Abstract

Background: A notable proportion of idiopathic male infertility cases is accompanied by oligozoospermia; and yet, the molecular mechanisms of fertilization problem underlying this defect are still unclear. Epithelial cadherin has been involved in several calcium-dependent cell-to-cell adhesion events; however, its participation in gamete interaction has also not been fully investigated.
