MTHFR promoter hypermethylation in testicular biopsies of patients with non-obstructive azoospermia: the role of epigenetics in male infertility
background: The causative mechanisms of male infertility are still poorly understood. Mutations in the Methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) gene have been shown to be involved in male infertility; however, other mechanisms of pathogenesis, like promoter hyper-methylation, could also play a role. Therefore, in this study we compared the methylation status of the promoter region of MTHFR in male patients with non-obstructive azoospermia (NOA) and obstructive azoospermia without anomaliesdoi:10.1093/humrep/dep194 pmid:19477879 fatcat:z3fewxs42jahzgzv6favb7h53q
