Instituto Bernabeu applies new technique to detect alterations in sperm production

  • 12/27/17

At the Association for the Study of Reproduction Biology (ASEBIR)'s 9th Congress held in Madrid, Instituto Bernabeu introduced a research paper focusing on checking the MLPA (Multiplex Ligation-dependent Probe Amplification) technique's sensitivity levels in order to find out how specific alterations can affect sperm production. Our investigation entitled: "New technique to detect Y chromosome microdeletion (YCM): Clinical implications” was based on the fact that Y chromosomes comprise different genetic regions involved with spermatogenesis or sperm production. In the event that one of these regions, also known as AZF, was deleted or duplicated, this could result in either a low amount or the complete absence of sperm.
