Cloning and characterization of rat spermatid protein SSP411: A thioredoxin-like protein
In an attempt to identify new sperm-specific genes that are involved in sperm maturation, fertilization, and embryo development, such as the mammalian ortholog of the sperm-supplied protein gene, spe-11, in Caenorhabditis elegans, we cloned and characterized a new spermatid-specific protein gene, ssp411, from adult rat testes. The ssp411 cDNA shared
