In a 129S5/SvEvBrd genetic background, males show progressive reduction in fertility with almost complete loss of fertility after 5 months of breeding. Testis weight and histology appear normal. Spermatozoa have significantly reduced forward motility. The sperm flagellum shows defective bending in the midpiece region which impairs waveform propagation and forward propulsion. Sperm ATP levels deplete significantly over time, probably as a result of excess energy consumption from inefficient flagellar beating. The ultrastructure of the flagellum has some subtle abnormalities with an enlarged space between the mitochondrial sheath and the outer dense fibers. In a mixed C57BL/6J;129S5/SvEvBrd genetic background, male fertility is not significantly affected.1 Publication

<p>The checksum is a form of redundancy check that is calculated from the sequence.
