    Background: The human egg coat, zona pellucida (ZP), is composed of four glycoproteins designated as zona pellucida glycoprotein-1 (ZP1), -2 (ZP2), -3 (ZP3) and -4 (ZP4) respectively. The zona proteins possess the archetypal 'ZP domain', a signature domain comprised of approximately 260 amino...

    Zona pellucida (ZP) is a glycoproteinaceous translucent matrix that surrounds the mammalian oocyte and plays a critical role in the accomplishment of fertilization. In humans, it is composed of 4 glycoproteins designated as ZP1, ZP2, ZP3 and ZP4, whereas mouse ZP is composed of ZP1, ZP2 and ZP3...

    BACKGROUND Defective sperm–zona pellucida (ZP) binding (DSZPB) is a common cause of failure of fertilization in vitro. This study was to determine if DSZPB is caused by defective pathways upstream of protein kinase A (PKA) and C (PKC), or reduced protein tyrosine phosphorylation (TP). ...
