Effect of platelet-activating factor (PAF) on stallion sperm motility, capacitation and the acrosome reaction.
The results indicate that a lower concentration of PAF enhances motility and induces capacitation of stallion spermatozoa, whereas a higher concentration ofPAF induces the acrosome reaction.

The presence of PAF receptor on the spermatozoa of 10 stallions was investigated by immunofluorescence microscopy and statistical analysis revealed that the fluorescence intensity, FI, in the postacrosomal region was significantly higher than that in any other region of stallion spermutozoa.
