Summaries for SEPT12 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for SEPT12 Gene

  • This gene encodes a guanine-nucleotide binding protein and member of the septin family of cytoskeletal GTPases. Septins play important roles in cytokinesis, exocytosis, embryonic development, and membrane dynamics. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2011]

  • Spermatogenic failure 10 (SPGF10) [MIM:614822]: An infertility disorder caused by spermatogenesis defects. It results in decreased sperm motility, concentration, and multiple sperm structural defects. The most prominent feature is a defective sperm annulus, a ring structure that demarcates the midpiece and the principal piece of the sperm tail. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:22275165}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
