Technical Data
Deleted in Azoospermia-Like (DAZL, DAZL1, DAZ Homolog, DAZH, DAZ-like Autosomal, DAZLA, MGC26406, SPGY-like-autosomal, SPGYLA)
DAZL is involved in mitosis and meiosis of human germ cells. The DZL gene family encodes potential RNA binding proteins that are expressed in prenatal and postnatal germ cells of diverse mammalian species. The protein encoded by this gene is localized to the nucleus and cytoplasm of fetal germ cells and to the cytoplasm of developing oocytes. In humans, DZL is expressed in primordial germ cells, adult testis, and the ovary. It plays a central role during spermatogenesis. Defects in DZL may cause infertility due to severe oligozoospermia (az) and non obstructive azoospermia. The concentrations of DZL transcripts were found to be lower in men with spermatogenic failure. Drosophila and mouse mutants that have lost DZL homologous gene function found to be azoospermic, just as with human azoospermia.
