The presence of mRNAs in human ejaculate spermatozoa is well established, yet little is known of the representation or function of these transcripts. To address these issues, the complexity of spermatozoal RNA was examined. As expected, testis-expressed mRNAs were detected by RT-PCR in mature human spermatozoa. Interestingly, when a testis cDNA library was(More)
Epigenetic changes such as DNA methylation and histone methylation and acetylation alter gene expression at the level of transcription by upregulating, downregulating, or silencing genes completely. Dysregulation of epigenetic events can be pathological, leading to cardiovascular disease, neurological disorders, metabolic disorders, and cancer development.(More)
