A replication study of a candidate locus for follicle-stimulating hormone levels and association analysis for semen quality traits in Japanese men


In men, follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) acts on the seminiferous tubules and enhances spermatogenesis. Recently, a candidate locus (rs2414095) for FSH levels was identified by a genome-wide association study (GWAS) in Chinese men. The rs2414095 single-nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) is found on the third intron of the cytochrome P450, family 19, subfamily… (More)
