SH3 domain binding protein 5 like (xSH3BP5L) gene encodes a protein that is a new found member of SH3 domain binding protein family which has been implicated at multiple levels of biological functions. Here, we have characterized Xenopus SH3 domain binding protein 5 like (xSH3BP5L) gene in the development of Xenopus laevis. Transcripts of xSH3BP5L were detected at all stages of development and in numerous adult tissues. Whole-mount in situ hybridization demonstrated that xSH3BP5L is expressed at the animal pole from stage-2 onward. Interestingly, translational inhibition of xSH3BP5L using antisense morpholino oligonucleotides (MOs) and overexpression of xSH3BP5L in Xenopus embryos resulted in failed or delayed blastopore closure. Taken together, these data suggested that xSH3BP5L is required for normal embryogenesis of blastopore closure in X. laevis.
