For successful fertilization to occur, molecules on the surface of male and female gametes must recognize each other in a complementary manner. [...] Key Result The mannosidase had a Km of 2.36 ± 0.19 mM, a Vmax of 27.49 ± 0.88 pmol/min and a Hill coefficient of 0.94 ± 0.18 at its optimal pH of 7.0. The mannosidase was extracted most efficiently with CHAPSO but was also efficiently extracted with sodium chloride.Expand
