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

Symbol log2 (FC) Tissue specificity Function
Piwil2 1.1907 Expressed in adult testis, specifically in spermatocytes and in spermatogonia Plays an essential role in meiotic differentiation of spermatocytes and self-renewal of spermatogonial stem cells
Rgs22 2.18187 Expressed in testis, including in Leydig cells and spermatogenic cells from the spermatogonia to spermatid stages Negative regulation of signal transduction
Shcbp1l 1.78449 Testis-specific. Expressed in pachytene spermatocytes and elongating spermatids inside the seminiferous tubules Testis-specific spindle-associated factor that plays a role in spermatogenesis
Spz1 1.08852 Expressed specifically in the testis (Sertoli and Leydig cells) and epididymis Play an important role in the regulation of cell proliferation and differentiation during spermatogenesis
Spata18 1.29567 In testis, expressed primarily in spermatids Key regulator of mitochondrial quality that mediates the repairing or degradation of unhealthy mitochondria in response to mitochondrial damage
