RNA-binding protein, which is essential for gametogenesis. Plays a central role during spermatogenesis. May act by binding to the 3'-UTR of mRNA and thereby regulating the translation of key transcripts.
Belongs to the RRM DAZ family. Contains 1 DAZ-like domain. Contains 1 RRM (RNA recognition motif) domain.
The DAZ-like domain mediates the interaction with DAZAP1 and DAZAP2.
Cytoplasm. Nucleus. Predominantly cytoplasmic (By similarity). Nuclear in spermatogonia until near the end of the meiotic prophase and cytoplasmic localization from then onward.
