Searching for candidate genes for male infertility.
Melbourne, Australia. In Asian J Androl, 2003
METHODS AND RESULTS: To demonstrate this in silico research, the following male infertility candidate genes were selected: (1) human BOULE, mutations of which may lead to germ cell arrest at the primary spermatocyte stage, (2) mutations of casein kinase 2 alpha genes which may cause globozoospermia, (3) DMR-N9 which is possibly involved in the spermatogenic defect of myotonic dystrophy and (4) several testes expressed genes at or near the breakpoints of a balanced translocation associated with hypospermatogenesis.
Expanding complexity in myotonic dystrophy.
Nijmegen, Netherlands. In Bioessays, 1998
There is now circumstantial evidence that long (CTG)n repeats may affect the expression of any of at least three genes, myotonic dystrophy protein kinase (DMPK), DMR-N9 (gene 59), and a DM-associated homeodomain protein (DMAHP).
