In vivo sperm penetration and in vitro sperm migration tests
Two standardized techniques for in vivo and in vitro clinical evaluation of sperm migration are described. The in vivo test consists of postcoital sperm recovery, from the cervical canal and from the uterine cavity, with ...
In vitro sperm penetration through the zona pellucida of immature and in vitro matured oocytes using fresh, chilled and frozen canine semen
(ELSEVIER SCIENCE BV, 2009-01)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of sperm cryopreservation and the maturation state of the oocyte on the time course of canine gamete interaction during co-culture for periods of 1–10 h. Semen samples were ...
A scanning electron microscopy study of frozen thawed dog sperm during In vitro gamete interaction
The aim of this work was to study the effects of cryopreservation on the binding and penetration of dog spermatozoa to the zona pellucida (ZP) by scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The sperm-rich fraction of six ejaculates ...
Timing of onset of contraceptive effectiveness in Depo-Provera users: Part I. Changes in cervical mucus

Tales of the Tail and Sperm Head Aches : Changing concepts on the prognostic significance of sperm pathologies affecting the head, neck and tail
(Shanghai Institute of Materia Medica, 2012-01)
This article presents an update on the variable prognostic significance of different sperm pathologies in patients with severe male factor infertility due to morphology and motility disorders. Severe asthenozoospermia is ...
Temporal relationship between uniplant insertion and changes in cervical mucus
This study was undertaken to determine the time required by a single implant containing nomegestrol acetate to affect cervical mucus production and sperm penetration in women. All subjects were investigated and, if necessary, ...
Immunolocalization of proacrosin/acrosin in bovine sperm and sperm penetration through the zona pellucida
(ELSEVIER SCIENCE BV, 2000-03-15)
The aim of the present work was to immunolocalize acrosin in bull spermatozoa incubated for up to 6 h in capacitating culture medium (TALP-heparin), in order to study the kinetics of its release during the acrosome reaction ...
Video imaging of the sperm acrosome reaction during in vitro fertilization
(Landes Bioscience, 2011-07)
Mammalian spermatozoa become competent for fusion with oocytes while traveling through the female reproductive tract and the oocyte´s extracellular investments. Recent studies highlighted the molecular mechanism of the ...
Some aspects of stallion epididymal sperm maturation
It is clear at present that important maturation changes take place in spermatozoa in the epididymis, and that these changes confer on the sperm the ability to fertilize eggs. This process has been scarcely analyzed in the ...
