When extracts of mouse testis were Western-blotted against a monoclonal antibody which reacts with calmodulin in the presence of Ca2+, all calmodulin was associated with the macromolecules of molecular weight above 50 kDa. Immuno-electron microscopy of testes using this antibody indicated that calmodulin is localized at higher density in the nucleus and cytoplasm of germ cells during the developmental phase between pachytene and round spermatid, showing the highest level just before meiotic… CONTINUE READING
