Mitochondria-related miR-574 reduces sperm ATP by targeting ND5 in aging males

Figure 2. miR-574 was upregulated in the sperm of aging males and was related to poor sperm motility. (A) The expression of miR-574 in the sperm of the natural aging model. t test was used to compare the differences between the two groups. ***p<0.001.
