BACKGROUND The search for Ca2+ channels residing in sperm has led to the recent cloning and characterization of a novel gene, named CatSper, which codes for a unique Ca2+ channel expressed exclusively in the testis. It plays an essential role in sperm motility, penetration into the oocyte, and ultimately in male fertility. In this study, we assessed the temporal profile of CatSper gene expression during mouse testis development and performed a semi-quantitative evaluation of expression levels… CONTINUE READING
