FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] This gene encodes a nuclear envelope protein that appears to be involved in spermatogenesis, either directly or by influencing genes that play a more direct role in the process. This multi-exon locus is the homolog of the mouse and drosophila germ cell-less gene but the human genome also contains a single-exon locus on chromosome 5 that contains an open reading frame capable of encoding a highly-related protein.

PHENOTYPE: Homozygotes for a targeted null mutation exhibit impaired nuclear membrane integrity in liver, endocrine pancreas, and testis. Mutant males show reduced fertility with decreased chromatin condensation and morphologically abnormal sperm. [provided by MGI curators]
