Cellular parameters of the seminogram have been previously shown to correlate with L-carnitine concentration in the seminal fluid. Carnitine is involved in a variety of metabolic processes playing an important role in maintaining an active oxidative phosphorylation (OXPHOS). Recently, we have found a significant association between the specific activities of the respiratory chain complexes and the seminogram parameters and here we have studied the relationship between the spermatozoa OXPHOS… CONTINUE READING
