Abstract :

2-Methoxyethanol (2-ME) is characterised as a toxic and teratogenic compound in which the exposure to it can lead to increased incidences of embryonic death or damage, teratogenesis, or growth retardation. Epidemiologic studies have been conducted on a certain group of populations where it was shown that 2-ME can result abnormalities from olygospermia to azoospermia. The main reason for this research was to understand how this compound could affect the ultrastructures of spermatozoa membrane and mitochondria. Therefore, an experiment has been performed on 10 samples of male rats where the first five were injected with 0.2ml of 200 mg/kg of 2-ME, 6 days per week within 2 weeks. The rest were taken as a control group and were injected with 0.2ml of physiological electrolytes for the same duration as the first group. After the experiment was over, the samples were anesthetised with chloroform to perform a necropsy where the spermatozoa were taken from the caudal epididimis and vas deferens by using a flushing method. Spermatozoa were fixed with glutaraldehyde so that the structures could be examined thoroughly and it was observed by using an electron microscope transmission. The results showed that there were differences of the ultra structures between the tested rats and the control group. The exposure could damage the plasma membrane of the head and also the middle piece and also resulted in vacuolated mitochondria at the middle piece. The conclusion is that exposure of 2- ME can cause damage in the plasma membrane and mitochondria of the rats’ spermatozoa.
