Day 129 has 99 protein-coding genes (browser view) including SAYSD1 (SAYSVFN Motif Domain Containing 1).

SAYSD1 is an example of an almost completely uncharacterized gene. Its name comes from a protein motif that it contains, the SATSv/iFN motif, but this motif offers no clue to its function. A similar-looking gene exists in organisms as distant as fish.
