It is now well established that mature spermatozoa harbour a rich and diverse profile of small non-protein coding regulatory RNAs… Expand BackgroundThe mammalian epididymis is responsible for the provision of a highly specialized environment in which spermatozoa… Expand The proteomic composition of extracellular vesicles (epididymosomes) secreted by the mouse epididymis has been determined by… Expand PurposeSpermatozoa undergo critical changes in structure and function during the epididymal transit. Our previous studies in the… Expand STUDY QUESTION
Is junctional adhesion molecule A (JAM-A), a sperm protein essential for normal motility, expressed in the murine… Expand Extracellular microvesicles present in the epididymal fluid have been named epididymosomes. Many epididymosome-associated… Expand A differential proteomics approach led to the identification of several novel epididymal sperm proteins. One of the novel… Expand During the epididymal maturation, spermatozoa interact with different populations of epididymosomes and sequentially acquire some… Expand During epididymal transit, spermatozoa acquire new proteins. Some of these newly acquired proteins behave as integral membrane… Expand Abstract During the epididymal transit, mammalian spermatozoa acquire new surface proteins necessary for male gamete function. We… Expand
