Summaries for Spermatogenic Failure 6

NIH Rare Diseases : 54 Globozoospermia is a rare form of male infertility. Men affected by this condition have abnormal sperm with a round (rather than oval) head and no acrosome (a cap-like covering which contains enzymes that break down the outer membrane of an egg cell). As a result of these abnormalities, the sperm are unable to fertilize an egg cell, leading to male factor infertility. Approximately 70% of men with globozoospermia have changes (mutations) in the DPY19L2 gene, which are inherited in an autosomal recessive manner. In the remaining cases, the underlying cause of the condition is unknown; however, researchers suspect that mutations in other genes likely cause globozoospermia. Although there is currently no cure for the condition, certain assisted reproductive technologies (ICSI combined with assisted egg cell activation, specifically) can help men affected by the condition conceive children.

MalaCards based summary : Spermatogenic Failure 6, also known as globozoospermia, is related to spermatogenic failure 9 and male infertility with teratozoospermia due to single gene mutation. An important gene associated with Spermatogenic Failure 6 is SPATA16 (Spermatogenesis Associated 16). Affiliated tissues include Testis, and related phenotypes are infertility and globozoospermia

Disease Ontology : 12 A male infertility characterized by autosomal recessive inheritance of globozoospermia that has material basis in mutation in the SPATA16 gene on chromosome 3q26.

Genetics Home Reference : 26 Globozoospermia is a condition that affects only males. It is characterized by abnormal sperm and leads to an inability to father biological children (infertility).

OMIM : 58 Spermatogenic failure-6 is a form of male infertility with globozoospermia. The acrosome is a unique structure of the mature spermatozoon, which plays an important role at the site of sperm-zonapellucida binding during the fertilization process. Globozoospermia (also called round-headed spermatozoa) is a human infertility syndrome caused by spermatogenesis defects (Lalonde et al., 1988, Singh, 1992). The most prominent feature of globozoospermia is the malformation of the acrosome and, in the most severe cases, the acrosome is totally absent. Globozoospermia is also characterized by abnormal nuclear shape as well as abnormal arrangement of the mitochondria of the spermatozoon (Battaglia et al., 1997). For a discussion of phenotypic and genetic heterogeneity of spermatogenic failure, see SPGF1 (258150). (102530)

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot : 76 Spermatogenic failure 6: An infertility disorder caused by spermatogenesis defects. The most prominent feature is the malformation of the acrosome, which can be totally absent in most severe cases. Additional features are an abnormal nuclear shape and abnormal arrangement of the mitochondria of the spermatozoon.
