Characterisation of fibrous sheath and midpiece fibre network polypeptides of marsupial spermatozoa with a monoclonal antibody

In this study cytoskeletal antigens common to brushtail possum and tammar wallaby spermatozoa were characterised using a monoclonal antibody (PSA-10). Using indirect immunofluorescence, the PSA-10 antibody detected antigens predominantly associated […]

An ultrastructural study of the role of an extracellular matrix during normal cleavage in a marsupial, the brushtail possum

In marsupials, the mechanisms of lineage allocation into pluriblast and trophoblast are related to conceptus polarity and polarized discharge of extracellular matrix (ECM). The brushtail possum, Trichosurus vulpecula, a major […]
