Microdeletions of the long arm of the Y chromosome (Yq) are a common cause of male infertility. Since large structural rearrangements of the Y chromosome are commonly associated with a 45,XO/46,XY chromosomal mosaicism, we studied whether submicroscopic Yq deletions could also be associated with the development of 45,XO cell lines. We studied blood samples(More)
OBJECTIVES The integration of a proviral plasmid into the host genome could be a good approach for fetal somatic gene transfer. The goal of this study was to assess the integration and transcription of a proviral marker gene injected intraperitoneally into rat fetuses as well as the risks of maternal contamination and germ-line transmission. METHODS On(More)
Microdeletions on the short arm of the Y chromosome have defined three non-overlapping regions (AZFa, b, c) recurrently deleted among infertile males. These regions contain several genes or gene families involved in male germ-cell development and maintenance. Even though a meiotic origin for these microdeletions is assumed, the mechanisms and causes leading(More)
About 30% of infertilities are from male origin. They appear in some cases de novo and considered idiopathic. The aim of our work is to evaluate, in these cases, the Y chromosome long arm microdeletion prevalence within the AZF a, b and c regions by molecular biology technics. Were excluded from our study, azoo-oligospermia from hereditary, endocrine,(More)
