This gene encodes the human homolog of mouse morc and like the mouse protein it is testis-specific. Mouse studies support a testis-specific function since only male knockout mice are infertile; infertility is the only apparent defect. These studies further support a role for this protein early in spermatogenesis possibly by affecting entry into apoptosis because testis from knockout mice show greatly increased numbers of apoptotic cells.
