SOHLH1 gene

spermatogenesis and oogenesis specific basic helix-loop-helix 1

The information on this page was automatically extracted from online scientific databases.

From NCBI Gene:

This gene encodes one of testis-specific transcription factors which are essential for spermatogenesis, oogenesis and folliculogenesis. This gene is located on chromosome 9. Mutations in this gene are associated with nonobstructive azoospermia. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.

From UniProt:

Transcription factor expressed in undifferentiated spermatogonia required for spermatogonial development.

From UniProt:

Genetic variations in SOHLH1 may be associated with non-obstructive azoospermia.
