Dose-dependent control of proliferation and sperm specification by FOG-1/CPEB.


RNA-binding proteins control germline development in metazoans. This work focuses on control of the C. elegans germline by two RNA-binding proteins: FOG-1, a CPEB homolog; and FBF, a PUF family member. Previous studies have shown that FOG-1 specifies the sperm fate and that FBF promotes proliferation. Here, we report that FOG-1 also promotes proliferation… (More)
