Proteins that bind to sperm offer clues to male fertility and possible male contraception
...E2 family are secreted in the epididymis, a coiled tubular
network several yards long attached to the top of each testicle. As they mature, sperm pass through the epididymis and into another tube, the vas deferens, before emptying through the urethra during ejaculation. Compared to the testes, the epididymi...
