Purification and Characterization of a Sperm Motility Inhibiting Factor from Caprine Epididymal Plasma


Several studies have been reported on the occurrence of sperm motility inhibiting factors in the male reproductive fluids of different mammalian species, but these proteins have not been adequately purified and characterized.
