Expression of a fluorescent recombinant form of sperm protein phospholipase C zeta in mouse epididymal sperm by in vivo gene transfer into the testis.
OBJECTIVE: To use in vivo gene transfer into the testis by electroporation to express a fluorescent recombinant form of a testis-specific gene in the mature epididymal sperm of mice and thus study the pattern of gene localization. DESIGN: Controlled animal study. SETTING: Research laboratory at the University of Oxford. ANIMAL(S): Four- to 6-week-old male mice. INTERVENTION(S): Phospholipase C zeta (PLCzeta), the putative mammalian egg activation factor, was fused to enhanced yellow fluoresce...Expand abstract
