Controlled gene regulation during gamete development is vital for maintaining reproductive potential. During the process of gamete development, male germ cells experience extended periods of inactive transcription despite requirements for continued growth and differentiation. Spermatogenesis therefore provides an ideal model to study the effects of post-transcriptional control on gene regulation. During spermatogenesis post-transcriptional regulation is orchestrated by abundan...
