The aim of this study was to determine the localization of calmodulin (CaM) in ram sperm and the possible changes during in vitro capacitation (CA) and the ionophore-induced acrosome reaction (AR). Likewise, changes in intracellular calcium levels ([Ca(2+)](i)) were also analysed by using flow cytometry. CA was induced in vitro in a medium containing BSA… CONTINUE READING
