Phosphoproteome Analysis of Capacitated Human Sperm
Before fertilization can occur, mammalian sperm must undergo capacitation, a process that requires a cyclic AMP-dependent increase in tyrosine phosphorylation. To identify proteins phosphorylatedExpand

CD9 is a tetraspan protein that associates with several beta1 integrins, including alpha6beta1. Because alpha6beta1 is present on murine eggs and interacts with the sperm-surface glycoprotein ADAM 2Expand

Isolation and Proteomic Analysis of Mouse Sperm Detergent-Resistant Membrane Fractions: Evidence for Dissociation of Lipid Rafts During Capacitation1
Abstract Mammalian sperm acquire fertilization capacity after residing in the female tract during a process known as capacitation. The present study examined whether cholesterol efflux duringExpand

Host specificity of the leaf beetle, Diorhabda elongata deserticola (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae) from Asia, a biological control agent for saltcedars (Tamarix: Tamaricaceae) in the Western United
Abstract Four species of saltcedars, Tamarix ramosissima Ledeb., Tamarix chinensis Lour., Tamarix parviflora DC., and T. canariensis Willd. and their hybrids, are exotic, invasive small trees fromExpand

CABYR, a novel calcium-binding tyrosine phosphorylation-regulated fibrous sheath protein involved in capacitation.
To reach fertilization competence, sperm undergo an incompletely understood series of morphological and molecular maturational processes, termed capacitation, involving, among other processes,Expand

Dynamic alterations of specific histone modifications during early murine development
In order to investigate whether covalent histone modifications may be involved in early embryonic reprogramming events, changes in global levels of a series of histone tail modifications were studiedExpand

Generation and in Vitro Differentiation of a Spermatogonial Cell Line
Spermatogenesis is the process by which spermatogonial stem cells divide and differentiate to produce sperm. In vitro sperm production has been difficult to achieve because of the lack of a cultureExpand

FSP95, a testis-specific 95-kilodalton fibrous sheath antigen that undergoes tyrosine phosphorylation in capacitated human spermatozoa.
Protein tyrosine phosphorylation has been associated with both capacitation and motility of mammalian sperm. During capacitation, human spermatozoa undergo tyrosine phosphorylation of aExpand

SLLP1, A Unique, Intra-acrosomal, Non-bacteriolytic, c Lysozyme-Like Protein of Human Spermatozoa1
Abstract We report the presence of a unique, non-bacteriolytic, c (chicken or conventional type) lysozyme-like protein, SLLP1, in the acrosome of human sperm. C lysozymes are bacteriolytic and canExpand

Augmentative releases of Diachasmimorpha tryoni (Hymenoptera: Braconidae) to suppress a mediterranean fruit fly (Diptera: Tephritidae) population in Kula, Maui, Hawaii
Abstract Diachasmimorpha tryoni (Cameron), a larval parasitoid, was mass-reared in the laboratory and was used to suppress a wild Mediterranean fruit fly, Ceratitis capitata (Wiedemann), populationExpand
