The data on cyclin A expression in various human spermatogenic disorders and its relationship to the morphology of seminiferous tubules are not well clarified. This study aimed to evaluate the immunohistochemical expression of cyclin A in testicular biopsies of different spermatogenic disorders correlating with the morphology of seminiferous tubules using morphometry tools. Immunohistochemical evaluation of cyclin A was carried out on testicular biopsies obtained from 48 infertile males (nonobstructive azoospermia) and 15 normal subjects together with using semiautomatic morphometric analysis for evaluation of seminiferous tubules. Cyclin A is expressed in 100% of normal and hypospermatogenesis groups and in 80% of maturation arrest group, with complete absence in Sertoli cell only group. In positive cases, cyclin A stained the nuclei of spermatogonia and primary spermatocytes with a higher intensity of expression in normal cases compared with infertile group. Cyclin A expression was significantly associated with the different examined morphometric parameters. Cyclin A is involved in both mitosis and meiosis of human spermatogenesis as it is expressed in spermatogonia and primary spermatocytes. Morphometry of human testis is intimately correlated with the testicular histopathology. ""Evaluation of the acrosome reaction can shed light on the fertilising competence of spermatozoa. To eliminate false-positive results when evaluating the acrosome status of human sperm cells, two viability probes propidium iodide (PI) and 7-amino-actinomycin D (7-AAD) were compared for their ability to stain nonviable cells post-fixation and permeabilisation. Both the mean fluorescence and % dead cells differed significantly with time (P?
