Capping protein

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.

Expression of a testis-specific putative actin-capping protein associated with the developing acrosome during rat spermiogenesis.
Jones et al., Cambridge, United Kingdom. In Mol Reprod Dev, 1998
The primary amino acid sequence is 90% identical to that of a previously identified testis-specific mouse protein, gsg3, both showing approximately 40% homology to the alpha subunit of somatic ACPs.
