Previous GeneCards Identifiers 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.

Among its related pathways are Bacterial invasion of epithelial cells. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include protein homodimerization activity and GTP binding. An important paralog of this gene is SEPT9.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for SEPT12 Gene
Filament-forming cytoskeletal GTPase (By similarity). Involved in spermatogenesis. Involved in the morphogenesis of sperm heads and the elongation of sperm tails probably implicating the association with alpha- and beta-tubulins (PubMed:24213608). Forms a filamentous structure with SEPT7, SEPT6, SEPT2 and probably SEPT4 at the sperm annulus which is required for the structural integrity and motility of the sperm tail during postmeiotic differentiation (PubMed:25588830). May play a role in cytokinesis (Potential).
