Gene: Catsper2 (cation channel, sperm associated 2) Mus musculus
Symbol: Catsper2
Name: cation channel, sperm associated 2
Description: Predicted to have calcium activated cation channel activity; calcium channel activity; and voltage-gated ion channel activity. Involved in fertilization; flagellated sperm motility; and sperm capacitation. Localizes to the CatSper complex and sperm flagellum. Orthologous to human CATSPER2 (cation channel sperm associated 2); INTERACTS WITH carbon nanotube; Matrine; pirinixic acid.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: cation channel sperm-associated protein 2
