Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have serine-type endopeptidase inhibitor activity. Involved in several processes, including gamete generation; negative regulation of serine-type endopeptidase activity; and seminiferous tubule development. Localizes to the acrosomal vesicle and neuron projection. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in male infertility. Orthologous to human SPINK2 (serine peptidase inhibitor, Kazal type 2).
