Both fertilization promoting peptide and adenosine stimulate capacitation but inhibit spontaneous acrosome loss in ejaculated boar spermatozoa in vitro



Both fertilization promoting peptide and adenosine stimulate capacitation but inhibit spontaneous acrosome loss in ejaculated boar spermatozoa in vitro



Molecular Reproduction and Development 55(1): 117-124



Fertilization promoting peptide (FPP) and adenosine have been shown previously to stimulate capacitation and inhibit spontaneous acrosome loss in epididymal mouse spermatozoa. In the present work, in order to determine whether these responses were restricted to mice or possibly common to many mammalian species the response of boar spermatozoa to FPP and/or adenosine was evaluated. FPP is found in nanomolar concentrations in seminal plasma of several mammals but not pigs.
