(Gene ID: 13) 68

Googling “1368″ in order to doublecheck more details about when Zhu YuanZang became the first ruling Emperor Hong Wu of the Ming Dynasty(1368 – 1644 AD) about 1,000 years ago (10+3) in China, I came across Gene 1368 and the NCBI.

NCBI (National Center for Biotechnology Information) is a center for research at a molecular level. (10-8) Below is an example of a gene that is being studied at very small powers of 10.

CPM carboxypeptidase M [ Homo sapiens ]
Gene ID: 1368

“The protein encoded by this gene is a membrane-bound arginine/lysine carboxypeptidase. Its expression is associated with monocyte to macrophage differentiation. This encoded protein contains hydrophobic regions at the amino and carboxy termini and has 6 potential asparagine-linked glycosylation sites. The active site residues of carboxypeptidases A and B are conserved in this protein. Three alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding the same protein have been described for this gene. [provided by RefSeq]“
