Protective roles of seminal plasma exosomes and microvesicles during human sperm cryopreservation.

Reprod Biomed Online 2022 Apr 12. Epub 2022 Apr 12.

Department of Anatomy, School of Medicine, Tehran University of Medical Sciences, Tehran, Iran; Department of Infertility, moheb yas Hospital, Tehran University of Medical Sciences Tehran, Iran. Electronic address:

Research Question: Do seminal plasma microvesicles and exosomes, as two subtypes of extracellular vesicles, exert cryoprotective properties in sperm cryopreservation?

Design: Microvesicles and exosomes isolated from normozoospermic semen samples (n = 10) by serial ultracentrifugation were determined using scanning electron microscopy, dynamic light scattering and western blot analysis. The interactions between extracellular vesicles and spermatozoa were detected using Dil labelling. Purified spermatozoa from different normozoospermic samples (n = 25) were then treated individually with exosomes or microvesicles for 1 h and subsequently cryopreserved. Read More
