Mature human spermatozoa do not transcribe novel RNA.

Abstract

Mature spermatozoa contain subsets of mRNA that have been found in human testes before. Based on this finding it was hypothesized that the mRNAs of spermatozoa are transcribed during spermatogenesis. However, up to now there is no proof of the transcriptional inactivity of human sperm. To address this issue we performed in vitro labelling experiments with… (More)
