In Mytilidae, mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) in the offspring is inherited from male and female parents. Sperm mitochondria are only incorporated into the testes. This phenomenon is called doubly uniparental inheritance (DUI). Sperm mitochondria should locate in the primordial germ cell during development to maintain DUI. However, the mechanism of sperm mitochondria localization is still unknown. To reveal the mechanism, we followed the location of sperm mitochondria in Mytilus galloprovincialis… CONTINUE READING
