In the large vacuole group, normal-shaped sperm exhibiting large vacuoles with a diameter of ›1.5 mm were selected from the sperm drop and then injected into mouse oocytes in a drop of HEPES-HTF medium
suggest that Franco et al., (2008) may have detected not only spontaneous DNA damage, but also ‘potential’ DNA damage caused by denaturation. Using sperm fixed with paraformaldehyde
