The acrosome reaction in mouse is triggered by a long-lasting calcium signaling produced by a chain of openings of several calcium channels, a low-voltage-activated (LVA) calcium channel, an inositol trisphosphate receptor (IP(3)R), and the store-operated calcium channel TRP2. Since mature sperm cells are refractory to patch clamp experiments, we study the… CONTINUE READING
