Spermatogenic failure 80(SPGF80)

MedGen UID:
1824074
Concept ID:
C5774301
Disease or Syndrome
Synonym: SPGF80
 
Gene (location): DRC1 (2p23.3)
 
Monarch Initiative: MONDO:0859364
OMIM®: 620222

Definition

Spermatogenic failure-80 (SPGF80) is characterized by male infertility due to multiple morphologic abnormalities of the flagella (MMAF), including short, coiled, absent, and irregular-caliber flagella, with correspondingly reduced or absent progressive motility of sperm. Abnormalities of the sperm head have also been observed. Severe axonemal disorganization is evident on transmission electron microscopy (Zhang et al., 2021). For a discussion of genetic heterogeneity of spermatogenic failure, see SPGF1 (258150). [from OMIM]

Clinical features

From HPO
Male infertility
MedGen UID:
5796
Concept ID:
C0021364
Disease or Syndrome
The inability of the male to effect fertilization of an ovum after a specified period of unprotected intercourse. Male sterility is permanent infertility.
Oligospermia
MedGen UID:
18162
Concept ID:
C0028960
Disease or Syndrome
Reduced count of spermatozoa in the semen, defined as a sperm count below 20 million per milliliter semen.
Absent sperm flagella
MedGen UID:
1623855
Concept ID:
C4539786
Finding
Sperm cells lacking flagella.
Short sperm flagella
MedGen UID:
1623693
Concept ID:
C4539787
Finding
Sperm cells with abnormally short flagella.
Coiled sperm flagella
MedGen UID:
1611216
Concept ID:
C4539789
Finding
Sperm cells whose flagella are twisted (coiled).
Reduced progressive sperm motility
MedGen UID:
1730031
Concept ID:
C5436680
Finding
A reduced proportion of sperm that move in a straight line or large circles; alternatively, an increased proportion of sperm that move in tight circles or in some other non-linear fashion.
