The protein composition of seminal fluid, blood serum, sperm plasma membrane and flagellum of rainbow trout were analysed by SDS-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. Immunological identity between proteins of the 2 fluids and sperm components was studied using crossed immunoelectrophoresis, rocket immunoelectrophoresis and immunoblotting. Results indicate that many seminal proteins are antigenically-related to serum proteins, proteins of sperm origin are present in seminal fluid in varying… CONTINUE READING
