The fem-3 sex-determining gene is repressed post-
transcriptionally via a regulatory element in its 3
untranslated region (UTR) to achieve the switch from
spermatogenesis to oogenesis in the Caenorhabditis
elegans hermaphrodite germ line. In this paper, we
investigate the fem-3 3 UTR control in somatic tissues
