Regulation of calcium transport in bovine spermatozoa.


Calcium uptake into bovine epididymal spermatozoa is enhanced by introducing phosphate in the suspending medium (Babcock et al. (1975) J. Biol. Chem. 250, 6488-6495). This effect of phosphate is found even at a low extracellular Ca2+ concentrations (i.e., 5 microM) suggesting that phosphate is involved in calcium transport via the plasma membrane… (More)
