Summaries for SMCP Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for SMCP Gene

  • Sperm mitochondria differ in morphology and subcellular localization from those of somatic cells. They are elongated, flattened, and arranged circumferentially to form a helical coiled sheath in the midpiece of the sperm flagellum. The protein encoded by this gene localizes to the capsule associated with the mitochondrial outer membranes and is thought to function in the organization and stabilization of the helical structure of the sperm's mitochondrial sheath. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for SMCP Gene

SMCP (Sperm Mitochondria-Associated Cysteine-Rich Protein) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with SMCP include hard palate cancer and middle ear disease.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for SMCP Gene

  • Involved in sperm motility. Its absence is associated with genetic background dependent male infertility. Infertility may be due to reduced sperm motility in the female reproductive tract and inability to penetrate the oocyte zona pellucida (By similarity).
