The hamster sperm acrosome contains a stable matrix complex that binds specific hydrolases and appears to regulate their release during the acrosome reaction. This complex comprises two contiguous but ultrastructurally distinct regions that are segregated to specific sites within the acrosome. In this study, we define the temporal expression, processing, and localization of major matrix proteins of 29 kDa (AM29) and 22 kDa (AM22) during spermiogenesis and post-testicular sperm maturation in the… CONTINUE READING
