The acrosome reaction is a prerequisite for zona pellucida penetration by mammalian spermatozoa. In some species, the sperm undergo the acrosome reaction before binding to the zona pellucida, and in other species only acrosome-intact sperm can initiate binding to the zona. In the present investigation, we addressed the question whether acrosome-intact or acrosome-reacted boar sperm initiate binding to the pig zona pellucida by studying the acrosomal status of sperm bound to zonae pellucidae… CONTINUE READING
