Induction of human sperm chemotaxis is an established phenomenon, though signaling systems physiologically involved have not been identified. Recently, it has been demonstrated that RANTES is present in the follicular fluid and that this molecule is a chemoactractant for human spermatozoa. However, the presence of ß‐chemokine receptors on human spermatozoa has never been reported. By cytometric, Western blotting and immunofluorescence analysis, we demonstrate the presence of CCR5 and CCR3 on… 
Beta-chemokine receptor CCR5 in human spermatozoa and its relationship with seminal parameters.
TLDR
The percentage of CCR5-positive spermatozoa may vary under conditions associated with changes in membrane architecture and spermatozosa showed large intracellular pools of the receptor.
A Role for the Chemokine Receptor CCR6 in Mammalian Sperm Motility and Chemotaxis
TLDR
The data indicate that chemokine ligand/receptor interactions in the male and female genital tracts promote sperm motility and chemotaxis under non‐inflammatory conditions and might find application in clinical reproduction and/or contraception.
Different locations of RANTES and its receptors on mouse epididymal spermatozoa.
TLDR
RANTES and its receptors were not in the same sperm location, suggesting that RANTES binding to mouse epididymal spermatozoa is independent of CCR1, CCR3 and CCR5.
RANTES and human sperm fertilizing ability: effect on acrosome reaction and sperm/oocyte fusion.
TLDR
Results indicate a negative interference of high levels of RANTES on the sperm fertilizing ability, thereby suggesting a potential contribution of this chemokine to subfertility associated with endometriosis and genital tract inflammatory diseases.
HIV-1 viral DNA is present in ejaculated abnormal spermatozoa of seropositive subjects.
TLDR
Molecular evidence is reported demonstrating that HIV-1 infected subjects can ejaculate small amounts ofAIDS-1 DNA-positive abnormal spermatozoa, and their possible role in HIV- 1 sexual transmission remains to be clarified.
Receptors in spermatozoa: are they real?
TLDR
The receptors for well-known hormones, growth factors, and neurotransmitters that have been reported in the literature are reviewed and their authenticity and physiologic relevance will be discussed.
Immunomodulatory effects of chemokines during the early implantation window.
TLDR
This work analyzes data from both fertile women and patients having experienced recurrent spontaneous abortions as representative of physiological and pathological situations respectively for chemokines expression levels and regulation on three different levels.

Decreased Toll-like Receptor (TLR) 2 and 4 Expression in Spermatozoa in Couples with Unexplained Recurrent Spontaneous Abortion (URSA).
Studies have shown that toll-like receptors (TLRs) play some important roles in reproductive processes such as ovulation, spermatogenesis, sperm capacitation, fertilization, and pregnancy to the best

Detection of a short CCR5 messenger RNA isoform in human spermatozoa.
TLDR
Using reverse transcription and real-time quantitative polymerase chain reaction (RQ-PCR) analysis, it is found that the CCR5 mRNA isoform in human spermatozoa consists of exons 3 and 4, and is shorter than the transcript in leukocytes.
The effect of RANTES on human sperm chemotaxis.
TLDR
It was demonstrated that mRNA for the RANTES receptors CCR-1 and CCR -5 are present in human sperm and RantES is involved in the chemotactic effect of FF in vitro.
HIV-1 chemokine co-receptor CCR5 is expressed on the surface of human spermatozoa
TLDR
It is demonstrated, by cytometric analysis and immunofluorescence microscopy, the presence of β-chemokine receptor 5 (CCR5) on the periacrosomal region of ejaculated spermatozoa may allow sperm to act as virion cellular carriers during the sexual transmission of HIV-1 infection.
Cellular localization of the chemokine receptor CCR5. Correlation to cellular targets of HIV-1 infection.
TLDR
It is suggested that CCR5+ cells are recruited to inflammatory sites and, as such, may facilitate transmission of macrophage-tropic strains of HIV-1.
Mammalian sperm chemotaxis and its association with capacitation.
TLDR
It was found that only a small fraction of a given sperm population is chemotactically responsive and that this fraction constitutes capacitated (ripe) spermatozoa, and the role of the continuous replacement of chemotactic/capacitated spermatozosa is to prolong the time during which capacitated spermutozoa are available in the female reproductive tract.
Expression of a Functional Eotaxin (CC Chemokine Ligand 11) Receptor CCR3 by Human Dendritic Cells1 2 3
TLDR
It is postulated that expression of CCR3 may underlie situations where both DCs and eosinophils accumulate in vivo, such as the lesions of patients with Langerhans cell granulomatosis.
Sperm from a variety of mammalian species express beta1,4-galactosyltransferase on their surface.
TLDR
Results demonstrate that various mammalian species express GalTase on their surface and that it is found in the proper location to bind to the zona pellucida.
Sperm chemotaxis.
TLDR
The physiological role of sperm chemotaxis in non-mammalian species appears to differ from that in mammals, and the claim that progesterone is the attractant for human spermatozoa has failed to be substantiated, neither have claims for other mammalian sperm attractants been verified.
Chemokines and human reproduction.
Chemotaxis of Capacitated Rabbit Spermatozoa to Follicular Fluid Revealed by a Novel Directionality-Based Assay1
TLDR
It is concluded that rabbit spermatozoa, like human spermatoza, are chemotactically responsive to FF factor(s) and acquire this responsiveness as part of the capacitation process.
