    Roldan E, Gomendio M, Garde J, Espeso G, Ledda S, Berlinguer F, et al. Inbreeding and reproduction in endangered ungulates: preservation of genetic variation through the Organization of Genetic Resource Banks. Reprod Domest Anim. 2006;41 Suppl 2:82-92 pubmed
    ..These, together with other reproductive technologies, will offer an invaluable help in preserving the maximum of genetic diversity of these and related endangered ungulate species. ..
  2. Tourmente M, Villar Moya P, Rial E, Roldan E. Differences in ATP Generation Via Glycolysis and Oxidative Phosphorylation and Relationships with Sperm Motility in Mouse Species. J Biol Chem. 2015;290:20613-26 pubmed publisher
    ..Finally, we discuss that sexual selection could promote adaptations in sperm energetic metabolism tending to increase the usage of a more efficient pathway for the generation of ATP (and faster sperm). ..
  3. Tourmente M, Villar Moya P, Varea Sánchez M, Luque Larena J, Rial E, Roldan E. Performance of Rodent Spermatozoa Over Time Is Enhanced by Increased ATP Concentrations: The Role of Sperm Competition. Biol Reprod. 2015;93:64 pubmed publisher
    ..Thus, sperm competition may have an important role maximizing sperm metabolism and performance and, ultimately, the fertilizing capacity of spermatozoa. ..
  4. Lüke L, Tourmente M, Roldan E. Sexual Selection of Protamine 1 in Mammals. Mol Biol Evol. 2016;33:174-84 pubmed publisher
    ..In contrast, the effect of arginine content on head shape, and the possible involvement of sperm competition, was identified across all mammals. ..
  5. Vicens A, Tourmente M, Roldan E. Structural evolution of CatSper1 in rodents is influenced by sperm competition, with effects on sperm swimming velocity. BMC Evol Biol. 2014;14:106 pubmed publisher
    ..Altogether, our results suggest that sperm competition selects for a shortening of the intracellular region of CatSper1 which, in turn, enhances sperm swimming velocity, an essential and adaptive trait for fertilization success. ..

  7. Lüke L, Tourmente M, Dopazo H, Serra F, Roldan E. Selective constraints on protamine 2 in primates and rodents. BMC Evol Biol. 2016;16:21 pubmed publisher
    ..However, sexual selection on its sequence may be difficult to detect until it is identified which sperm head phenotype (shape and size) confers advantages for sperm performance in different mammalian clades. ..
