Flagella antigens from sperm of Fucus serratus have been used to raise antibodies in rabbits. The immunoglobulin G fraction inhibits fertilization with some degree of species specificity. The antigens detected on sperm are not present on unfertilized egg membranes, but appear after fertilization. The common antigens on the fertilized egg can be distinguished from the cell wall material that is also released on fertilization.
