GeneCards Summary for SPATA6 Gene

SPATA6 (Spermatogenesis Associated 6) is a Protein Coding gene. An important paralog of this gene is SPATA6L.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for SPATA6 Gene

  • Required for formation of the sperm connecting piece during spermiogenesis. Sperm connecting piece is essential for linking the developing flagellum to the head during late spermiogenesis. May be involved in myosin-based microfilament transport through interaction with myosin subunits.
