Term Information [More information on sperm fibrous sheath]

Accession
GO:0035686
Name
sperm fibrous sheath
Ontology
cellular_component
Synonyms
flagellar fibrous sheath, flagellum fibrous sheath
Definition
A cytoskeletal structure surrounding the axoneme and outer dense fibers of the sperm flagellum. Consists of two longitudinal columns connected by closely arrayed semicircular ribs that assemble from distal to proximal throughout spermiogenesis. The fibrous sheath probably influences the degree of flexibility, plane of flagellar motion, and the shape of the flagellar beat. Source: GOC:krc, PMID:20731842, GOC:BHF, GOC:cilia, PMID:3282552
