Male reproductive glands secrete signals into seminal fluid to facilitate reproductive success. In Drosophila melanogaster, these signals are generated by a variety of seminal peptides, many produced by the accessory glands (AGs). One epithelial cell type in the adult male AGs, the secondary cell (SC), grows selectively in response to ...

Although there is growing evidence that birds may have individual chemical profiles that can function in several social contexts, offspring recognition based on olfactory cues has never been explored. This ability should be more likely evolved in colonial birds and/or species suffering brood parasitism, in which the risk of being ...

Aneuploidy in human eggs increases with maternal age and can result in infertility, miscarriages, and birth defects. The molecular mechanisms leading to aneuploidy, however, are largely unknown especially in the human where eggs are exceedingly rare and precious. We obtained human eggs from subjects ranging from 16.4 to 49.7 years ...

OBJECTIVES: Despite ample evidence of variation in timing of menopause, little is known about the extent or underlying causes of individual variation in ovarian reserve and age-related follicular decline. Anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH), a hormonal marker of ovarian reserve, may be a useful tool to clarify these questions. We describe AMH ...

AIM: To assess age at which median follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) is elevated above 10 U/L. BACKGROUND: Fertility and ovarian reserve decrease over the 4th decade with evidence that sensitive markers such as anti-Mullerian hormone fall even earlier. Despite its limitations, a basal or day 2-3 FSH is commonly used to assess ...

Life history models suggest that biological preparation for current versus longer term reproduction is favored in environments of adversity. In this context, we present a model of reproductive aging in which environmental adversity is proposed to increase the number of growing follicles at the cost of hastening the depletion of ...

BACKGROUND Live birth per cycle and live birth per embryo transfer are commonly used outcome measures for IVF treatment. In contrast, the assessment of the reproductive efficiency of human oocytes fertilized in vitro is seldom performed on an egg-to-egg basis. This approach may however gain importance owing to the increasingly ...

Although several lines of evidence have indicated that menopause is associated with increased susceptibility to neurological disorders, the mechanisms involved in this phenomenon remain to be elucidated. Because neuroinflammation is a common feature of a number of brain diseases, we hypothesized that the cessation of ovarian functions and the consequent ...

The females of several internal fertilizers are able to store sperm for a long time, reducing the risk of sperm limitation. However, it also means that males can attempt to mate outside females' receptive period, potentially increasing the level of sperm competition and exacerbating sexual conflict over mating. The guppy ...

The ovarian aging, a dynamic process that precedes the clinical manifestations of menopause, can be assessed using ovarian reserve biomarkers. It is well-known that reproduction during the later years of reproductive life has known limitations that challenge the success of assisted reproduction. Therefore, a review of the neuroendocrine modifications during ...

We hypothesized that body mass index (BMI) and DNA variants would predict age at menarche in polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). Subjects aged 18-45 years with PCOS defined by the National Institutes of Health criteria (n=522) and controls with regular menstrual cycles and no hyperandrogenism (n=472) were studied. Age at menarche ...

Recent evidence suggests that urinary F(2)-isoprostanes (F(2)-IsoPs) are more accurate markers of oxidative stress than other available biomarkers. Most previous studies used unmetabolized F(2)-IsoPs as a biomarker. Few previous studies measured 15-F(2t)-IsoP-M, a metabolite of one of the most common F(2)-IsoPs, 15-F(2t)-IsoP. Unlike 15-F(2t)-IsoP, 15-F(2t)-IsoP-M is not subject to autoxidation ...
