In this study, the generational transfer and multigenerational effect of gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) on Caenorhabditis elegans were investigated by observing the parental generation (F0) to the fourth offspring generation (F4) using food-exposure approaches. There were no significant changes on survival rate under all generation by AuNPs maternal exposure to the F0 generation. However, reproduction rate was clearly affected in the F2 generation, but then gradually recovered in the F3 and F4 generations. The abnormalities of reproductive system showed close relationship with reproduction rates. These phenomenons may be due to the germ-line transfer. The germ-line of F0 generation such as gonad and embryo germ cell may be affected during their development by maternal exposure of AuNPs, and this generation caused trans-generation effect on future generation. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first study to provide the evidence of trans-generational effects by maternal exposure of nanoparticles to the next generations.
