Sun proteins and Dpy19l2 forming LINC-like links are critical for spermiogenesis

We have read with a great interest the excellent article by Pasch et al. (2015) which describes the role of Sun4 in sperm head formation and fertility. The authors have used a Sun4 knockout (Sun4) mouse model to study the function of Sun4 in spermatogenesis. They observed that homozygous Sun4 males are infertile and present a globozoospermia-like phenotype… CONTINUE READING
