LncRNA gadd7, increased in varicocele patients, suppresses cell proliferation and promotes cell apoptosis

Varicocele-related sperm damages are usually caused by oxidative stresses. Growing evidence indicates that lncRNA growth arrested DNA-damage inducible gene 7 (gadd7) is involved in the regulation of the oxidative stress responses. In this study, we measured the expression level of gadd7 in the sperm and found that the expression of gadd7 was significantly… CONTINUE READING
