Gene RIF (5)

26232607 Studies indicate that partial RNA-binding proteins DAZ1/2 deletion was associated wih male infertility, but partial RNA-binding proteins DAZ3/4 deletion was not associated with male infertility.
19223287 All four DAZ genes are expressed in the human testis, and their products are highly polymorphic among men
17416365 AZFc subdeletions do not seem to cause severe impairment of spermatogenesis in Chilean men.
16963411 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
14639527 a common variant of the human Y chromosome lacks the DAZ3/DAZ4 and BPY2.2/BPY2.3 doublets in distal AZFc and thus these genes cannot be required for male fertility
