Term Detail
MP term:abnormal sperm flagellum morphology
Synonym: abnormal sperm flagella
Synonym: abnormal sperm tail
MP id: MP:0008892
Definition: any structural anomaly of the whiplike posterior filiform portion of the spermatozoon composed of a number of cytoskeletal elements whose proper assembly is critical for sperm motility; the mammalian flagellum is structurally divided into four major parts: the connecting piece, the midpiece, the principal piece, and the end piece
Number of paths to term: 4

is-adenotes an 'is-a' relationship
