Experimental varicocoele in rats affects mechanisms that control expression and function of the androgen receptor.


Varicocoele is an important cause of male infertility. Normal male reproductive function and fertility depends on a delicate balance between androgen receptor (AR) and the classic oestrogen receptors ESR1 (ERα) and ESR2 (ERβ).
