Use of failed-fertilized oocytes for diagnostic zona binding purposes after sperm binding improvement with a modified medium
Purpose: Because the availability of prophase oocytes for zona binding testing is limited, we compared sperm binding to the zona of failed- fertilized intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) and in vitro fertilization (IVF) ...
Defining bioassay conditions to evaluate sperm/zona interaction: Inhibition of zona binding mediated by solubilized human zona pellucida
Objective: Our goal was to study the influence of solubilized human zonae pellucidae on zona binding potential and acrosome reaction. Materials and Methods: Zona pellucida (ZP) solutions were prepared by dissolving zona ...
Inhibition of G protein in human sperm and its influence on acrosome reaction and zona pellucida binding
Objective: To evaluate human sperm acrosomal status, zona pellucida (ZP)-binding capacity, and sperm motion characteristics after treatment with pertussis toxin followed by exposure to increasing concentrations of solubilized ...
