The acrosome reaction in sea urchin sperm is induced by a glycoprotein jelly surrounding the egg and is accompanied by changes in ion permeability of sperm plasma membrane. In an attempt to learn what membrane components are involved in the response to jelly, we have begun to reassemble sperm membrane components into artificial membranes and assay for… CONTINUE READING
