Human spermatozoa capacitated with progesterone or a long incubation show accelerated internalization by an alkyl ether lysophospholipid.


OBJECTIVE To evaluate changes that occur in sperm plasma membranes during capacitation, the internalization of [(3)H]lyso-platelet activating factor ([(3)H]lyso-PAF) across the plasma membrane of human spermatozoa was measured as a function of incubation time or exposure to progesterone (P). DESIGN In vitro cell culture study using human spermatozoa… (More)
