Abstract

We previously demonstrated several nicotinic acetylcholine receptor (nAChR) subunits and associated proteins in human sperm. Here, we identified in sperm for the first time two additional nAChR-associated molecules: (1) agrin SNZ+ in human sperm localized in the posterior post-acrosomal, neck, and flagellar mid-piece regions; (2) a low-molecular weight isoform of muscle-specific receptor tyrosine kinase in human and mouse sperm localized in the flagellar mid-piece of human sperm.
