A Novel Discovered Role for CFTR in Azoospermia and Wolffian Duct Maldevelopment Caused by Cryptorchidism

Hadziselimovic Faruk , Verkauskas Gilvydas , Stadler Michael

Aim of the Study: Cryptorchidism occurs more frequently in CF-children, and malformed epididymis was found more in cryptorchid boys with abrogated mini-puberty. Cystic Fibrosis Transmembrane Conductance Regulator (CFTR) is transporter protein that acts as a chloride channel. Specifically, CFTR is associated with spermatogenesis and fertility.Patients and Methods: Testicular biopsies for histological and RNA analysis from...

Cryptorchid Boys with Abrogated Mini-Puberty Display Differentially Expressed Genes Involved in Sudden Infant Death Syndrome

Hadziselimovic Faruk , Verkauskas Gilvydas , Vicel Beate , Stadler Michael

Background: The long QT syndrome is the most frequent a well-established causative factor, among cardiac channelopathies, for the sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). It accounts for approximately 12% of the cases. The non-transcriptional regulation of slowly activating delayed rectifier K+ currents and suppression of L-type Ca2+ currents by testosterone is a regulatory mechanism of cardiac repolarization that potentially contributes to the control...

Objective and hypotheses: The objective was to use whole-genome RNA profiling of testicular biopsies by DNA strand-specific RNA-sequencing to explore the causative role of isolated congenital cryptorchidism in azoospermia and/or infertility.Method: Fifteen cryptorchid patients, aged 7 months to 5 years, were enrolled in this study and underwent orchidopexy. During surgery, testicular tissue biopsies were collected and split in half for histological exami...

Background/Aims: 46,XY gonadal dysgenesis (GD) is classified as complete (CGD) or partial (PGD) depending on gonadal morphology and function. In contrast to the typical female external genitalia in CGD, the phenotype of PGD is variable depending on androgen production. A diagnosis of PGD is based on clinical/biochemical features, gonadal histology and genetic findings. The aim of this study is to characterise these features, particularly histological, in a lar...
