Single intraperitoneal injection of busulfan at 20 mg/kg body weight to mature male mice induced the deletion of the spermatogenic cells, followed by the restoration of the spermatogenesis by the surviving undifferentiated spermatogonia. The changes of the protein contents in testis during these processes were analyzed by two-dimensional gel electrophoresis in order to identify the proteins expressed at the specific stages of spermatogenesis. An acidic protein that disappeared and recovered in… CONTINUE READING
