Paternal effects in a wild-type zebrafish implicate a role of sperm-derived small RNAs

James Ord, Paul Heath, Alireza Fazeli & Penelope Watt
While the importance of maternal effects has long been appreciated, a growing body of evidence now points to the paternal environment having an important influence on offspring phenotype. Indeed, research on rodent models suggests that paternal stress leaves an imprint on the behaviour and physiology of offspring via non-genetic information carried in the spermatozoa, however fish have been understudied with regard to these sperm-mediated effects. Here we investigated whether the zebrafish was subject to heritable...
