- Gadella B, Evans J. Membrane fusions during mammalian fertilization. Adv Exp Med Biol. 2011;713:65-80 pubmed publisher..In addition, there is a block at the level of the oolemma (also known as the membrane block to polyspermy). ..
- Gadella B. Dynamic regulation of sperm interactions with the zona pellucida prior to and after fertilisation. Reprod Fertil Dev. 2012;25:26-37 pubmed publisher..The current understanding of sperm interactions with the cumulus and ZP layers surrounding the oocyte is reviewed with a special emphasis on the lack of comparative knowledge on this topic in humans, as well as in most farm mammals. ..

Theriogenology. 2014;81:613-24 pubmed publisher..In full capacitating conditions (i.e., the presence of bicarbonate and albumin), PIPLC treatment caused sperm deterioration. The possible role of GPI-APs removal from the sperm surface during sperm capacitation is discussed. ..
