Spam1 (PH-20) mutations and sperm dysfunction in mice with the Rb(6.16) or Rb(6.15) translocation

Abstract

In mice bearing the Rb(6.16) or Rb(6.15) Robertsonian translocation (Rb), sperm dysfunction associated with the Rbs has been shown to lead to transmission ratio distortions (TRDs) in heterozygotes. The severity of the TRDs is directly related to the severity in the alteration of expression of the gene for the Sperm Adhesion Molecule 1 (Spam1), which maps to… (More)
