Identification of auto-antigens of the human sperm membrane. Open in a separate window. The micro-sperm immobilization test: Moreover, although with sequential serum samples the patterns of agglutination may change, the antigenic pattern remains unchanged. This involved the electrophoretic transfer of proteins from SDS gels to nitrocellulose sheets followed by overlay with serum antibody.
Interrelation between high levels of sperm antibodies, reduced penetration of cervical mucus by spermatozoa, and sterility in men.
Characterization of sperm antigens reacting with human antisperm antibodies.

Abstract Antibodies reacting with human spermatozoa have been detected by various immunological techniques in the sera of subfertile men. Neither the antigens detected, nor the intensity of reaction showed significant differences although there was a tendency for head-to-head agglutinating antibodies to react more strongly with the higher molecular weight antigens.
