Aim:  Relaxin and insulin-like growth factor (IGF)-I have pronounced effects on the male and female reproductive tracts. The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of relaxin and IGF-I on the motility, capacitation, acrosome reaction, cholesterol efflux and utilization of glucose in porcine spermatozoa. Methods:  Swim-up separated spermatozoa that… CONTINUE READING
