Calmegin

CLN, Calmegin, Clgn
Calmegin is a testis-specific endoplasmic reticulum chaperone protein. CLGN may play a role in spermatogeneisis and infertility. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from NCBI)
Papers on CLN
Coordinated transcriptional regulation of calmegin,a testis-specific molecular chaperon, by histone deacetylase and CpG methyltransferase.
GeneRIF
Kwon et al., Seoul, South Korea. In Exp Mol Med, 2005
calmegin expression is regulated by histone deacetylase and CpG methyltransferase in a coordinative way
Selective passage through the uterotubal junction of sperm from a mixed population produced by chimeras of calmegin-knockout and wild-type male mice.
GeneRIF
Okabe et al., Ōsaka, Japan. In Biol Reprod, 2004
Calmegin-knockout sperm, even when they were combined in chimeric ejaculates with wild-type sperm, remained outside of the uterotubal junction.
Sperm from the calmegin-deficient mouse have normal abilities for binding and fusion to the egg plasma membrane.
GeneRIF
Okabe et al., Suita, Japan. In Dev Biol, 2002
The sperm defect in calmegin-null animals is not at the level of sperm-EPM binding but rather may involve either sperm-ZP binding and/or sperm transit to the oviduct.
