Glycodelin-A is a human amniotic fluid-derived glycoprotein with contraceptive and immunosuppressive activities. An immunoreactive form of glycodelin was detected in seminal plasma over a decade ago, but definitive characterization of this glycoprotein was not pursued. We considered it unlikely that the seminal plasma of fertile men would contain an appreciable amount of contraceptive glycodelin-A. To address this issue we purified seminal plasma glycodelin (glycodelin-S) and performed… CONTINUE READING
