  • Mouse proline-rich RNA-binding protein (mPrrp) is a mouse ortholog of Xenopus Prrp, which binds to a vegetal localization element (VLE) in the 3′-untranslated region (3′-UTR) of Vg1 mRNA and is expected to be involved in the transport and/or localization of Vg1 mRNA to the vegetal cortex of oocytes. In mouse testis, mPrrp protein is abundantly expressed in the nuclei of pachytene spermatocytes and round spermatids, and shifts to the cytoplasm in elongating spermatids.
