PURPOSE: To verify the expression of mouse homologue of glucosamine-6-phosphate deaminase (GNPDA) in mouse epididymis. MATERIALS AND METHODS: GNPDA expression was examined in mouse epididymis using the polyclonal antibody raised against a synthetic oligopeptide of N-terminus of mouse homologue of GNPDA. RESULTS: In Western blot, immunoreactive band of Mr. 33 kDa was detected in the cauda epididymal extracts. In immunostaining, positive signal was found in the cytoplasm and stereocillia of epithelial cells of cauda epididymal tubule, and interstitial cells of adult epididymis. CONCLUSION: Expression of GNPDA in epididymis suggests that it possibly involved in absorption and intracellular digestion of luminal contents, and the remodeling of epithelia in mouse epididymis.
