Protein Information
Function Essential sperm cell-surface protein required for fertilization by acting as a ligand for IZUMO1R/JUNO receptor on egg. The IZUMO1:IZUMO1R/JUNO interaction is a necessary adhesion event between sperm and egg that is required for fertilization but is not sufficient for cell fusion. The ligand-receptor interaction probably does not act as a membrane 'fusogen'.
Cellular Location Cell membrane {ECO:0000250|UniProtKB:Q9D9J7}; Single-pass type I membrane protein {ECO:0000250|UniProtKB:Q9D9J7}
Tissue Location Sperm-specific (at protein level). Detectable on sperm surface only after the acrosome reaction

The sperm-specific protein Izumo, named for a Japaneseshrine dedicated to marriage, is essential for sperm-egg plasmamembrane binding and fusion (Inoue et al., 2005 [PubMed15759005]).
