It has been suggested that oviductal proteins could be involved in modulating sperm function and fertilizing ability through as yet not well-known mechanisms. The objective of the study was to investigate the pattern of proteins secreted by human oviductal tissue cultures and the effects of their conditioned media (CM) on sperm function under capacitating(More)
Glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) deficiency was identified in two children who were studied because of hemolytic episodes. The electrophoretic and kinetic properties of the mutant enzymes allowed us to conclude that both of them were new variants. They were named G6PD Guantánamo and G6PD Caujerí.
A glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) variant was studied in a mulatto patient with chronic nonspherocytic hemolytic anemia. This variant has reduced activity, increased thermolability, a reduced Michaelis constant for glucose-6-phosphate, slightly increased electrophoretic mobility, a biphasic pH activity profile, high 2-deoxyglucose-6-phosphate(More)
Despite the fact that both peritoneal (PF) and follicular (FF) fluids have a common ovarian origin, FF is a natural inducer of sperm acrosome reaction (AR) while PF is not. To better understand these effects, concentrations of oestradiol, progesterone and proteins in peri-ovulatory PF and FF were determined and compared. PF was aspirated by laparoscopy at(More)
Sources of demographic data for Venezuela include 11 population censuses conducted between 1873-1981, birth and death registration statistics, and the household sample survey. The average annual rate of population growth increase from 2.8% between 1920-40 to 3-4% thereafter. The population at the 1961 census was 7.52 million. According to preliminary(More)
