Essential Role of Sperm-Specific PLC-Zeta in Egg Activation and Male Factor Infertility: An Update

Sperm-specific phospholipase C zeta (PLCζ) is widely considered to be the physiological stimulus responsible for generating calcium (Ca2+) oscillations that induce egg activation and early embryonic development during mammalian fertilization. In the mammalian testis, PLCζ expression is detected at s...
