A mammalian epididymal protein with remarkable sequence similarity to snake venom haemorrhagic peptides.

Abstract

Following spermatogenesis in the testis, mammalian spermatozoa pass into the epididymis, where they undergo changes which confer on them forward motility and the ability to recognize and penetrate the egg. Many of these maturation events involve androgen-regulated epididymal proteins which become associated with the sperm membrane, and/or effect changes to… (More)
