|Other Names||Testis-expressed sequence 40 protein, TEX40, C11orf20|
|Format||Synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml DI water for a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Auxiliary component of the CatSper complex, a complex involved in sperm cell hyperactivation. Sperm cell hyperactivation is needed for sperm motility which is essential late in the preparation of sperm for fertilization. Required for a distribution of the CatSper complex in linear quadrilateral nanodomains along the flagellum, maximizing fertilization inside the mammalian female reproductive tract.|
|Cellular Location||Cell projection, cilium, flagellum membrane; Peripheral membrane protein. Note=Specifically located in the principal piece of sperm tail (PubMed:28226241). Although it does not contain a transmembrane domain, localizes with the CatSper complex at the flagellum membrane (PubMed:28226241)|
