The protein encoded by this gene is a basic protein of the sperm head cytoskeleton. This protein contains kelch repeats and a BTB/POZ domain and is necessary for normal morphology during sperm differentiation. This gene is intronless. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from NCBI)

The cytoskeletal calyx of mammalian sperm heads surrounding the basolateral part of the nucleus contains two kinds of basic proteins: Calicin, a polypeptide of approximate M(r) 60,000 as estimated from SDS-PAGE, and the group of the very basic cylicins (pI > 10.0), formerly designated as "multiple-band polypeptides."
