News: Egg enzyme unpacks paternal genome

30 March 2020 by Eleanor Taylor

Researchers trying to understand what happens in the first moments after fertilisation have discovered that an enzyme previously studied in colon cancer plays a key role.

The study, published in Cell, shows that the enzyme SRPK1 is responsible for unpacking the genetic material stored in the sperm head, once the sperm has fused with the egg. This is the first step in the reorganisation and activation of the paternal genome, which is necessary for the formation of the new embryonic genome.
