Sperm-Mediated Gene Transfer
Spermatozoa are highly specialized cells which play a central role in the process of fertilization, carrying the male genome into the oocyte. Although widely studied, the biological process of fertilization remains still obscure in many aspects, and the molecular steps leading to the formation of the diploid zygote after the interaction of the gametes are not yet entirely clear.
