FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] This gene encodes a member of the SLC26 gene family of anion transporters. Family members are well conserved in gene structure and protein length yet have markedly different tissue expression patterns. The expression of this gene appears to be restricted to spermatocytes. Alternatively spliced transcript variants that encode different isoforms have been described. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2010]
PHENOTYPE: Mice homozygous for a targeted allele exhibit male sterility associated with sperm immotility, abnormal flagella and reduced acrosomal reaction. [provided by MGI curators]
