Title: The association of D-group chromosomal translocations and defective spermatogenesis
Author: Paulsen, C. Alvin; Plymate, Stephen R.; Bremner, William J.
Abstract: D-group chromosome translocations have been associated in isolated cases with infertility in males. In this study, we demonstrated the effect of a translocated D-group chromosome on spermatogenesis as it had segregated among three male members of one family. Although the father, who carried the translocation, was obviously fertile, the effects of the translocations on his sperm were noted in the morphologic examination. This study demonstrates the need for more careful evaluation of patients with chromosomal abnormalities for effects on spermatogenesis. Furthermore, it shows the possibility of autosomal chromosomal influences on testicular function
