Na+/K+ATPase as a signaling molecule during bovine sperm capacitation.

Abstract

A heteromeric integral membrane protein, Na+/K+ATPase is composed of two polypeptides, alpha and beta, and is active in many cell types, including testis and spermatozoa. It is a well-known ion transporter, but binding of ouabain, a specific inhibitor of Na+/K+ATPase, to Na+/K+ATPase in somatic cells initiates responses that are similar to signaling events… (More)
