Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits phosphatidylinositol phospholipase C activity. Involved in calcium ion transport and positive regulation of cytosolic calcium ion concentration involved in egg activation. Localizes to the nucleolus; nucleoplasm; and pronucleus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in spermatogenic failure 17. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; heart; integumental system; limb; and nervous system. Orthologous to human PLCZ1 (phospholipase C zeta 1).
