Strict maternal inheritance of mitochondrial (mt) DNA is believed to be the rule in most eukaryotic organisms because of exclusion of paternal mitochondria from the egg cytoplasm during fertilization. In honeybees, polyspermic fertilization occurs, and many spermatozoa, including their mitochondria-rich flagellum, can completely penetrate the egg, thus allowing for a possibly high paternal leakage. In order to identify paternal mtDNA in honeybee eggs, restriction fragment length polymorphisms… Expand
Paternal leakage of mitochondrial DNA in experimental crosses of populations of the potato cyst nematode Globodera pallida
TLDR
It is indicated that under appropriate conditions, paternal leakage occurs in the mtDNA of parasitic nematodes, and the hypothesis that hybrid zones facilitate paternal leakage is supported. Expand
Evidence for Paternal Leakage in Hybrid Periodical Cicadas (Hemiptera: Magicicada spp.)
TLDR
Evidence of paternal leakage in both reciprocal hybrid crosses and relative difficulty of detecting paternal mtDNA in the youngest eggs and ease of detecting leakage in older eggs and in nymphs suggests that paternal mitochondria proliferate as the eggs develop. Expand
Paternal comeback in mitochondrial DNA inheritance
  • J. Vissing
  • Medicine, Biology
  • Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences
  • 2019
TLDR
This report in PNAS reports on biparental inheritance in three families, which challenges the notion of strict maternal transmission of mtDNA to offspring. Expand

TLDR
Comparative analysis of numts of European, African, and Africanized honeybees suggests that numt evolution in A. mellifera is probably not demarked by speciation time frame but may be a continuous and dynamic process. Expand
Degradation of paternal mitochondria after fertilization: implications for heteroplasmy, assisted reproductive technologies and mtDNA inheritance.
TLDR
Research data clearly document that the paternal sperm-borne mitochondria of most mammalian species enter the ooplasm at fertilization and are specifically targeted for degradation by the resident ubiquitin system, appearing to be ubiquitinated in the sperm mitochondria. Expand
Extensive paternal mtDNA leakage in natural populations of Drosophila melanogaster
TLDR
The results indicate that evolutionary studies using mtDNA as a marker might be biased by paternal leakage in this species, and no evidence for recombination between mtDNA molecules is found, suggesting that either recombination is rare or recombinant haplotypes are counter‐selected. Expand
Paternal Leakage of Mitochondrial DNA in the Raccoon Dog (Nyctereutes Procyonoides Gray 1834)
TLDR
The results of the study demonstrated the phenomenon of “paternal leakage” in farmed raccoon dogs, which facilitated description of mitochondrial DNA inheritance in the paternal line, which confirmed the three cases of paternal mtDNA inheritance. Expand
Recombination in Mitochondrial DNA of European Mussels Mytilus
TLDR
Re rearranged mtDNA genomes found in all three European Mytilus species are described and some of the mosaic genomes do not show any gender bias, which has important implications regarding the transmission and evolution of blue mussel mitochondrial genomes. Expand
Lost in the zygote: the dilution of paternal mtDNA upon fertilization
TLDR
Estimating the mtDNA content of chinook salmon oocytes to evaluate the dilution effect operating in another vertebrate; the first such study outside a mammalian system suggests that paternal inheritance of mtDNA per offspring will be much less likely in this system than in mammals. Expand
Evidence of animal mtDNA recombination between divergent populations of the potato cyst nematode Globodera pallida
TLDR
No contemporary recombination between the parental populations was detected in the progeny of the experimental crosses of G. pallida, which supports current arguments that mtDNA recombination events are rare. Expand

Incomplete maternal transmission of mitochondrial DNA in Drosophila.
TLDR
The possibility of incomplete maternal transmission of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) in Drosophila, previously suggested by the presence of heteroplasmy, was examined by intra- and interspecific backcrosses of Dosophila simulans and its closest relative, Drosophile mauritiana, and showed clear evidence for paternal leakage of mtDNA. Expand
Direct evidence for extensive paternal mitochondrial DNA inheritance in the marine mussel Mytilus
TLDR
Results from pair-matings involving two species of mussels show extensive contribution of paternal mtDNA, amounting to several orders of magnitude higher than that inferred for Drosophila or mice, was observed in both intra-and interspecific crosses. Expand
Maternal and cytoplasmic inheritance of mitochondrial DNA in Xenopus.
TLDR
These experiments show that mtDNA is inherited cytoplasmically and maternally in Xenopus, and concludes that the nucleus does not contain a “master copy” of the mitochondrial sequences. Expand
Critical experimental test of the possibility of "paternal leakage" of mitochondrial DNA.
TLDR
Analyzing the 45- and 91-generation backcross progeny of such matings between two species of lepidopteran insects using autoradiographic techniques failed to detect any paternal mtDNA and sets an upper limit of paternal leakage at about 1 molecule per 25,000 per generation in this system. Expand
Chloroplast and mitochondrial DNA are paternally inherited in Sequoia sempervirens D. Don Endl.
TLDR
It is concluded that mitochondrial DNA is paternally inherited in coast redwood and paternal inheritance of mitochondrial DNA in sexual crosses of a multicellular eukaryotic organism has not been previously reported. Expand
Evidence from mitochondrial DNA that African honey bees spread as continuous maternal lineages
TLDR
The migrating force of the African honey bee in the American tropics consists of continuous African maternal lineages spreading as swarms, and the mating of African drones to European queens seems to contribute little to African bee migration. Expand
Further observation of paternal transmission of Drosophila mitochondrial DNA by PCR selective amplification method.
TLDR
The present result indicates small but frequent inheritance of sperm mtDNA in Drosophila, which is supportive to the previous finding. Expand

TLDR
The degree of fragment pattern similarity revealed that there is only a small level of mtDNA variation between the three races tested, in line with previous investigations of enzyme polymorphisms. Expand
DIPLOID TISSUE DERIVED FROM ACCESSORY SPERM IN THE HONEY BEE.
TLDR
Bees with both male and female body parts appear occasionally among the normal bees of a colony and it was demonstrated that they originate through the cleavage of accessory sperm nuclei along with zygotic cleavage in the cytoplasm of fertilized eggs. Expand

TLDR
Sperm mitochondria of sperm seem to disintegrate by a process of self-autolysis suggesting that the paternal mitochondrion affects no prolonged influence on embryogenesis. Expand
