Chromothripsis Potential origin in gametogenesis and preimplantation cell divisions A review

Tuesday, November 25, 2014
The role of chromothripsis, a heretofore unexpected cause of massive chromosomal rearrangements, and its potential impact on gametogenesis and early embryonic development are explored in this review.

Sperm content of postacrosomal WW binding protein is related to fertilization outcomes in patients undergoing assisted reproductive technology

Wednesday, July 30, 2014
Sperm content of the postacrosomal head protein PAWP is positively correlated with successful fertilization and normal preimplantation embryonic development after intracytoplasmic sperm injection.

Proteomic identification of target proteins in normal but nonfertilizing sperm

Wednesday, July 30, 2014
The objective of this study was to identify male molecular causes of fertilization failures. Samples were analyzed by proteomic analysis. Two proteins involved in gametic interaction were identified: LR67 receptor and xylulose reductase.

Are sperm DNA fragmentation hyperactivation and hyaluronan binding ability predictive for fertilization and embryo development in in vitro fertilization and intracytoplasmic sperm injection

Thursday, March 28, 2013
Because DNA fragmentation, hyaluronan-binding ability, and induced hyperactivity of spermatozoa correlate with the fertilization rate after in vitro fertilization, blastocyst formation can be predicted by the sperm DNA fragmentation rate.

Phospholipase C zeta rescues failed oocyte activation in a prototype of male factor infertility

Wednesday, January 2, 2013
Oocytes expressing mutant sperm phospholipase Cz (PLCz) fail to activate, but microinjection of wild-type human PLCz rescues failed activation and triggers embryo development.

Intracytoplasmic sperm injection ICSI for non male factor infertility A committee opinion

Thursday, November 29, 2012
This committee opinion assesses the literature, where available, to identify situations where intracytoplasmic sperm injection may be indicated in the absence of an identified male factor.
