Head birefringence properties are associated with acrosome reaction, sperm motility and morphology.


Birefringence in sperm heads reflects an organized and very compacted texture, indicating nuclear and acrosomal structural normality. This study performed a direct analysis of the acrosome integrity in single spermatozoa to verify whether a pattern of total or partial head birefringence reflected the acrosome status. The morphology in fresh samples was… (More)
