Gene: SPANXN4 (SPANX family member N4) Homo sapiens
Symbol: SPANXN4
Name: SPANX family member N4
Description: This gene represents one of several duplicated family members that are located on the X chromosome. This gene family encodes proteins that play a role in spermiogenesis. These proteins represent a specific subgroup of cancer/testis-associated antigens, and they may be candidates for tumor vaccines. This family member belongs to a subgroup of related genes that are present in all primates and rats and mice, and thus, it represents one of the ancestral family members.

Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: cancer/testis antigen family 11, member 9; CT11.9; nuclear-associated protein SPAN-Xn4; SPANX family, member N4; SPANX-N4; sperm protein associated with the nucleus on the X chromosome N4
