PBS Program Name:
ARC 17/18 Discovery
Grant Program:
Discovery Projects
Grant Activity:
Extracellular vesicles in the inheritance of acquired traits
Purpose:
This project aims to examine the role of extracellular vesicles (EV) in the transfer of regulatory RNA from somatic cells to germline cells. This project suggests that somatic EVs from the epididymis transfer regulatory RNA to the sperm, and that this RNA exerts its effects in the early embryo of the next generation. This will provide significant benefits, such as a new molecular understanding of heredity that could be key to thriving in a changing environment.
