Genetic aspects of male infertility

Genetic abnormalities may account for 15-30% of male factor infertility. Genes and genomic regulation involved in male genital tract development, gonadal development, and function including those related to spermatogenesis may be involved with male infertility. Although many of the genetic factors are still to be elucidated and many of the predicted genetic perturbations are yet to find their place for clinical applications, it is essential to appraise the current information on genetic basis of male reproductive system disorders.
