Germ cells of male mice express genes for peroxisomal metabolic pathways implicated in the regulation of spermatogenesis and the protection against oxidative stress

Abstract

Peroxisomes are organelles with main functions in the metabolism of lipids and of reactive oxygen species. Within the testis, they have different functional profiles depending on the cell types. A dysfunction of peroxisomes interferes with regular spermatogenesis and can lead to infertility due to spermatogenic arrest. However, so far only very little is… (More)
