Changes of murine sperm phospholipid composition during epididymal maturation determined by MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry.


After leaving the testis, spermatozoa undergo several important steps of biochemical maturation during the passage through the epididymis, increasing their motility and fertilizing ability. These changes comprise (among others) the modification of the phospholipid composition of the sperm membrane. This process is thought to be important for the achievement… (More)
