Pitfalls and promises in FTIR spectromicroscopy analyses to monitor iron-mediated DNA damage in sperm.

Abstract

Many drugs, chemicals, and environmental factors can impair sperm functionality by inducing DNA damage, one of the important causes of reduced fertility potential. The use of vibrational spectromicroscopy represents a promising approach for monitoring DNA integrity in sperm, although some limitations exist, depending from the experimental conditions.
