    The article discusses the relationship between glutathione s-transferase polymorphism (GSTM1) and glutathione s-transferase theta 1 gene (GSTT1) with the male infertility risk. It states that the gene loci will rise due to the absence of enzyme activity which result to the deletion of gene. It...
