Meiosis arrest female 1 (MARF1) has nuage-like function in mammalian oocytes.


Orderly regulation of meiosis and protection of germline genomic integrity from transposable elements are essential for male and female gamete development. In the male germline, these processes are ensured by proteins associated with cytoplasmic nuage, but morphologically similar germ granules or nuage have not been identified in mammalian female germ cells… (More)
