As part of our studies on sperm maturity and function, we examined the head, midpiece and tail of human spermatozoa using computerized morphometry in order to determine which regions reflect the differences between mature spermatozoa and spermatozoa of diminished cellular maturity. We studied 20 men, who were divided into two groups based on their lower (LCKM: 14.6 +/- 7.0%, n = 8) and higher sperm creatine kinase (CK-M) isoform ratios (HCKM: 48.0 +/- 4.3%, n = 12) in the initial semen.
