  • Function
    Voltage-gated calcium channel that plays a central role in calcium-dependent physiological responses essential for successful fertilization, such as sperm hyperactivation, acrosome reaction and chemotaxis towards the oocyte. Activated by extracellular progesterone and prostaglandins following the sequence: progesterone > PGF1-alpha = PGE1 > PGA1 > PGE2 >> PGD2. The primary effect of progesterone activation is to shift voltage dependence towards more physiological, negative membrane potentials; it is not mediated by metabotropic receptors and second messengers. Sperm capacitation enhances the effect of progesterone by providing additional negative shift. Also activated by the elevation of intracellular pH.
  • Tissue specificity
    Testis-specific.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the cation channel sperm-associated (TC 1.A.1.19) family.
  • Cellular localization
    Cell projection > cilium > flagellum membrane. Specifically located in the principal piece of sperm tail.
  • Information by UniProt
