<p>The annotation score provides a heuristic measure of the annotation content of a UniProtKB entry or proteome.

Zinc transporter which regulates intracellular zinc levels (PubMed:29879108). Required for spermatogenesis in both hermaphrodites and males where it resides in an inactive form in immature sperm, spermatids, but is likely activated in response to reduced spe-4 and spe-6 function (PubMed:29879108). Upon activation, mediates the release of zinc from internal stores in spermatids into the cytoplasm (PubMed:29879108). The resulting increase in cytoplasmic zinc levels promotes spermatid activation and subsequent differentiation into mature motile sperm that are capable of fertilization (PubMed:29879108).1 Publication

<p>The checksum is a form of redundancy check that is calculated from the sequence. It is useful for tracking sequence updates.</p> <p>It should be noted that while, in theory, two different sequences could have the same checksum value, the likelihood that this would happen is extremely low.</p> <p>However UniProtKB may contain entries with identical sequences in case of multiple genes (paralogs).</p> <p>The checksum is computed as the sequence 64-bit Cyclic Redundancy Check value (CRC64) using the generator polynomial: x<sup>64</sup> + x<sup>4</sup> + x<sup>3</sup> + x + 1.
