Application of frozen-thawed semen is an important tool for improving the vivo fertility, but the process of freezing and thawing causes significant damage to spermatozoa.
This article was published in the following journal.

Boar semen cannot be immediately cryopreserved, it need be hold at 17 °C prior to cryopreservation, holding time has been used to improve cryopreserved boar semen, since holding time allows a prolo...
Rotenone, a classic mitochondrial complex I inhibitor, leads to dopaminergic neuronal death resulting in a Parkinson's-like-disease. Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) has shown neuroprotective effects in oth...
In non-thermoregulating and sessile organisms, such as the imperiled freshwater mussels (Bivalvia: Unionida), thermal sensitivity of mitochondria is a key factor for survival to global warming. Given ...
The eukaryotic FF-ATP synthase/hydrolase activity is coupled to H translocation through the inner mitochondrial membrane. According to a recent model, two asymmetric H half-channels in the a subunit t...
Cryopreservation of sperms is common therapy but with multiple damages to sperms. The aim of this study was to assess the effect of insulin as a prosurvival factor on the most important functional par...
Our aims is to document the possible effect of cryo- preservation at the meiotic spindle and mitochondrial levels.
The aim of the study is to determine prognostic value of plasma mitochondrial DNA and cytochrome C after cardiac arrest. The study will be conducted in three parts: 1. Determine ...
To observe the changes of plasma mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) levels in patients with ARDS, and to explore its clinical significance.
The IRB protocol is being designed to offer testicular tissue cryopreservation to male pediatric patients (0-17 years of age) with fertility threatening medical diagnoses or facing surgery...
The IRB protocol is being designed to offer ovarian tissue cryopreservation to female pediatric patients (birth-17 years of age) with fertility threatening medical diagnoses or facing surg...
Preservation of cells, tissues, organs, or embryos by freezing. In histological preparations, cryopreservation or cryofixation is used to maintain the existing form, structure, and chemical composition of all the constituent elements of the specimens.
A ubiquitous membrane transport protein found in the plasma membrane of diverse cell types and tissues, and in nuclear, mitochondrial, and Golgi membranes. It is the major integral transmembrane protein of the erythrocyte plasma membrane, comprising 25% of the total membrane protein. It exists as a dimer and performs the important function of allowing the efficient transport of bicarbonate across erythrocyte cell membranes in exchange for chloride ion.
The voltage difference, normally maintained at approximately -180mV, across the INNER MITOCHONDRIAL MEMBRANE, by a net movement of positive charge across the membrane. It is a major component of the PROTON MOTIVE FORCE in MITOCHONDRIA used to drive the synthesis of ATP.
Potassium channel whose permeability to ions is extremely sensitive to the transmembrane potential difference. The opening of these channels is induced by the membrane depolarization of the ACTION POTENTIAL.
The relating of causes to the effects they produce. Causes are termed necessary when they must always precede an effect and sufficient when they initiate or produce an effect. Any of several factors may be associated with the potential disease causation or outcome, including predisposing factors, enabling factors, precipitating factors, reinforcing factors, and risk factors.
Blood is a specialized bodily fluid that delivers necessary substances to the body's cells (in animals) – such as nutrients and oxygen – and transports waste products away from those same cells. In vertebrates, it is composed of blo...
Fertility is the ability of a couple to conceive, but can related to specifically the man or woman. Various reasons can cause a couple to be infertile, and due to the strong desire of these patients to have <!--LGfEGNT2Lhm-->children, a range of ...
