Meiosis specific protein Spo22/ZIP4/TEX11 (IPR013940)

Short name: Spo22/ZIP4/TEX11

Overlapping homologous superfamilies


Family relationships


This entry includes a group of meiosis specific proteins, including Spo22 from budding yeasts, ZIP4 from plants and TEX11 from mammals. They play an important role in normal crossover formation and meiotic chromosome segregation [PMID: 18348867, PMID: 16740482, PMID: 18369460]. Impairment of these functions results in meiosis I (MI) segregation defect [PMID: 18369460].
