Recombinant human zona pellucida protein ZP3 produced by chinese hamster ovary cells induces the human sperm acrosome reaction and promotes sperm-egg fusion.


Studies on the role of specific molecules in the human fertilization process and additional assessments of potential applications for these proteins are hampered by the limited amount of available biological material. However, this drawback might be circumvented by the recent cloning of several gamete-specific genes, which opens possibilities for the… (More)
