BOLL Probable RNA-binding protein, which may be required during spermatogenesis. May act by binding to the 3'-UTR of mRNAs and regulating their translation. Belongs to the RRM DAZ family. Testis specific. Not expressed in early embryos, primordial germ cells and spermatogonial cells. First expressed in the cytoplasm of spermatocytes and then persists through meiosis. 5 alternatively spliced human isoforms have been reported. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
