The protein encoded by this gene appears to play a role in the meiotic stage of spermatogenesis. The encoded protein localizes to the junction between the sperm head and body and may be involved in nuclear envelope reconstitution and nuclear migration. Mutations in this gene have been implicated in acephalic spermatozoa syndrome. [provided by RefSeq, May 2017]
