Activation of protein kinase A during human sperm capacitation and acrosome reaction.

Abstract

Spermatozoa undergo a variety of changes during their life that are prerequisites to their maturation and ability to fertilize eggs. Mammalian sperm capacitation and acrosome reaction are regulated by signal transduction systems involving cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP) as a second messenger. This second messenger acts through the activation of… (More)
