“For a long time, it’s been thought that only an egg can carry out the ‘reprogramming’ of a sperm in order to get it stop being a sperm and start behaving like an embryo,” molecular embryologist Tony Perry, from the university’s department of biology and biochemistry, told Digital Trends. “That was thought to be a unique property. We’ve shown that an embryo cell, which is an entirely different type of cell to an egg, can also do this sperm reprogramming. The resulting situation is the ability to produce an offspring.”
