Study of Microdeletions in the Y Chromosome of Infertile Men with Idiopathic Oligo- or Azoospermia


Purpose: To determine the relationships between idiopathic oligo- or azoospermia and microdeletions of the Y chromosome. Methods: Eighteen Y-linked sequence-tagged sites (STSs) in AZF (Azoospermia Factor) region were screened by means of multiplex PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) in 50 idiopathic infertile men, including 16 patients with azoospermia, 13… (More)
