Induction of sperm maturation in vitro in epididymal cell cultures of the tammar wallaby (Macropus eugenii): disruption of motility initiation and sperm morphogenesis by inhibition of actin polymerization

A sperm-epididymal cell co-culture was shown to be capable of inducing the in vitro maturation of spermatozoa from a marsupial species, the tammar wallaby (Macropus eugenii). This system was able […]

Characterisation of fibrous sheath and midpiece fibre network polypeptides of marsupial spermatozoa with a monoclonal antibody

In this study cytoskeletal antigens common to brushtail possum and tammar wallaby spermatozoa were characterised using a monoclonal antibody (PSA-10). Using indirect immunofluorescence, the PSA-10 antibody detected antigens predominantly associated […]
