gsg3, F-actin capping protein alpha-3 subunit, CPalpha3
This gene encodes an actin capping protein, one of the F-actin capping protein alpha subunit family. The encoded protein is predominantly localized to the neck region of ejaculated sperm, other immunohistochemical signals were found in the tail and postacrosomal regions. The encoded protein may also form heterodimers of alpha and beta subunits. This protein may be important in determining sperm architecture and male fertility. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from

The 6 missing protein spots in the necrozoospermic map were identified as sperm protein (human, accession No. 060904), zinc finger protein 174 (AW-1), F-actin capping protein alpha-3 subunit, testis-specific inhibitor of apoptosis, death domain receptor 3 soluble form (fragment) and peptide similar to the activator of CREM in the testis.

Five distinct altered proteins were acquired by two-dimensional (2-D) PAGE and were consequently identified as ras-related protein rab-35 (Rab-35), splice truncated isoform of transmembrane protease, serine 3 (serine TADG-12), regulator of G-protein signaling 1 (RGS1), ret finger protein-like 1 (RFPL1) and F-actin capping protein alpha-3 subunit (GSG3) by analysis of mass spectrograph.
