Theilgaard A. BMC Med. Computational inference of homologous gene structures in the human genome. Treatment of manifestations: Pregnancies may be achieved by in vitro fertilization using intracytoplasmic sperm injection ICSIan in vitro fertilization procedure in which spermatozoa retrieved from ejaculate in males with oligozoospermia or extracted from testicular biopsies in males with azoospermia are injected into an egg harvested from the reproductive partner.

It would follow that the total amount of genomic constitutive heterochromatin might influence the transcription of target genes by indirectly acting as a repository for chromatin-modifying proteins, which in turn may affect male fertility in specific genetic backgrounds.
That unique pattern provides the lone Y chromosome with pairs of genes within its own structure that can back each other up, helping to maintain its integrity.

Notably, the percentage of SRY-positive cells in the gonads may be significantly different from that of the peripheral blood cells the standard tissue used for karyotyping because the embryological origin of the latter cells is in the mesoderm, while the former cells arise extragonadally in connection with the endoderm [ 33 ].
While, for most of these genes, a dosage-dependent fertility impairment has not yet been established, it would be in good agreement with the escape from meiotic sex chromosome inactivation and related consequences on male fertility described by Royo and collaborators [ 76 ].
