PLoS Genet 9:e1003185. 2013..Therefore, it appears that the plug also affects post-fertilization events such as implantation and/or gestation. This study shows that a gene influencing the viscosity of seminal fluid has a major influence on male fertility...
- Identification of ejaculated proteins in the house mouse (Mus domesticus) via isotopic labelingMatthew D Dean
Molecular and Computational Biology, University of Southern California, 1050 Childs Way, Los Angeles, CA, USA
BMC Genomics 12:306. 2011..In addition to gaining insights into possible functions and fates of ejaculated proteins, our study serves as proof of concept that isotopic labeling is a powerful means to study reproductive proteins...
