Previous studies suggest that memory inheritance is observed on some mice progenies with parents who have experienced fearful memory. Further investigation also shows that there are increments of piwi-RNA, which shows to have effects in enhancing the progenies’ ability to avoid harmful bacteria, in both the nervous system and the sperm cells of these parents. In this work, the relationship between the presence of harm-signaling odors and the increments piRNA’s presence in olfactory bulb and sperm cells is investigated. Meanwhile, this work also examines the effect of piRNA’s increment in parent generation on progenies’ enhancing cognitive ability in distinguishing the harm-signaling odors. The results of this study could help establish the correlation between the change in piRNA abundance in response to fearful stimuli and the inheritance of this memory.
