Dyneins are microtubule-associated motor protein complexes composed of several heavy, light, and intermediate chains. DNAH17 is a heavy chain associated with axonemal dynein (Milisav and Affara, 1998 [PubMed 9545504]).[supplied by OMIM, Mar 2008]
GeneCards Summary for DNAH17 Gene
DNAH17 (Dynein Axonemal Heavy Chain 17) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with DNAH17 include Spermatogenic Failure 39 and Non-Syndromic Male Infertility Due To Sperm Motility Disorder. Among its related pathways are Parkinson disease. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include ATPase activity and microtubule motor activity. An important paralog of this gene is DNAH9.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for DNAH17 Gene
Force generating protein component of the outer dynein arms (ODAs) in the sperm flagellum. Produces force towards the minus ends of microtubules. Dynein has ATPase activity; the force-producing power stroke is thought to occur on release of ADP (Probable). Plays a major role in sperm motility, implicated in sperm flagellar assembly and beating (PubMed:31178125).
