The authors also provide compelling evidence that germline mutation rates are not constant throughout the lifetime of an organism, and that spontaneous mutation may be more likely to occur during the expansion of male primordial germ cell precursors in embryogenesis than during other developmental stages or post-pubertal spermatogenesis.
This conclusion is deduced from studies which generated embryos without genomic imprinting memories, such as cloned mice produced from primordial germ cells (PGCs) that give rise to eggs and sperm in females and males, respectively.
The gene imprinting occurs in gametogenesis and after ovum and spermzygosis will transmite to zygote and also will be kept during genesis and in primordial germ cells will be deleted before new imprint organization [5,6].
