Msj-1 gene encodes a DnaJ protein highly expressed in spermatids and spermatozoa of both rodents and amphibians. We isolated and characterized the msj-1 gene in mice. A bioinformatic approach was then used to predict the putative promoter region, chromosomal localization, and its presence in the human genome. The analysis of msj-1 genomic sequence revealed that msj-1 is an intronless gene. Interestingly, two regions (A and B, separated by 10,682 bp) on human chromosome 2 having respectively 78% and 77% nucleotide identity with the murine msj-1 coding region were identified.

Abstract

Msj-1 gene encodes a DnaJ protein highly expressed in spermatids and spermatozoa of both rodents and amphibians. We isolated and characterized the msj-1 gene in mice. A bioinformatic approach was then used to predict the putative promoter region, chromosomal localization, and its presence in the human genome. The analysis of msj-1 genomic sequence revealed that msj-1 is an intronless gene. Interestingly, two regions (A and B, separated by 10,682 bp) on human chromosome 2 having respectively 78% and 77% nucleotide identity with the murine msj-1 coding region were identified. This suggests the existence of an msj-1-like gene also in humans
