AbstractThe zona pellucida-3 (ZP3) protein plays a pivotal role in oocyte and gamete development. We aimed to produce a recombinant ZP3 peptide using theEscherichia coli secretory system and apply it to a protein chip for detecting anti-ZP3 antibodies. The ZP3 gene was cloned into the pHOA downstream of thephoA promoter and transformed intoE. coli YK537. Recombinant ZP3 was secretory expressed by decreasing the inorganic phosphate concentration. Then, rZP3 was purified and coated onto a protein chip, which was used to detect AZP3A in serum samples from 63 infertile patients. The area under the receiver operating characteri...

Abstract Objective: Our objective was to explore whether the pregnancy rate (PR) was higher than usual after hysterosalpingo-contrast sonography (HyCoSy). Methods: We conducted a prospective observational study of 1,008 infertility patients, all of whom were examined by HyCoSy. The expected time for spontaneous pregnancy was at least 180 days after the HyCoSy exams. There were three types of HyCoSy results: type I, defined as both fallopian tubes patent; type II, defined as one fallopian tube patent with obstruction in the other; and type III, defined as both fallopian tubes obstructed.
