Cells isolated from the ejaculates of a high proportion of patients exhibiting oligozoospermia are characterized by generation rates of reactive oxygen species that considerably exceed those obtained for the normal fertile population. The purpose of this study was to resolve the cellular source of this enhanced activity. Semen samples from a cohort of oligozoospermic patients and a group of fertile controls were fractionated on discontinuous Percoll gradients to generate three cell populations… CONTINUE READING
