UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for TSSK1B Gene
Testis-specific serine/threonine-protein kinase required during spermatid development. Phosphorylates Ser-288 of TSKS. Involved in the late stages of spermatogenesis, during the reconstruction of the cytoplasm. During spermatogenesis, required for the transformation of a ring-shaped structure around the base of the flagellum originating from the chromatoid body.
