Abstract

The cytoplasm is usually a DNA-free zone, but during fertilization, sperm DNA enters oocyte cytoplasm and could potentially trigger a response. Abe et al. (2017) identify NLRP14 as a germ-cell-specific negative regulator of DNA sensing that may be of particular importance during fertilization.
