From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
CatSper3, is a protein which in humans is encoded by the CATSPER3 gene. [1 ] [2 ] [3 ] CatSper3 is a member of the [4 ] cation channels of sperm family of proteins. The four proteins in this family together form a Ca-permeant 2+ ion channel specific essential for the correct function of sperm cells. [5 ]
