Release of acrosomal enzymes following in vitro capacitation of ejaculated rabbit spermatozoa



Release of acrosomal enzymes following in vitro capacitation of ejaculated rabbit spermatozoa



Gamete Research 2(1): 1-13



A significant release of the acrosomal enzymes arylsulphatase, beta -N-acetylhexosaminidase and hyaluronidase was observed following the incubation of ejaculated rabbit spermatozoa for 12 h in 20% rabbit serum, which induces in vitro capacitation. These spermatozoa were capable of in vivo fertilisation. Serum-treated spermatozoa remained significantly motile following the 12-h incubation; 51% underwent the acrosome reaction and were capable of fertilising 66% of the ova in vivo.
