Early-stage sperm cells created from human bone marrow

...ne marrow. The cells were transplanted into mouse testes and were observed to undergo early meiosis - cell division - the next stage to them becoming mature sperm cells, although they did not develop further. Talking about his newly published research paper, Prof Nayernia, of Newcastle University, said ...

Exposure to dioxins influences male reproductive system, study of Vietnam veterans concludes

...chidism (undescended testes, a condition where the testes are not in their normal location in the scrotum) and hypospadias (abnormality of the urethra). The reason for this increase is not known, but it is thought that these disorders might be caused by environmental chemicals that are estrogenic and ha...

Sperm created in the laboratory from embryonic stem cells produce viable progeny

Intra-cytoplasmic injection of the ES-derived sperm into mouse eggs resulted in successful fertilization and the resulting early stage embryos were successfully transplanted into mice. Six ...

Viral hitchhiker inhibits Wolbachia bacteria's ability to proliferate

... number of WO-B viruses and Wolbachia cells in the testes of a common host: the fruit-fly-sized jewel wasp, Nasonia vitripennis. The researchers found that the virus was indeed associated with reduced bacterial growth. Then they bred the wasps and confirmed fewer incidences of cytoplasmic incompatibility i...

Injection may prevent infertility in men receiving cancer chemotherapy

It may be possible to protect the testes of cancer patients against the loss of fertility c...up. After 30 days they were euthanized and their testes examined and weighed. The researchers found that a single dose of Taxol had induced significant te...

Genetic tug of war determines sexual differentiation

...les of the adult testis," she continued. "Once the testes are formed, they start producing testosterone, which commits the whole animal to male development. The researchers found that not only does Fgf9 stabilize the expression of Sox9 and secure the male fate of the gonad, it suppresses the activity of th...

UCLA scientists find male gene in brain area targeted by Parkinson's

...esponsible for making embryos male and forming the testes is also produced by the brain region targeted by Parkinson's disease. Published in the Feb. 21 edition of Current Biology, the new research may explain why more men than women develop the degenerative disorder, which afflicts roughly 1 million Ameri...

Sperm stem cells closer to being like embryonic stem cells

...ntify when mixed with other cell types. "The rat testes contain other cells types in addition to stem cells," Dr. Hamra said. "If these other cells are included in the culture, they produce chemicals that block the ability of the stem cells to remain stem cells. We're still trying to figure out why. But t...

Sudden change in social status triggers genetic response in male fish, study finds

"Previously we did an experiment in which we moved the subordinate male out of the tank and put him in a situation where he could rise and become dominant," Fernald says. "Because he was in a new situation,...
