Involvement of selectin-like carbohydrate binding specificity in human gamete interaction.


The recognition of carbohydrate epitopes by complimentary protein receptors has been shown to be a critical factor in gamete interaction in many different animal species. In this study it was hypothesized that, in the human, gamete binding requires an interaction between selectin ligands on the zona pellucida and putative egg binding proteins on the sperm… (More)
