  • Sertoli
  • PFOS induces Sertoli cell injury using testicular cells isolated from rodent testes, but it remains unknown if PFOS has similar effects in humans. (popcouncil.org)
  • gene
  • Testis-determining factor (TDF), also known as sex-determining region Y (SRY) protein, is a DNA-binding protein (also known as gene-regulatory protein/transcription factor) encoded by the SRY gene that is responsible for the initiation of male sex determination in humans. (wikipedia.org)
  • Testis specific 10 is a protein that in humans is encoded by the TSGA10 gene. (wikipedia.org)
  • Testis expressed 15 is a protein that in humans is encoded by the TEX15 gene. (wikipedia.org)
  • The TEX15 gene displays testis-specific expression, maps to chromosome 8, contains four exons and encodes a 2789-amino acid protein. (wikipedia.org)
  • In mice, disruption of an ortholog of the TEX15 gene caused a drastic reduction in testis size and meiotic arrest in males. (wikipedia.org)
  • The testis-enhanced gene transfer (TEGT) family (TC# 1.A.14) is part of the TOG superfamily and includes members represented in all three domains of life. (wikipedia.org)
  • They include the testis-enhanced gene transfer proteins of mammals, which are expressed at high levels in the testis, the putative glutamate/aspartate binding proteins of plants and animals, the YccA protein of Escherichia coli and the YetJ protein of Bacillus subtilis. (wikipedia.org)

  • This gene represents one of a cluster of six similar genes located on the q arm of chromosome X. The genes in this cluster encode members of the cancer/testis (CT) family of antigens, and are distinct from other CT antigens. (wikipedia.org)
  • testicles
  • Presence of undescended testes is differentiated from absence of testicles by measuring the amount of gonadotropin hormone in the blood. (encyclopedia.com)
  • sperm
  • When the blood-testes barrier is breached, and sperm enters the bloodstream, the immune system mounts an autoimmune response against the sperm, since the immune system has not been tolerized against the unique sperm antigens that are only expressed by these cells. (wikipedia.org)
  • The anti-sperm antibodies generated by the immune system can bind to various antigenic sites on the surface of the developing sperm within the testes. (wikipedia.org)
  • Male
  • If the parent notices that their male infant's testes do not appear normal or do not appear to be present at all, the parent should alert the doctor. (encyclopedia.com)
  • In case of a single testis replacement, the patient never faces any problem as the second one produces both the male hormone and sperms. (hindustantimes.com)
  • In case of a double testis replacement, the patient needs male hormone injection in due intervals," said Gupta, who is also chief of the SAARC paediatric surgeons' association. (hindustantimes.com)
  • blood
  • In the case of absence, it is possible that the testes never developed at all because the blood flow was cut off to them as they were developing, preventing their formation. (encyclopedia.com)
  • This composition is maintained by blood-testis barrier. (wikipedia.org)
  • source
  • Uma série de técnicas de priorização, recursos baseados em software open source e ferramentas na nuvem podem resolver todas essas questões e elevar seus testes a outro nível. (infoq.com)
  • doctor
  • If the testes have not descended by the time the child is six months of age, the parent should call the doctor to begin discussing possible treatment options. (encyclopedia.com)
  • The doctor said inter-sex patients have both underdeveloped testis and an ovary. (hindustantimes.com)
  • Body
  • Though we sterilise it (artificial testis) twice before inserting inside the body of the patient, yet we carry out a number of tests and observe the acceptance per cent of patients over four days," Gupta explained, adding that patients from all parts of the country are coming for this treatment.

  • present
  • If the testes did not descend because they are absent, then the likely cause is different than for testes that are present but did not descend. (encyclopedia.com)
  • If the testes are present at all, they can be anywhere within a couple inches of the appropriate spot. (encyclopedia.com)
