Comparative proteomics reveals protective effect of resveratrol on a high-fat diet-induced damage to mice testis.
Abstract In recent years, resveratrol has been shown to protect against metabolic damage, including obesity-associated subfertility/infertility. In the present study, proteomic alterations in testicular tissues were investigated by tandem mass tag (TMT) in mice fed with a high-fat diet (HFD) without or with resveratrol supplementation (HFD+RSV). Serum testosterone levels, spermatozoa parameters and testicular histological morphology were assessed. Resveratrol treatment was shown to significantly reduce serum cholesterol, prevent the HFD-induced reductions in serum testosterone and spermatozoa parameters, and decre...

Role of preovulatory concentrations of estradiol on timing of conception and regulation of the uterine environment in beef cattle.
Abstract The ability to induce ovulation with an injection of GnRH facilitated the development of fixed-time artificial insemination (AI) protocols. However, animals that exhibit estrus prior to fixed-time AI have greater pregnancy success. Thus, the objectives of the present experiments were to determine the impact of estrus expression prior to fixed-time AI on timing of conception and to characterize the role of preovulatory estradiol in regulating changes in expression of uterine genes. In experiment 1, data were collected from 4,499 beef cows inseminated by fixed-time AI in 31 different herds. Animals that did...

Identification of differentially expressed proteins associated with recurrence in ovarian endometriotic cysts.
The objective of this study was to identify proteins that are differentially expressed in the cystic wall tissues of ovarian endometriotic cysts, simple ovarian cysts, and in normal ovarian tissues. Specimens of ovarian endometriotic cyst wall tissue, simple ovarian cyst wall tissue, and normal ovarian tissue (six specimens per group) were collected from patients who received gynecologic surgery, respectively. Differentially expressed proteins related to the ovarian endometriotic cysts were screened by use of isobaric tags for relative and absolute quantitation (iTRAQ) combined with functional annotation and bioinformatics...

Karyotypic abnormalities and molecular analysis of Y chromosome microdeletion in Iranian Azeri Turkish population infertile men.
Abstract Infertility is one of the major health-threatening problems in communities which may lead to psychological problems among couples. Y chromosome abnormalities and microdeletions have recently been considered as one of the male infertility factors. The aim of this study was to evaluate different chromosomal disorders and azoospermia factor b (AZFb), AZFc and AZFd microdeletions in idiopathic non-obstructive oligo or azoospermia infertile men. One hundred infertile (78 azoospermia and 22 oligospermia) and 100 fertile men were included in this study. Luteinizing hormone (LH) and follicle stimulating hormone (...

Predictive factors for sperm retrieval from males with azoospermia who are eligible for testicular sperm extraction (TESE).
Abstract The aim of this study was to evaluate the predictive value of factors in infertile male patients to retrieve sperm from their testicles before they undergo testicular sperm extraction (TESE). In total, 64 males were enrolled in this study. Infertility was identified as obstructive azoospermia (OA); non-obstructive azoospermia (NOA); Klinefelter syndrome (KS); and cryptozoospermia (Crypt). Age, body mass index and concomitant conditions were noted. Testicular volumes, serum levels of Follicle-Stimulating Hormone (FSH), Luteinizing Hormone (LH), testosterone (T) and prolactin were investigated. Sperm retrie...

Peroxisome Proliferator-Activated Receptors (PPARs) levels in spermatozoa of normozoospermic and asthenozoospermic men.
This study was designed to determine and compare PPARα, PPARβ and PPARγ mRNA expression in sperm cells of normozoospermic and asthenozoospermic men. In addition, flow cytometric analyses, immunofluorescence and western blot were used to evaluate PPARγ protein levels in spermatozoa. We have compared the sperm PPARs mRNA relative expression in 27 normozoospermic and 28 asthenozoospermic samples and monitored sperm PPARγ protein levels in 39 normozoospermic and 40 asthenozoospermic samples using flow cytometry. We have also assessed in a sub-group of seven normozoospermic and eight asthenozoosperm...

Pelvic Radiation-Induced Testicular Damage: An Experimental Study at 1 Gray.
In this study we aimed to evaluate the effects of a low therapeutic dose of 1 Gy on the induction of cellular and histological damage in early-stage testicular germ cells and the impact of this radiation on offspring sex ratio. Unirradiated and irradiated male rats were mated with unirradiated female rats. Female rats were followed and the sex of the offspring was determined. The male rats were sacrificed at the end of the second week, and the testicular germ cells were subjected to genetic analysis along with cytological and histopathological examination. Sperm DNA was amplified with primers specific to testis-specif...

H3K4me2 accompanies chromatin immaturity in human spermatozoa: an epigenetic marker for sperm quality assessment.
In this study, 99 semen samples, including 22 normozoospermic (N), 63 asthenozoospermic (A), and 14 oligoasthenozoospermic (OA) samples, were comprehensively analyzed with respect to H3K4me2 levels, DNA damage (DNA fragmentation index, DFI), and sperm immaturity (high DNA stainability, %HDS), as determined by a sperm chromatin structure assay using flow cytometry. We detected a significant relationship between H3K4me2 and %HDS (r = 0.47; p  OA) indicates the importance of chromatin immaturity and histone code deviations in sperm evaluations. Using various approaches, our study elucidated H3K4me2 as a molecular ma...

Conventional IVF improves blastocyst rate and quality compared to ICSI when used in patients with mild or moderate teratozoospermia.
Abstract The ICSI procedure was invented to treat severe male infertility but is often used even if the sperm quality parameters are normal. This practice has recently been called into question, but there is still no clear answer especially in terms of sperm morphology, regarding when it is necessary to perform ICSI and when conventional IVF is indeed more beneficial. In borderline cases it seems logical to fertilize oocytes using ICSI and conventional IVF at the same time. Since we also use this approach we performed a retrospective analysis of such cycles to elucidate, which procedure results in a better clinica...

Thymoquinone ameliorates obesity-induced metabolic dysfunction, improves reproductive efficiency exhibiting a dose-organ relationship.
Abstract Women with obesity are more likely to have a complicated reproductive life. Insulin resistance and metabolic dysfunction are associated with obesity. Thymoquinone (TQ) is a well-known antioxidant, considered to be an AMPK-activator. The goal of this work was to investigate the ability of TQ to improve fertility and lactation and clarify the possible mechanism. Female C57BL/6 mice were subjected to High Fat Diet (HFD) supplemented with TQ (10% pmm) and TQ (20% pmm). Histopathological examination was conducted on mammary and ovarian samples. Metabolic and oxidant status was evaluated, and qRT-PCR analysis w...
