CATSPER1 (human)

CATSPER1 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. Defects in CATSPER1 are the cause of spermatogenic failure type 7 (SPGF7). An infertility disorder characterized by non-motile sperm or sperm motility below the normal threshold, low sperm count, increased abnormally structured spermatozoa, and reduced semen volume. Belongs to the cation channel sperm-associated (TC 1.A.1.19) family. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
