Shedding Light on Sperm Development Failure Caused by Testicular Warming

[ad_1] Left: Normal spermatogenesis in the scrotum (34°C) Right: Impaired spermatogenesis in the abdomen (38°C). Credit: NIBB Testicles of most mammals are cooled in the scrotum, and elevated testicular temperatures lead to spermatogenesis failure and male infertility. A team of researchers led by Shosei Yoshida at the National Institute for Basic Biology in Japan detailed […]

Unlocking Complex Workings of the Biological Clock

[ad_1] Research team reveals what drives the circadian rhythms in cyanobacteria. Scientists want to increase their understanding of circadian rhythms, those internal 24-hour biological clock cycles of sleeping and waking that occur in organisms, ranging from humans to plants to fungi to bacteria. A research team has examined the complex workings of cyanobacteria and can […]
