Description
CATSPER1 (cation channel, sperm associated 1) is one of four related proteins that combine to form Ca2+-permeant ion channels associated with normal sperm cell function. These channels are localized primarily to the tail's principal piece, not the head or midpiece.

Knockouts of the Catsper1 gene produce mice that show no gross phenotype other than male-specific infertility due to a lack of sperm hyperactivation. Homozygous females are fertile. Ca2+ current is abolished in the sperm of mutant mice directly measured by whole cell path clamp. The gene is proposed as an excellent target for non-hormonal contraceptives for both men and women.

Development
The second exon, encoding the first putative transmembrane domain, was replaced with an IRES-LacZ sequence followed by a neomycin resistance gene in 129S4/SvJae-derived J1 embryonic stem (ES) cells. Resultant mice were backcrossed to C57BL/6J for more than 17 generations by the donating laboratory.

The following phenotype information is associated with a similar, but not exact match to this JAX® Mice strain.

Catsper1tm1Clph/Catsper1tm1Clph

        involves: 129S4/SvJae * C57BL/6J
  • reproductive system phenotype
  • asthenozoospermia
    • mutant sperm are sluggish, exhibit less directed movements, and lack the vigorous beating and bending in the tail region noted in wild-type sperm   (MGI Ref ID J:72046)
    • major motility parameters, including path velocity, progressive velocity, and track speed, are significantly impaired   (MGI Ref ID J:72046)
  • impaired acrosome reaction
    • in vitro, mutant sperm are unable to penetrate the zona pellucida   (MGI Ref ID J:72046)
    • neither cAMP nor cGMP is shown to elicit a significant Ca2+ influx in fully differentiated mutant sperm   (MGI Ref ID J:72046)
    • in contrast, progesterone, which is used as a positive control for Ca2+ responses, initiates a large Ca2+ increase in both mutant and wild-type sperm   (MGI Ref ID J:72046)
  • impaired fertilization
    • in vitro, mutant sperm are unable to fertilize eggs with an intact zona pellucida   (MGI Ref ID J:72046)
    • in contrast, mutant sperm are able to fertilize eggs in which the zona pellucida has been removed   (MGI Ref ID J:72046)
  • male infertility
    • male homozygotes exhibit normal mounting behavior but are sterile   (MGI Ref ID J:72046)
    • however, mutant males display no significant differences in body and testis weights, spermatogenesis, sperm morphology or sperm counts relative to wild-type littermates   (MGI Ref ID J:72046)
  • homeostasis/metabolism phenotype
  • abnormal calcium ion homeostasis
    • the cyclic-AMP-induced Ca2+ entry in the sperm tail is abolished in mutant sperm   (MGI Ref ID J:72046)

Catsper1tm1Clph/Catsper1tm1Clph

        involves: 129S4/SvJae
  • reproductive system phenotype
  • abnormal sperm physiology
    • calcium-selective pH sensitive sperm current (ICatSper) is not detectable   (MGI Ref ID J:116406)
    • abnormal sperm motility
      • percent motility of mutant sperm decreases more rapidly than wild-type   (MGI Ref ID J:116406)
      • asthenozoospermia
        • after 90 minutes in viscous conditions, sperm lose their motility compared to wild-type which move more vigorously than initially   (MGI Ref ID J:116406)

The Jackson Laboratory's Genotype Promise

The Jackson Laboratory has rigorous genetic quality control and mutant gene genotyping programs to ensure the genetic background of JAX® Mice strains as well as the genotypes of strains with identified molecular mutations. JAX® Mice strains are only made available to researchers after meeting our standards. However, the phenotype of each strain may not be fully characterized and/or captured in the strain data sheets. Therefore, we cannot guarantee a strain's phenotype will meet all expectations. To ensure that JAX® Mice will meet the needs of individual research projects or when requesting a strain that is new to your research, we suggest ordering and performing tests on a small number of mice to determine suitability for your particular project.
