Cryopreservation-induced stress may result in membrane injury with consequent decrease of sperm motility and fertilizing capacity. This study has investigated the relationship between human spermatozoa tolerance to cryopreservation and the loss of plasma membrane asymmetry, especially translocation of phosphatidylserine (PS) from the inner to the outer leaflet. The prospective study was performed on semen samples from 31 men. Conventional characteristics of 20 semen were analysed, before and… CONTINUE READING
