From the epididymis to the egg: participation of CRISP proteins in mammalian fertilization.
Buenos Aires, Argentina. In Asian J Androl, Sep 2015
Evidence supports that other members of the CRISP family secreted in the testis (CRISP2), epididymis (CRISP3-4) or during ejaculation (CRISP3) are also involved in sperm-egg interaction, supporting the existence of a functional redundancy and cooperation between homolog proteins ensuring the success of fertilization.
Ectopic expression of Arabidopsis RCI2A gene contributes to cold tolerance in tomato.
Coimbatore, India. In Transgenic Res, Apr 2015
A motif search revealed that the motifs of photosystem II (PSII) phosphoproteins PsbJ and PsbH and reaction-center proteins PsbL and PsbK were common to cold-inducible RCI2A and peroxidase proteins RCI3A, tomato peroxidase (TPX1), TPX2, tomato ascorbate peroxidase (APX1), and horseradish peroxidase (HRP-c).
Sperm-egg adhesion and fusion in mammals.
Columbia, United States. In Expert Rev Mol Med, 2008
Additional proteins that may have nonessential yet still facilitating roles in sperm-oolemma adhesion and fusion include oolemma-anchored integrins and oocyte-expressed retroviral envelope proteins, sperm disintegrins, and sperm-borne proteins of epididymal origin such as CRISP1 and CRISP2.
