This study has assessed the effect of zinc on human sperm motility and the acrosome reaction in vitro. Progressively motile human sperm were selected by swim-up and by glass bead columns and then incubated in a medium in which capacitation happened in an asynchronous way. Different doses of zinc (1, 10, 100 and 1000 microM) were added for periods of 2, 4 or 6 h. Other samples were incubated with zinc (1000 microM), and after 1 h incubation, the zinc was removed. Aliquots of each culture were… CONTINUE READING
