MGI Phenotype FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] This gene encodes a member of the Argonaute family of proteins which contain PAZ and PIWI domains and play an integral role in RNA interference and short-interfering-RNA-mediated gene silencing. This gene is located on chromosome 1 in a cluster of related family members. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2017]
PHENOTYPE: Male mice homozygous for a null mutation display oligozoospermia, decreased testis weight, premature entry into meiosis and disruption of sex body formation. However both males and females are fertile. [provided by MGI curators]
