Mammalian Reproductive Endocrinology and Regulation of Fertility:
I have been working on various aspects reproductive physiology since 1974. I have shown for the first time the mechanism of prolonged storage of spermatozoa in female genital tract in bat. We have shown for the first time the polycystic ovary syndrome-like features in the bat ovary during winter and it helps in studies on the pathogenesis of PCOS. Recently we have investigated the role of various paracrine and autocrine factors in regulating gonadal activities under normal, clinical and experimental settings. We have developed PCOS-model to study the role of GnRH, oxidative stress and inflammatory changes and adipokines in pathogenesis of PCOS. We have shown the mechanism by which obesity causes hyperandrogenism and anovulation in animal model for PCOS. We have particularly studied the role of leptin, adiponectin and resistin in ovarian folliculogenesis and steroidogenesis. The proteomic analysis of bat ovary having PCOS-like features showed increased concentration of a protein 14-3-3. Our study further showed the involvement of this protein in development of insulin resistance condition in the ovary. The 14-3-3 protein may represent a new bio-marker for adiposity associated ovarian anovulation (disorders). We have demonstrated the presence of GnRH, GnIH, and kisspeptin and their significance in testicular physiology and gonadal aging. Our further studies have investigated the mechanism responsible for the delayed embryonic development in the bat. We have recently investigated the hormonal and metabolic changes during the retarded embryonic development in C. sphinx.
