Ion Channels in Sperm Physiology, Male Fertility and Infertility
Journal of Andrology, 03/23/2012
Shukla KK et al. – Sodium voltage gated channels could play a crucial role in the non–capacitated sperm and in the initial capacitation steps. The role of ion channels seems indispensable for sperm fertility as evident from studies on animal models; however, the functional defects in infertile human males await further exploration. The present article brings an update on the role of ion channels in sperm physiology, male fertility and infertility.
