Previous HGNC Symbols for PRSS42P Gene
This gene encodes a member of a cluster of testis-specific serine proteases. The orthologous mouse gene is expressed during meiosis in pachytene spermatocytes and is required for germ cell survival. This human locus is represented as a pseudogene because it contains an early stop codon that disrupts the trypsin domain, compared to the mouse ortholog. [provided by RefSeq, Jan 2019]
