In somatic cells, caveolin-1 plays several roles in membrane dynamics, including organization of detergent-insoluble lipid rafts, trafficking of cholesterol, and anchoring of signaling molecules. Events in sperm capacitation and fertilization require similar cellular functions, suggesting a possible role for caveolin-1 in spermatozoa. Immunoblot analysis demonstrated that caveolin-1 was indeed present in developing mouse male germ cells and both mouse and guinea pig spermatozoa. In mature… CONTINUE READING
