Hormone sensitive lipase (HSL) is a triacylglycerol hydrolase and cholesterol esterase that is essential for male fertility. The aim of the study was to investigate the distribution of C-60G polymorphism of HSL gene and alleles in fertile and infertile males living in Hamadan, Iran. In addition, lipase activity was determined in these two groups. The HSL(More)
BACKGROUND Freeze damage is one of the most important factors which impair the membrane and DNA integrity of sperm cells. OBJECTIVE The present study aims to investigate glutathione (GSH) supplementation on human spermatozoa cryopreservation. We determined sperm motility and viability, sperm lipid peroxidation, DNA damage, and the amount of hydrogen(More)
INTRODUCTION The swim up and the density-gradient centrifugation are the two main techniques which are used to separate the viable motile sperm fraction in the assisted reproductive technology. However, there are several published studies about these methods, but there is no sufficient evidence for recommending the superiority of one of them. This study was(More)
The aim of this study was to determine the effect of butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT) supplemented cryopreservation medium on sperm parameters during the freeze-thaw process. In addition, sperm lipid peroxidation, DNA damage, and the amount of reactive oxygen species (ROS) were determined. Semen samples were obtained from 75 donors. Fifteen semen samples were(More)
It is believed that matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) play important roles in follicular development and pathogenesis of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). However, conflicting results are available about the alteration of MMP2 and MMP9 concentrations or activities in PCOS. In fact, there is no study entirely investigating both concentration and activity of(More)
INTRODUCTION Aniridia represents a congenital ocular disorder with partial or complete iris hypoplasia. The disorder is associated with poor vision, glaucoma, corneal and lenticular opacities, ectopia lentis due to abnormal zonula fibers, as well as optic nerve and macular abnormalities. Aniridia may present as either hereditary or sporadic cases. Some of(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate frequency distribution of adenosine deaminase 1 (ADA1) G22 A alleles and genotypes in fertile and infertile men. METHODS In this study we evaluate frequency distribution of ADA1 G22 A alleles and genotypes in 200 fertile and 200 infertile men. The polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length polymorphism technique was used(More)

Adenosine deaminase-1 (ADA1) regulates the concentration of adenosine as the main modulator of oocyte maturation. There is compelling evidence for the association of ADA1 gene polymorphisms with many diseases but the importance of ADA1 polymorphisms in polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) has not been studied before. This study investigates serum total ADA(More)
BACKGROUND Oxidative stress in reproductive system leads to sperm DNA damage and sperm membrane lipid peroxidation and may play an important role in the pathogenesis of male infertility, especially in idiopathic cases. Antioxidants such as carotenoids function against free radical damages. OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to determine the levels of(More)
