For example, a fucose sulfate polymer on the egg jelly of sea urchins binds to a receptor on the sperm surface, inducing the acrosome
reaction (Vacquier and Moy, 1997).
Analysis of acrosome
condition in hormone-supplemented treatments: Acrosome
condition was analyzed using the improved Coomassie Brilliant Blue (Bio-Rad, CA, USA) method described by de Leeuw et al.
galloprovincialis sperm that labeled the tip of the outer sperm acrosome
and PNA labeling of C.
vesicle is 0.25 [micro]m in length and 0.1 [micro]m in width and is homogeneous, without any evidence of stratification.
gigas, sperm acrosomes
were morphologically damaged at higher UV intensities (Li et al.
The head, bearing the acrosome
at the apex, gradually leads to a thin, ribbon-like tail.
Shortly after sperm binding, the sperm acrosome
opened, exposing the membrane-bound axial rod.
castaneus sperm have the long needlelike nuclear filament and reduced acrosome
that characterizes all Chitonida, but they have retained several plesiomorphic features such as an unspecialized mid-piece and a lack of flagellar reinforcement.
After their nucleus condenses and is covered by an acrosome
cap, elongated spermatids differentiate into spermatozoa, followed by their release into the lumen of the seminiferous tubule.
Effects of cryopreservation on human sperm acrosomes
ABSTRACT: Effect of two antioxidants (Taurine and Manganese) in extender on different sperm parameters (sperm motility, live sperm percentage, membrane and acrosome
integrity) of Sahiwal bulls was evaluated.
To explain the absence of acrosome
in globozoospermia, Dam et al .
