Sperm endogenous reverse transcriptase as mediator of new genetic information.

Abstract

Mature spermatozoa spontaneously take up foreign DNA molecules which can be delivered to embryos at fertilization. Recently we discovered an endogenous reverse transcriptase (RT) activity in mouse spermatozoa which can reverse-transcribe exogenous RNA molecules into cDNA copies. Here we have sought to establish whether foreign RNA is a suitable substrate… (More)
