BACKGROUND The epididymal epithelium secretes membranous vesicles, called epididymosomes, with which a complex mixture of proteins is associated. These vesicles transfer to spermatozoa selected proteins involved in sperm maturation. Epididymosomes in the human excurrent duct have been described, but their protein composition and possible functions are unknown. METHODS AND RESULTS Epididymosomes were collected during vasovasostomy procedures, purified and submitted to liquid chromatography… CONTINUE READING
