The reaction of spermatozoa to direct current (galvano-taxis)



The reaction of spermatozoa to direct current (galvano-taxis)



Arch. EntwMech. Org 133: 694-700



RABBIT sperm was diluted (1: 15) with balanced Ringer solution and the pH varied by glycocoll buffer. 30-120 minute tests were made using 110 volts, 17.30 milliamps. Migration to the anode and cathode was observed at pH = 7-7.2, confirming Schroder's observations (Of. A.B.A., 1: 315). Further experiments with human, bull, and ram sperm indicate that mammalian sperm always carries a negative charge.
