Seminal fluids introduced to the female reproductive tract at mating can affect subsequent events, such as ovulation, fertilization, conception, and pregnancy. Bioactive molecules present in seminal plasma can modify the cellular composition, structure, and function of local tissues and of tissues distal to the tract. The oviduct plays a decisive role in reproduction providing a beneficial milieu for gamete maturation, fertilization, and early embryonic development. Therefore we have… CONTINUE READING
