Evaluation of acid phosphatase isoenzymes in seminal fluid from normozoospermic oligozoospermic azoospermic and asthenoteratozoospermic men


Andrologia 17(6): 598-604
Evaluation of acid phosphatase isoenzymes in seminal fluid from normozoospermic oligozoospermic azoospermic and asthenoteratozoospermic men
Acid phosphatase was measured in the semen of normozoospermic, oligozoospermic, azoospermic and asthenoteratozoospermic men: there was no significant difference between oligozoospermic and control groups whereas we observed an increase in enzyme levels in the azoospermic group and a reduction in the asthenoteratozoospermic subjects. Furthermore, and isoelectric focusing method for the separation of isoenzymes was developed. Only prostatic isoenzymes 2 and 4 were found in semen. Isoenzyme 2 sialylation profile was determined in the four groups. The sperm count did not influence this profile. These findings are discussed.
