The presence of heparan sulfate in the mammalian oocyte provides a clue to human sperm nuclear decondensation in vivo.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Previous results from our laboratory have led us to propose heparan sulfate (HS) as a putative protamine acceptor during human sperm decondensation in vivo. The aim of this paper was to investigate the presence of glycosaminoglycans in the mammalian oocyte in an effort to better support this contention. METHODS Two experimental approaches are… (More)
