental adaptation [PMID: 16554549]. Revealed by this study was so-called Cattle Cerebrum and Skeletal Muscle-Specific Transcript 1 (CCSMST1) [PMID: 16554549], whose translation product is believed to contain a signal peptide and a single transmembrane (TM) domain [PMID: 16554549].
