This gene belongs to the VCX/Y gene family, which hasmultiple members on both X and Y chromosomes, and all are expressedexclusively in male germ cells. The X-linked members are clusteredon chromosome Xp22 and Y-linked members are two identical copies ofthe gene within a palindromic region on Yq11. The family membersshare a high degree of sequence identity, with the exception that a30-bp unit is tandemly repeated in X-linked members but occurs onlyonce in Y-linked members. The VCX gene cluster is polymorphic interms of copy number; different individuals may have a differentnumber of VCX genes. VCX/Y genes encode small and highly chargedproteins of unknown function. The presence of a putative bipartitenuclear localization signal suggests that VCX/Y members are nuclearproteins. This gene contains 8 repeats of the 30-bp unit. [providedby RefSeq].
