Research on spermatozoal RNA has made considerable progress since the original reports on its presence appeared in the late 1950s and early 1960s. Through the use of stringent procedures aimed at eliminating contamination artefacts, we now appreciate that a complex cohort of mRNAs persists in the ejaculate cell but that 80S (cytoplasmic) ribosomal complexes are not present in sufficient quantities to support cytoplasmic mRNA translation. Despite this, under certain conditions, at least some… CONTINUE READING
