This gene belongs to the glutathione peroxidase family. It is specifically expressed in the epididymis in the mammalian male reproductive tract and is androgen-regulated. Unlike mRNAs for other characterized glutathione peroxidases this mRNA does not contain a selenocysteine (UGA) codon. Thus the encoded protein is selenium-independent and has been proposed to play a role in protecting the membranes of spermatozoa from the damaging effects of lipid peroxidation and/or preventing premature acrosome reaction. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been described for this gene. [provided by RefSeq Oct 2008]
