The distribution and relative density of peptide-containing nerves was studied in the rat in order to assess the progression of neuronal changes during the postnatal development of the male genital system from the prepubertal age to adulthood. Testis, caput and cauda epididymis, ductus deferens, seminal vesicles, prostate and penis from 8-, 20-, 38-, and(More)
Myoid cells of the human caput epididymidis are replaced by large cells with ultrastructural features of smooth muscle cells (SMC) in chronic obstruction of the male genital tract. To evaluate whether these cellular changes are associated with different functional phenotypes we analysed the immunohistochemical expression of myosin heavy chain isoforms and(More)
Sperm carbohydrate binding activity is involved in gamete recognition. We identified a human sperm protein extracted under reducing conditions, and with a molecular mass of 65 kDa on sodium dodecyl sulphate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (SDS-PAGE), and which binds D-mannose coupled to albumin (DMA) in presence of cations and a neutral pH.(More)
Klinefelter Syndrome (KS) is characterized by an extreme heterogeneity in its clinical and genetic presentation. The relationship between clinical phenotype and genetic background has been partially disclosed; nevertheless, physicians are aware that several aspects concerning this issue are far to be fully understood. By improving our knowledge on the role(More)
