Contents Mammalian sperm head -- Sperm-head formation and factors affecting it -- Post-testicular modifications and maturation events occurring in the sperm-head -- Dynamics of the acrosome -- Dynamics of the perinuclear theca -- Dynamics of the sperm nucleus -- Dynamics of the membrane system -- Dynamics of egg (oocyte) activation -- Status of sperm-head components during normal fertilization, IVF, ICSI, and round spermatid injection
Summary In humans, male infertility is caused by a number of factors such as the external environment, nutrient changes, genotoxins, and mutagens. This book discusses the events that occur in the normal sperm head and govern the structure-function relationship from the time of spermatogenesis to that of fertilization or egg activation
