Semen samples with teratozoospermia show a lower percentage of spermatozoa with detectable adhesion molecules (AM).


Adhesion molecules (AM) are cell surface proteins which interact with ligands and mediate cell-cell bindings. Possibly, the AM are involved in the spermatozoal adhesion to oocytes. Human spermatozoa showed several adhesion molecules on their surface: the alpha chains of the beta 1-integrins VLA alpha 4 (CDw 49d), VLA alpha 5 (CDw 49e) and VLA alpha 6 (CDw… (More)
