  • adj. of or relating to spermatogenesis


Sorry, no etymologies found.


  • Transient exposure of a gestating female rat during the period of gonadal sex determination to the endocrine disruptors vinclozalin (an antiandrogenic compound) or methoxychlor (an estrogenic compound) induces decreased spermatogenic capacity (cell number and viability) and increased incidence of male infertility in nearly all males of all subsequent generations examined.

  • Thus there was some evidence that irradiated PRD diet has weak mutagenic activity in the meiotic and/or pre-meiotic phase of the spermatogenic cycle which appeared to be lessened on storage; the inclusion of such a diet in toxicological studies would therefore need to be carefully considered.

  • "It is the males that invest most effort into extravagant sexual display that experience this spermatogenic 'burn-out' at an earlier age," the researchers, led by biologist Brian Preston, wrote in this week's Ecology Letters journal - according to Wired, since I don't have a subscription.

  • Seminiferous tubules showed disruption of the normal spermatogenic cycle with abnormal acrosomal development on round spermatids, clumping of acrosomes, misaligned spermatids and the absence of normal elongated spermatids in Ehd1 -/- males.

  • Researchers found the rats that drank the concentrated pomegranate juice had "increased spermatogenic cell density, epididymal sperm concentration, sperm motility and decreased abnormal sperm rate".

  • Boys with this chromosomal alteration have a progressive testicular failure with spermatogenic failure and reduced testosterone concentrations in late adolescence and early adulthood.

  • In normal conditions, there will be TWO meiotic divisions, whether oogenic or spermatogenic.

  • The advances resulted largely from discovery that signaling in sperm uses several unique proteins that are produced primarily or exclusively in meiotic and post-meiotic spermatogenic cells, opening the door for genetic approaches to study sperm signaling pathways and their roles.

  • CatSper family proteins are expressed exclusively in spermatogenic cells and specifically traffic to membranes of the developing sperm flagellum.
