Abstract

A previous failure to detect DNase activity in human sperm sonicates was ascribed to an inadequate amount of sperm used. In the present work aliquots contained more sperm (1.5-2.5/10(6)), permitting the detection of enzyme activity. The latter was significantly higher in spermatozoa of oligozoospermic origin compared with activity in normospermic specimens.
