Selenoprotein and antioxidant genes and the risk of high-grade prostate cancer and prostate cancer recurrence.
San Francisco, United States. In Prostate, 2015
METHODS: We measured plasma selenium and genotyped 73 single nucleotide polymorphisms in TXNRD1, TXNRD2, GPX1, GPX3, GPX4, SEP15, SEPP1, SELENBP1, OGG1, and CAT among 568 men with non-metastatic prostate cancer who underwent radical prostatectomy.
Mammalian fertilization: the strange case of sperm protein 56.
New York City, United States. In Bioessays, 2009
Sperm protein 56 (sp56), a member of the C3/C4 superfamily of binding proteins, was identified nearly 20 years ago as a binding partner for mZP3 by photoaffinity cross-linking of acrosome-intact sperm.
Protein-carbohydrate interactions during fertilization.
München, Germany. In Acta Anat (basel), 1997
Sperm surface proteins known to have specific ZP and carbohydrate-binding sites including the mouse beta1, 4-galactosyltransferase and sp56, the rabbit protein Sp17, a human mannose-binding protein and several members of the spermadhesin family are presented.
Molecules involved in mammalian sperm-egg interaction.
Durham, United States. In Int Rev Cytol, 1997
Galactosyltransferase, sp56, zona receptor kinase, and spermadhesins are thought to participate in the primary binding between sperm and zp and may initiate the exocytotic release of hydrolytic enzymes in the sperm head, the acrosome reaction.
Mouse gamete adhesion molecules.
Nutley, United States. In Biol Reprod, 1992
A 56,000-Mr protein called sp56, which is located in plasma membrane surrounding acrosome-intact mouse sperm heads, is a putative primary egg-binding protein.
