Seminal plasma protein adsorption by boar spermatozoa was examined using ejaculated sperm from vesiculectomized boars and seminal plasma from vasectomized boars. Sperm adsorbed 14 pg protein/sperm in 10 min. When seminal plasma proteins were radiolabeled, most of the adsorbed radiolabel was present in low M(r) proteins, particularly a 12700 M(r) protein. A 349300 M(r) seminal plasma protein was also readily adsorbed. Three radiolabeled seminal plasma proteins (307600, 165400 and 7400 M(r)) were… CONTINUE READING
