The CCR4-associated protein CAF1 has been demonstrated to play several roles in the control of transcription and of mRNA decay. To gain further insight into its physiological function, we generated CAF1-deficient mice. They are viable, healthy, and normal in appearance; however, mCAF1(-/-) male mice are sterile. The crossing of mCAF1(+/-) mice gave a Mendelian ratio of mCAF1(+/+), mCAF1(+/-), and mCAF1(-/-) pups, indicating that haploid mCAF1-deficient germ cells differentiate normally. The… CONTINUE READING
