A comprehensive proteomic approach to identifying capacitation related proteins in boar spermatozoa.
Ansŏng, South Korea. In Bmc Genomics, 2013
RESULT: We identified Ras-related protein Rab-2, Phospholipid hydroperoxide glutathione peroxidase (PHGPx) and Mitochondrial pyruvate dehydrogenase E1 component subunit beta (PDHB) that were enriched before-capacitation, and NADH dehydrogenase 1 beta subcomplex 6, Mitochondrial peroxiredoxin-5, (PRDX5), Apolipoprotein A-I (APOA1), Mitochondrial Succinyl-CoA ligase [ADP-forming] subunit beta (SUCLA2), Acrosin-binding protein, Ropporin-1A, and Spermadhesin AWN that were enriched after-capacitation (>3-fold) by 2-DE and ESI-MS/MS.
Differentiation of murine male germ cells to spermatozoa in a soft agar culture system.
Beersheba, Israel. In Asian J Androl, 2012
Immunofluorescence and real-time PCR were used to analyse specific markers expressed in undifferentiated and differentiated spermatogonia (Vasa, Dazl, OCT-4, C-Kit, GFR-α-1, CD9 and α-6-integrin), meiotic cells (LDH, Crem-1 and Boule) and post-meiotic cells (Protamine-1, Acrosin and SP-10).
In vitro differentiation of male mouse embryonic stem cells into both presumptive sperm cells and oocytes.
São Paulo, Brazil. In Cloning Stem Cells, 2006
It seems that gamete-like cell formation occurs in the correct manner based on the expression of early and late GC-specific genes such as Oct-4, Mvh, Stella, Dazl, Piwil 2, Pdrd 1, Rex 14, Rnf 17, Bmp8b, Acrosin, Stra-8, Haprin, LH-R, Gdf9, Zp3, Zp2, Sycp1, and Sycp3.
Semen characteristics: Advancement in andrological assessment.
New Delhi, India. In Indian J Clin Biochem, 2005
In this review, the recent advancement in investigation procedures has been analyzed which are very important in clinical practice to (a) evaluate the sperm fertilizing ability (Acrosin, aniline blue, HOS), (b) characterization of male accessory sex glands secretions (Fructose, alpha-glucosidase, PSA) and (c) the management of azoospermic patients.
