Entrez Gene Summary for KLHL10 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene belongs to the kelch repeat-containing family, and contains an N-terminal BTB/POZ domain a BACK domain and six C-terminal kelch repeats. Kelch domains are thought to form a four stranded beta-sheet blade structure that can fold into a beta-propeller domain when multiple kelch repeats are found together. Mutations in this gene have been associated with oligozoospermia in some infertile males. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2016]

GeneCards Summary for KLHL10 Gene

KLHL10 (Kelch Like Family Member 10) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with KLHL10 include Spermatogenic Failure 11 and Oligospermia. An important paralog of this gene is IPP.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for KLHL10 Gene

  • May be a substrate-specific adapter of a CUL3-based E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase complex which mediates the ubiquitination and subsequent proteasomal degradation of target proteins during spermatogenesis.

  • Spermatogenic failure 11 (SPGF11) [MIM:615081]: An infertility disorder caused by spermatogenesis defects. It results in decreased sperm motility, concentration, and multiple sperm structural defects. Oligozoospermia is usually observed in SPGF11 patients. In addition to oligozoospermia, teratozoospermia and moderate asthenozoospermia is observed in some cases. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:17047026}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
