Calyculin A, protein phosphatase inhibitor, enhances capacitation of human sperm.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE To examine the effects of protein phosphatase inhibitors on capacitation and protein phosphorylation in human sperm. DESIGN The chlortetracycline (CTC) fluorescence assay was used to monitor capacitated sperm treated with or without protein phosphatase inhibitors. Capacitation was confirmed by the ability of sperm to undergo the acrosome… (More)
