Riddled With Errors
Mutations mount in elderly sperm
Abstract: As a factory ages and parts deteriorate, new production errors can appear, resulting in damaged goods. The same might be true of men's testicles. A new study finds that old mice have more--and different--DNA damage in their sperm than do younger animals. The results might help clarify the roots of disorders that are linked to paternal age.
