OMIA:002632-9541 : Asthenoteratozoospermia, SSX1-related in Macaca fascicularis (crab-eating macaque)
In other species: tree shrews
Categories: Reproductive system phene
Possibly relevant human trait(s) and/or gene(s) (MIM number): 312820 (gene)
Links to MONDO diseases: No links.
Mendelian trait/disorder: unknown
Considered a defect: yes
Species-specific description: Liu et al. (2023) "used a non-human primate model and tree shrews ... to knock down (KD) Ssx1 expression in the testes. Consistent with the phenotype observed in humans, both Ssx1-KD models exhibited a reduced sperm motility and abnormal sperm morphology."
This phene includes references to studies involving gene edited or genetically modified organisms (GMO).
Have human generated variants been created, e.g. through genetic engineering and gene editing
