35) Therefore, it can be concluded that redox activity plays a role in capacitation events such as progressive motility.
Cholesterol also plays a crucial function in altering spermatozoa plasma membrane permeability/fluidity, which may affect its capacitation and fertilization.
Seminal plasma proteins inhibit in vitro- and cooling-induced capacitation in boar spermatozoa.
This could explain why many functional genes involved in sperm motility, capacitation, and acrosome reaction were found highly expressed in MAG tissue.
2+], and capacitation status--were apparently unaffected (Figures 1 and 2).
Non-formal media education actions also help to complement projects for professional capacitation with the goal of social-economic integration of recipients, as well as establishing a defense of their rights and capacitation, with the adoption of abilities and useful skills to develop themselves as citizens and rightful workers.
The reactive oxygen species interacted with the sperm plasma membrane for normal hyper-activation and capacitation of sperm; however, the higher concentration of antioxidants in extender blocked the normal physiological function of free radicals (Roca et al.
2014), allowing a better understanding of maturation, fertilization, sperm capacitation, embryo development and their regulatory mechanisms (COY & ROMAR, 2002).
The ROS, under physiological conditions, play important roles in different processes necessaries for sperm maturation and function, such as capacitation, hyperactivation, acrosome reaction and sperm-oocyte fusion, allowing proper fertilization process [19, 21, 40].
