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).

Genetic engineering: Unknown
Have human generated variants been created, e.g. through genetic engineering and gene editing
