They are involved in a number of biological functions such as sperm motility and immunomodulation by seminal plasma. The aim of our study was to investigate whether prostasomes play a role in the antioxidant status of seminal plasma. In cell suspensions obtained after elimination of seminal plasma by centrifugation, reactive oxygen species (ROS) as measured by luminol-enhanced… CONTINUE READING
