The drosophila tudor protein is encoded by a 'posterior group' gene, which when mutated disrupt normal abdominal segmentation and pole cell formation. Another drosophila gene, homeless, is required for RNA localization during oogenesis. The tudor protein contains multiple repeats of a domain which is also found in homeless [PUBMED:9048482].
