BACKGROUND Diabetes mellitus (DM), a chronic metabolic disease, severely impairs male reproductive function. However, the underpinning mechanisms are still incompletely defined, and there are no effective strategies or medicines for these reproductive lesions. Icariin (ICA), the main active component extracted from Herba epimedii, is a flavonoid traditionally used to treat testicular dysfunction. Whether ICA can improve male reproductive dysfunction caused by DM and its underlying mechanisms are...

BACKGROUND Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a common endocrine and metabolic disease in women at childbearing age. Several circular RNAs (circRNAs) have been demonstrated to be involved in PCOS. In this study, we aimed to explore the function and mechanism of circ_0043532 in PCOS. METHODS Quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction (qRT-PCR) was performed to determine the expression of circ_0043532, miR-182 and serum/glucocorticoid regulated kinase family member 3 (SGK3). Cell proliferat...

BACKGROUND Maternal metabolic disorders are linked to reduced metabolic health and oocyte quality. Obese women are advised to lose weight before conception to increase pregnancy chances. However, as human studies show no univocal guidelines, more research is necessary to provide fundamental insights in the consequences of dietary weight loss on oocyte quality. Therefore, we investigated the impact of diet normalization or calorie restricted diet for two, four or six weeks, as preconception care ...

BACKGROUND The application of artificial oocyte activation (AOA) after intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) is successful in mitigating fertilization failure problems in assisted reproductive technology (ART). Nevertheless, there is no relevant study to investigate whether AOA procedures increase developmental risk by disturbing subsequent gene expression at different embryonic development stages. METHODS We used a mouse model to explore the influence of AOA treatment on pre- and post-implant...

BACKGROUND Pregnancies with > 1 corpus luteum (CL) display a hyperdynamic circulation and an increased risk of small-for-gestational age deliveries. Among the factors released by the CL is prorenin, the inactive precursor of renin. Since the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system (RAAS) is involved in early hemodynamic pregnancy adaptation, we linked both CL number and first-trimester concentrations of prorenin (as an indicator of RAAS activity) and the aldosterone/renin ratio (as an indicator of ...

Background null Decidualization is essential to the successful pregnancy in mice. The molecular mechanisms and effects of Aurora kinase A (Aurora A) remain poorly understood during pregnancy. This study is the first to investigate the expression and role of Aurora A during mouse decidualization. null Methods null Quantitative real time polymerase chain reaction, western blotting and in situ hybridization were used to determine the expression of Aurora A in mouse uteri. Aurora A activity was inhi...

BACKGROUND Endometriosis, the presence of active endometrial tissue outside the lining membrane of the uterine cavity, is a common disease in women of childbearing age. The ectopic endometrium has some characteristics of tumor tissue, including invasive and migratory abilities. In addition, endometriosis is associated with inflammation and reduced cellular apoptosis. METHODS Western blot analysis, qPCR, immunohistochemistry, immunofluorescence microscopy, Transwell assay, wound healing assay, an...

BACKGROUND Infertility associated with endometriosis can be explained by several non-exclusive mechanisms. The oocyte plays a crucial role in determining embryonic competence and this is particularly relevant for in vitro fertilization (IVF) outcomes. According to some authors, the morphology of oocytes could also be a non-invasive marker of oocyte quality. The aim of this study was to evaluate the relationship between endometriosis and oocyte morphology after controlled ovarian stimulation for ...
