Characterization of recombinant precursor proteins of the human seminal plasma sperm motility inhibitor synthesized in insect cells.


Human seminal plasma sperm motility inhibitor (SPMI) proteins which are exclusively secreted from seminal vesicles, inhibit sperm motility. It is secreted as biologically active 52 kDa and a mixture of 71 and 76 kDa precursor forms, which are identical to semenogelin-I and II (Sg-I and Sg-II), respectively. To understand the molecular mechanism underlying… (More)
