Hyperactivation is a concomitant of eutherian sperm capacitation, characterized by the development of high amplitude flagellar waves with a corresponding increase in velocity. In humans, kinematic values have been derived which describe the movement characteristics of spermatozoa analysed at 30 images/s. However, these values are frame rate-dependent, and modern computer-aided sperm analysis (CASA) instruments used for studying sperm movement now use 60 images/s. This study used first… CONTINUE READING
