The increase in zona pellucida binding caused by the exposure of cultured proximal corpus epididymidis to 2 microM-5 alpha-DHT (0.87 and 4.29 spermatozoa/egg for control and 5 alpha-DHT group respectively) was lost when 20 microM-cycloheximide was also added to the medium (0.72 spermatozoa/egg). These results were interpreted as meaning that de-novo protein… CONTINUE READING
