February 2009 highlights from Biology of Reproduction
Date:1/20/2009

fspring from the elderly males exhibit abnormalities not only in several behavioral traits, but also in reproductive fitness and longevity. The early death of offspring sired by old mice was heralded by rapid weight loss. Moreover, mating the offspring derived from aged males resulted in the production of pups exhibiting decreased weights at weaning when compared with pups from the offspring of younger males: an apparent transgenerational effect. The defects causing the abnormalities in offspring are unknown and should be the objective of intriguing studies in the future.
