to survive in macrophages. Next, the investigators injected the parasites into mice that were genetically susceptible to leishmaniasis. As expected, the animals did not become sick, suggesting that the parasites had not survived. Surprisingly, thoug...
Scientists identify new sperm protein required for fertilization
...xamined in the laboratory, sperm without SED1 were unable
to bind to an egg. Further, mice without SED1 had greatly reduced fertility even though the sperm appeared normal in number and motility. These results strongly suggest that SED1 plays a critical role in the initial association between sperm and ...
