Carbohydrate Metabolism of Cock Spermatozoa

Abstract

GLYCOLYSIS in spermatozoa of mammalian species has been much studied. These investigations, extensively reviewed by Mann1, have demonstrated that mammalian spermatozoa utilize fructose, glucose and mannose ; anaerobically, they degrade these sugars to lactic acid, deriving from this process the energy necessary for motility.
