Cross sections of the testes and the caput, corpus and cauda epididymides removed from 12 dogs were stamped on glass slides, and the sperm on the slides were stained with 6 different FITC-lectins (Con A, DBA, PNA, PSA, SBA, and WGA) to examine the characteristics of the surface glycoproteins (GPs) on canine epididymal sperm. The corpus epididymal sperm were washed three times by centrifugation, and their lectin-binding characteristics were investigated. The washed sperm from the corpus and… CONTINUE READING
