LewisX-containing glycans on the porcine oviductal epithelium contribute to formation of the sperm reservoir.

Abstract

In many mammals, after semen deposition, a subpopulation of the sperm is transported to the lower oviduct, or isthmus, to form a functional sperm reservoir that provides sperm to fertilize oocytes. The precise molecular interactions that allow formation of this reservoir are unclear. It is proposed that binding of sperm receptors (lectins) to their… (More)
