AB037. Long-term exposure to the mobile phone radiation decreased the sperm quality of Sprague Dawley rats


" The sperm concentration, sperm motility and sperm viability were significantly downregulated, and the abnormal sperm rate and sperm DNA fragmentation index were upregulated in the rats exposing to the mobile phone radiation for 150 days. The mating experiment showed that the cub weight of rats decreased after exposing to the mobile phone radiation for 150 days. The testicular malondialdehyde (MDA) and 4-Hydroxynonenal (HNE) level were upregulated whereas the superoxide dismutase (SOD), catalase (CAT) and glutathione (GSH) level were downregulated in rats exposing to the mobile phone radiation for 150 days. In addition, the protein level of Fas, FasL and the rate of cleaved-caspase-3 to pro-caspase-3 were upregulated in the testis of these rats. The hematoxylin and eosin (H&E) staining showed that the spermatogenesis was disturbed in rats exposing to the mobile phone radiation for 150 days. However, the sperm quality and spermatogenesis of rats did not significantly change after exposing to the mobile phone radiation for 100 or 50 days."
