The Identification and Characterization of an Inner Acrosomal Membrane Associated Protein, IAM38, Responsible for Secondary Sperm-Zona Binding During Fertilization
During mammalian fertilization, the exposure of the inner acrosomal membrane (IAM) after acrosomal exocytosis is essential for the secondary binding between sperm and zona pellucida (ZP) of the oocyte, a prerequisite for ...
Characterization of Karyopherin Alpha's Relationship with SubH2Bv as Acrosome-Associated Proteins in Spermiogenesis
Specialized in form and function, the sperm cell is a unique microsystem unto itself where in the cytoskeletal processes and structures of the somatic cell often find new purpose and characteristics within the sperm. ...
Identification and Development of Enzymes Associated With the Sperm Inner Acrosomal Membrane and Their Function During Fertilization
In order for mammalian fertilization to transpire, spermatozoa must transit through the female reproductive tract and penetrate the outer investments of the oocyte: the cumulus oophorus and the zona pellucida. In order ...
