Semenogelin I and II (Sgs) are the major component of human semen coagulum. The protein is rapidly cleaved after ejaculation by a prostate-specific antigen, resulting in liquefaction of the semen coagulum and the progressive release of motile spermatozoa. Sgs inhibit human sperm motility; however, there is currently no information on its effect on the sperm membrane. This study investigated the role of Sgs on human sperm motility through regulation of membrane potential and membrane… CONTINUE READING
