The follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) acts on the Sertoli cells in the seminiferous tubules of the testis and regulates spermatogenesis up to the secondary spermatocyte stage. This study aimed to investigate molecular genetic characteristics of the bovine FSH beta-subunit gene (FSHB) and elucidate the effects of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) of FSHB on the quality of fresh and frozen semen and on fertility in bulls. We used polymerase chain reaction single-strand conformation… CONTINUE READING
