FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] The outer dense fibers are cytoskeletal structures that surround the axoneme in the middle piece and principal piece of the sperm tail. The fibers function in maintaining the elastic structure and recoil of the sperm tail as well as in protecting the tail from shear forces during epididymal transport and ejaculation. Defects in the outer dense fibers lead to abnormal sperm morphology and infertility. The human outer dense fibers contains at least 10 major proteins and this gene encodes the main protein.

PHENOTYPE: Mice homozygous for a knock-out allele exhibit male infertility associated with asthenozoospermia, oligozoospermia, detached sperm head and absent acrosome reaction. Mice heterozygous for this allele exhibit asthenozoospermia without altered fertility. [provided by MGI curators]
