Dynamics of spermatogenesis and fertilizing ability in aneuploid male germ cells
Spermatozoa are generated through two meiotic divisions in spermatogenesis. In generally, male germ cells with aneuploidy are thought to be eliminated during meiosis, known as meiotic checkpoint. In this study, I examine the molecular mechanisms of the meiotic checkpoint and the fertilizing ability of aneuploid germ cells using genetically modified mice.


I am glad to pass through the review of this grant. I am interested in the mechanism of how fertilization, the beginning of life, occurs. Through the research in this grant, I would like to reveal the mechanism of how male germ cells with fertilizing ability are generated in the testis.
