Direct gene delivery to murine testis as a possible means of transfection of mature sperm and epithelial cells lining epididymal ducts

Reproductive Medicine and Biology
Masahiro Sato


The use of a sperm cell to introduce exogenous DNA into an oocyte at the time of fertilization is of interest for the simple production of transgenic mice, and is now called 'sperm-mediated gene transfer (SMGT)'. In vivo transfection of sperm cells has been developed as an alternative method for SMGT and can be carried out by direct gene delivery into an interstitial space in a testis (now called 'testis-mediated gene transfer [TMGT]'), into the vas deferens, or into seminiferous tubules. This review summarizes what has been achieved in the field of in vivo gene transfer using sperm cells. (Reprod Med Biol 2006; 5: 1-7).

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Synthetic Genetic Array Analysis

Synthetic genetic arrays allow the systematic examination of genetic interactions. Here is the latest research focusing on synthetic genetic arrays and their analyses.

Congenital Hyperinsulinism

Congenital hyperinsulinism is caused by genetic mutations resulting in excess insulin secretion from beta cells of the pancreas. Here is the latest research.
