Reports that ongoing studies are providing researchers with an improved understanding of spermatogenesis that may lead to new approaches for male infertility management and gene therapy, according to David J. Cozzolino, a fellow in reproductive medicine and surgery. Research showing how spematogonial stem cell transplantation recovered spermatogenesis in mice made sterile by chemotherapy and radiation.

    Sphingolipids and the derived gangliosides have critical functions in spermatogenesis, thus mutations in genes involved in sphingolipid biogenesis are often associated with male infertility. We have generated a transgenic mouse line carrying an insertion in the sphingomyelin synthase gene Sms1,...
