MGI Phenotype FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] PIWIL4 belongs to the Argonaute family of proteins, which function in development and maintenance of germline stem cells (Sasaki et al., 2003 [PubMed 12906857]).[supplied by OMIM, Mar 2008]
PHENOTYPE: Mice homozygous for a null allele exhibit male specific-infertility with a progressive loss of male germ cells, reduced testis size, abnormal male meiosis and increased apoptosis of spermatocytes in seminiferous tubules. [provided by MGI curators]
