Epithelial glycoproteins are likely to be important in many aspects of reproduction. The rabbit oviduct produces mucus glycoproteins. This is indicated both by histochemistry and by gelation of a mucus coat around the rabbit ovum during its tubal transport. We report here that the production of highly acid mucus glycoprotein (apparently of the type that coast the ovum) is confined to the isthmus and, to a lesser extent, the mucosal crypts of the ampullary-isthmic junction; the ampulla is not… CONTINUE READING
