Levels of the retinoic acid synthesizing enzyme ALDH1A2 are lower in testicular tissue from men with infertility

Monday, March 31, 2014
Levels of aldehyde dehydrogenase-1A2 (ALDH1A2), which synthesizes retinoic acid, are significantly reduced in testicular tissue from men with infertility compared with controls, suggesting an association between ALDH1A2 and male infertility.

Association of aberrant expression of sex determining gene fibroblast growth factor 9 with Sertoli cell only syndrome

Wednesday, November 27, 2013
Testicular fibroblast growth factor 9 (FGF9) is expressed in adult Leydig cells, and its expression is significantly decreased in patients with Sertoli cell–only syndrome. A promoter polymorphism of FGF9 contributes to its aberrant expression.

Genetic variants in the ETV5 gene in fertile and infertile men with nonobstructive azoospermia associated with Sertoli cell-only syndrome

Thursday, September 27, 2012
We showed that the homozygous +48845 G>T (TT allele) variant in the ETV5 gene is associated with Sertoli cell–only (SCO) syndrome and nonobstructive azoospermia (NOA) in Australian men.
