Characterization of the Intracellular Calcium Store at the Base of the Sperm Flagellum That Regulates Hyperactivated Motility1

Abstract

Hyperactivated sperm motility is usually characterized by high-amplitude flagellar bends and asymmetrical flagellar beating. There is evidence that an inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate (IP3) receptor-gated Ca21 store in the base of the flagellum provides Ca21 to initiate hyperactivation; however, the identity of the store was not known. Ca21 stores are membrane… (More)
