Fkbp6 has been proved to be a new component of synaptonemal complexes and be involved in homologous chromosomes pairing and male infertility in mice. To explore the possible association between variations in the FKBP6 gene and impaired spermatogenesis in human, mutation screening of all the eight exons and the intron/exon boundaries of the gene was(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the possible association between the common single nucleotide polymorphism N372H in human breast cancer susceptibility gene 2 (BRCA2) and the idiopathic male infertility with azoospermia or severe oligozoospermia. STUDY DESIGN The study included 240 infertile patients with idiopathic azoospermia or severe oligozoospermia and 250(More)
Copy deletion screening of DAZ gene family on the Y chromosome in 485 patients with idiopathic azoospermia or oligozoospermia and 236 fertile men revealed that the prevalence of deletion patterns of the entire DAZ gene and DAZ1/DAZ2 gene were significantly higher in the patients than in fertile men. The deletion patterns correlate with spermatogenic(More)
Cyclin A1 is essential for meiosis as shown by its essential role in mouse spermatogenesis, suggesting that changes in the gene may also alter male fertility in humans. In the present study, we performed a mutation screening of the cyclin A1 gene in order to investigate the possible association between the mutations of the gene and human impaired(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the associations of IDDM3, IDDM4, IDDM5 and IDDM8 with insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM). METHODS The polymorphisms of short tandem repeat (STR) loci D15S657, D11S1369, D6S2420 and D6S503, linked to IDDM3, IDDM4, IDDM5 and IDDM8 respectively, were studied by polymerase chain reaction and polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis(More)
