25994644 analysis demonstrated that SNP260 of DAZL did not contribute to oligo/azoospermia while SNP386 was correlated to male infertility
25323654 Neither the A260G nor the A386G polymorphism of DAZL appeared to be involved in male infertility.
24717865 analysis of T12A and T54A polymorphisms role in the development of male infertility (Meta-Analysis)
24459810 Amniotic fluid-derived stem cells (AFSc) seem to express Nodal, Nanog and DAZL and it speculated that the regulation of self-renewal in AFSc could be similar as in human embryonic stem cells.
24086306 demonstrate that Boll is also transiently expressed during oogenesis in the fetal mouse ovary, but is simultaneously co-expressed within the same germ cells as Dazl
24015185 Abnormal DNA methylation of the DAZL promoter might represent an epigenetic marker of male infertility.
23678708 The A260G and A386G polymorphisms of the DAZL gene are not correlated with astheno-teratozoospermia-induced male infertility in the Han Chinese population.
22752612 study identified the core promoter of the DAZL gene; also provided preliminary evidence for the role of a novel SNP of the DAZL gene promoter in spermatogenic failure
22329245 results showed no significant differences in the frequency of DAZL AG (P = 0.58) and MTHFR CT (P = 0.44) between oligozoospermic infertile men and controls
22162380 overexpression of VASA and or DAZL, in both embryonic and induced pluripotent stem cells promoted differentiation into primordial germ cells, and maturation and progression through meiosis was enhanced.
