Summaries for ODF3 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for ODF3 Gene

  • ODF3 is a component of sperm flagella outer dense fibers, which add stiffness, elastic recoil, and protection against shearing forces during sperm movement.[supplied by OMIM, Apr 2004]

GeneCards Summary for ODF3 Gene

ODF3 (Outer Dense Fiber Of Sperm Tails 3) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with ODF3 include uterine fibroid. An important paralog of this gene is ODF3L1.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for ODF3 Gene

  • Outer dense fibers are filamentous structures located on the outside of the axoneme in the midpiece and principal piece of the mammalian sperm tail. May help to maintain the passive elastic structures and elastic recoil of the sperm tail
