Today, approximately 15% of couples have reduced fertility. In most cases the reason is male infertility, usually of genetic origin. Thus, in the context of research in genes involved in reproduction and sex determination, genetic defects in gametogenesis are being extensively studied. The most frequent pathogenic causes of male infertility are Y chromosomal microdeletions and obstructive azoospermia due to congenital absence of the vas deferens (CAVD) in the presence of mutations in the cystic… CONTINUE READING
