From the Article
“At the 58th Annual Biophysical Society Meeting, which took place Feb. 15-19, 2014, in San Francisco, Calif., the team presented its work to identify and characterize proteins known as ion channels, which are crucial for sperm fertility and expressed within a sperm cell's plasma membrane.
To study ion channels, the researchers are recording the electrical activity of sperm ion channels under strictly controlled conditions.”
Overall, the findings from this research could prove crucial in future development of new pain management therapies as well as diagnostic tests and treatments for male infertility.
