DAZL RNA-binding protein, which is essential for gametogenesis in both males and females. Plays a central role during spermatogenesis. Acts by binding to the 3'-UTR of mRNA, specifically recognizing GUU triplets, and thereby regulating the translation of key transcripts. Belongs to the RRM DAZ family. Testis specific. 2 alternatively spliced human isoforms have been reported. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
