Certain egg-binding proteins located on the surface of the plasma membrane of sperm have been shown to interact with proteins located on the zona pellucida.
As described in the previous section, capacitation appears to involve the unmasking of an egg-binding protein located on the plasma membrane of the sperm.
The identity of the egg-binding protein on the sperm membrane remains elusive.
In addition, once a sperm binds to the zona pellucida, ZP3 molecules are altered in a way that renders them unable to interact with egg-binding proteins.
I use analgesics before and after surgery, and with trauma, egg-binding, gastrointestinal stasis in rabbits, dental disease in small mammals, and chronic arthritis.
There are numerous situations in which I use analgesia, including surgeries (both before and after surgery), egg-binding, rabbit gastrointestinal motility disorder, rabbit and rodent dental disease, fractures, and trauma.
Further investigation into causes of egg-binding diseases, such as nutritional hypocalcemia, metritis, or age-related disease (eg, neoplasia), is indicated.
