KIFC1 is essential for normal spermatogenesis and its depletion results in early germ cell apoptosis in the Kuruma shrimp, Penaeus (Marsupenaeus) japonicus

Figure 1. Full-length cDNA of the kifc1 from the testis of P. japonicus. The corresponding amino acid sequence is shown below the nucleotide sequence. The full-length cDNA of this gene consists of a 136 bp 5’ untranslated region, a 297 bp 3’ untranslated region and a 2217 bp open reading frame which encodes 738 amino acids.
