Sperm binding to the egg zona pellucida is mediated by complementary protein-carbohydrate interaction. This binding results in the exocytosis of the sperm acrosome, or acrosome reaction (AR). We report the effect of different neoglycoproteins (sugar residues covalently bound to bovine serum albumin) on the human sperm AR. p-Aminophenyl-N-acetyl-beta-D-glucosaminide-BSA (BSA-GlcNAc) and p-aminophenyl-alpha-D-mannopyranoside-BSA (BSA-Man) at 1 micrograms/ml were capable of inducing the greatest… CONTINUE READING
