Table 7 The testis-specific gene was highly expressed in the epididymis

From: Transcriptomic analysis of reproductive damage in the epididymis of male Kunming mice induced by chronic infection of Toxoplasma gondii PRU strain

Symbollog2 (FC)Tissue specificityFunction
Piwil21.1907Expressed in adult testis, specifically in spermatocytes and in spermatogoniaPlays an essential role in meiotic differentiation of spermatocytes and self-renewal of spermatogonial stem cells
Rgs222.18187Expressed in testis, including in Leydig cells and spermatogenic cells from the spermatogonia to spermatid stagesNegative regulation of signal transduction
Shcbp1l1.78449Testis-specific. Expressed in pachytene spermatocytes and elongating spermatids inside the seminiferous tubulesTestis-specific spindle-associated factor that plays a role in spermatogenesis
Spz11.08852Expressed specifically in the testis (Sertoli and Leydig cells) and epididymisPlay an important role in the regulation of cell proliferation and differentiation during spermatogenesis
Spata181.29567In testis, expressed primarily in spermatidsKey regulator of mitochondrial quality that mediates the repairing or degradation of unhealthy mitochondria in response to mitochondrial damage
