From NCBI Gene:

This gene encodes a testis-specific protein that belongs to the tetratricopeptide repeat-like superfamily. The encoded protein localizes to the Golgi apparatus and may play a role in spermatogenesis. [provided by RefSeq, May 2010]

From UniProt:

Involved in the formation of sperm acrosome, which implicated its potential role in spermatogenesis and sperm-egg fusion.

From NCBI Gene:

  • Globozoospermia

From UniProt:

Spermatogenic failure 6 (SPGF6): An infertility disorder caused by spermatogenesis defects. The most prominent feature is the malformation of the acrosome, which can be totally absent in most severe cases. Additional features are an abnormal nuclear shape and abnormal arrangement of the mitochondria of the spermatozoon. [MIM:102530]
