Is there a role for lysine glutarylation (Kglu), a newly identified protein post-translational modification (PTM), in human sperm?
This article was published in the following journal.
Name: Human reproduction (Oxford, England)
In mouse and bovine sperm, GSK3 activity is inversely proportional to motility. Targeted disruption of the GSK3A gene in testis results in normal spermatogenesis, but mature sperm present a reduced mo...
Increasing studies have shown that specific mRNAs and miRNAs expressed in mature sperm may be related to sperm motility. However, the expression profiles and roles of lncRNAs in sperm remain unknown. ...
Does the presence of human papillomavirus (HPV) in semen impact seminal parameters and sperm DNA quality in white European men seeking medical help for primary couple's infertility?
In horse breeding, quality assessment of semen before insemination is often requested. Non-laboratory-based techniques for objective analysis of sperm motility are thus of interest. The aim of this st...
To date, there has been limited evidence to reveal the effect of terahertz radiation on sperm. In this study, semen samples were collected from males who had just finished a prepregnancy computer-assi...
This study was conducted to investigate the effects of daily supplementation of Allium cepa L. and Cuscuta chinensis Lam. Extract Mixtures (DA-9401) on improvement of sperm motility.
Immotile sperm is a rather frequent problem encountered in IVF patients. Treatment is usually based on inducing motility with pentoxyphylline (PXN) followed by ICSI. However, fertilization...
The phospholipids of mammalian spermatozoa possess a distinctive fatty acid composition with high proportion of long chain polyunsaturated fatty acids. The lipid composition is a major det...
Cryopreservation is the storage of biological material at subzero temperatures at which biochemical processes of cell metabolism and the biochemical reactions that lead to cell death are s...
We plan to retrospectively analyze clinical data from 14,189 fresh ICSI cycles in Reproductive and Genetic Hospital of CITIC-Xiangya from January 2016 to December 2017. We will regard tota...
The quality of SEMEN, an indicator of male fertility, can be determined by semen volume, pH, sperm concentration (SPERM COUNT), total sperm number, sperm viability, sperm vigor (SPERM MOTILITY), normal sperm morphology, ACROSOME integrity, and the concentration of WHITE BLOOD CELLS.
An assisted fertilization technique consisting of the microinjection of a single viable sperm into an extracted ovum. It is used principally to overcome low sperm count, low sperm motility, inability of sperm to penetrate the egg, or other conditions related to male infertility (INFERTILITY, MALE).
The posterior filiform portion of the spermatozoon (SPERMATOZOA) that provides sperm motility.
The structural and functional changes by which SPERMATOZOA become capable of oocyte FERTILIZATION. It normally requires exposing the sperm to the female genital tract for a period of time to bring about increased SPERM MOTILITY and the ACROSOME REACTION before fertilization in the FALLOPIAN TUBES can take place.
The maturing process of SPERMATOZOA after leaving the testicular SEMINIFEROUS TUBULES. Maturation in SPERM MOTILITY and FERTILITY takes place in the EPIDIDYMIS as the sperm migrate from caput epididymis to cauda epididymis.
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
