Bicaudal-C (Bic-C) is required during Drosophila melanogaster oogenesis for several processes, including anterior-posterior patterning. The gene encodes a protein with five copies of the KH domain, a motif found in a number of RNA-binding proteins. Using antibodies raised against the BIC-C protein, we show that multiple isoforms of the protein exist in ovaries and that the protein, like the RNA, accumulates in the developing oocyte early in oogenesis. BIC-C protein expressed in mammalian cells can bind RNA in vitro, and a point mutation in one of the KH domains that causes a strong Bic-C phenotype weakens this binding. In addition, oskar translation commences prior to posterior localization of oskar RNA in Bic-C- oocytes, indicating that Bic-C may regulate oskar translation during oogenesis.
