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


Figure 2. The prediction of major structural features in P. japonicus KIFC1. (A) Three structural domains of KIFC1 were shown in this figure. The motor domain labeled in red contains the conserved head which is from aa 377 to 738. The stalk region, also named coiled-coil domain, extends from aa 192 to 376 that labels in blue. The divergent tail domain labeled in yellow is from aa 1 to 191. (B) The putative 3-D structure of KIFC1 protein. (C) Tail domain (yellow part). (D) Coiled-coil domain (blue part). (E) Motor domain (red part).
