mRNA Expression by UniProt/SwissProt for MAATS1 Gene:

Tissue specificity: Isoform 1 is strongly expressed in the liver. Isoform 4 is widely expressed, but strongly expressed in all spermatogenesis-related tissues, including the testis, the epithelium of cauda and the corpus epididymis, as well as the spermatid and mature sperm. Isoform 4 is also expressed in Leydig cells. Isoform 3 is expressed in the testis.
