Alterations in Membrane Permeability to Ca2+ and Their Consequences during Maturation of Mammalian Spermatozoa

Abstract

Work from this laboratory (Morton and Lardy, 1967a,b) established conditions for examination of mitochondrial function in bovine spermatozoa whose surface membranes are disrupted by shear forces, hypotonic shock, or by treatment with the polyene antibiotic filipin. Respiration of exposed sperm mitochondria, dependent upon the added oxidative substrates, supports extensive accumulation of Ca2+ (Babcock et al., 1976). Uptake of Ca2+ also occurs in rabbit sperm mitochondria exposed by hypotonic shock (Storey and Keyhani, 1973) and in bovine sperm treated with digitonin (Singh et al.,1981).
