This gene product belongs to the tektin family ofproteins. Tektins comprise a family of filament-forming proteinsthat are coassembled with tubulins to form ciliary and flagellarmicrotubules. This gene is expressed in the testis and its proteinis localized to the flagella of the sperms, indicating that it mayplay a role in spermatogenesis.
