Microdeletions in the azoospermia factor (AZF) regions on the long arm of the human Y chromosome are known to be associated with spermatogenic failure. Although AZFc is recurrently deleted in azoospermic or oligozoospermic males, no definitive conclusion has been reached for the contribution of different partial AZFc deletions to spermatogenic failure. To further investigate the roles of partial deletions in spermatogenic failure and the relationship between the complete and partial AZFc… CONTINUE READING
