Oxidative stress and sperm motility in spermatoozoa of IOAT patients and their relation to outer dense fibers abnormalities
INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVE: Outer dense fibers (ODFs) are nine fibers surrounding Axoneme in the midpiece and extend to variable length through the principal piece of spermatozoa. They represent about 30% of the protein portion of human spermatozoa and accordingly they are affected by any pathology that can affect protein content of spermatozoa as in presence of oxidative stress (OS).
