C elegans GLD-1 protein

a female germ cell-specific tumor suppressor gene product from Caenorhabditis elegans, encodes a protein containing a K homology RNA binding domain that is required for meiotic cell cycle progression during oogenesis in parallel with gld-2, and also affects spermatogenesis; it physically interacts with its putative mRNA targets in vitro and with FOG-2, and is expressed in the cytoplasm at high levels during meiotic prophase; similar to GRP33 & Sam68; amino acid sequence given in first source; GenBank U20535
