Summaries for CATSPERG Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for CATSPERG Gene

  • CATSPERG is a subunit of the CATSPER (see CATSPER1; MIM 606389) sperm calcium channel, which is required for sperm hyperactivated motility and male fertility (Wang et al., 2009 [PubMed 19516020]).[supplied by OMIM, Jul 2010]

GeneCards Summary for CATSPERG Gene

CATSPERG (Catsper Channel Auxiliary Subunit Gamma) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Reproduction and Reproduction.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CATSPERG Gene

  • Probably involved in sperm cell hyperactivation via its association with CATSPER1. Sperm cell hyperactivation is needed for sperm motility which is essential late in the preparation of sperm for fertilization (By similarity).
