Abstract:The purpose of this study was to compare the differently expressed proteins in testes of adult yak and bisexual yak, and provide evidence for further exploring the molecular mechanism of infertility of bisexual yak. Total proteins were extracted from the testes of normal yaks (n=4) and bisexual yak (n=1), and then separated by two-dimensional electrophoresis followed by identification of the differently expressed proteins by mass spectrometry. The well-resolved, reproducible two-dimensional electrophoresis gels of adult yak and bisexual yak testis protein were obtained. The result showed that there were 24 protein spots with two fold expression difference, and 22 of which were identified after searching in the databases. Six proteins were molecular chaperones and the expression were significantly decreased in the testis of bisexual yak, which may play an important role in spermatogenesis disorder.
