We previously purified a boar sperm protein, sp38, and demonstrated that this protein bound to the 90-kDa family of zona pellucida (ZP) glycoprotein in a calcium-dependent manner. Sp38 competed with proacrosin for the binding to the zona pellucida. Herein we have isolated cDNA clones encoding sp38 from a boar testis cDNA library in lambda gt11. The amino… CONTINUE READING
