ODF3 Outer dense fibers are filamentous structures located on the outside of the axoneme in the midpiece and principal piece of the mammalian sperm tail. May help to maintain the passive elastic structures and elastic recoil of the sperm tail. Belongs to the ODF3 family. Testis-specific. 3 alternatively spliced human isoforms have been reported. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
