SSTK Required for sperm production and function. Plays a role in DNA condensation during postmeiotic chromatin remodeling. Belongs to the protein kinase superfamily. CAMK Ser/Thr protein kinase family. Highly expressed in testis. Expressed at lower levels in colon, small intestine, ovary, prostate, thymus, spleen and peripheral blood leukocytes.
