In recent years, the finding of a complete set of molecules related to the cholinergic neurotransmitter system in male gametes of different invertebrate and vertebrate species has opened the question of the possible involvement of this signaling system in the regulation of intracellular ion change, functional to sperm motility and probably also to interaction with the egg. In this work, we localized molecules immunologically related to muscarinic acetylcholine receptors (mAChRs) in sea urchin… CONTINUE READING
