Sperm hyaluronidase has been implicated in sperm penetration of the extracellular matrix of the cumulus oophorus and may play a crucial role in gamete interaction and fertility in mammals. The objectives of this study were to characterize the enzyme activity of equine sperm hyaluronidase and to investigate its cellular distribution. Zymography of stallion sperm plasma membrane extracts was used to identify hyaluronidase activity in protein bands. Affinity-purified polyclonal IgG raised against… CONTINUE READING
