Abstract

Human semen contains membranous vesicles called prostasomes. They aresecreted by the prostate gland and contain large amounts of cholesterol, sphingomyelin, and Ca2+. Prostasomes enhance the motility of ejaculated spermatozoa and are involved in a number of additional biological functions. No prostasome-like vesicles have been described in horse semen up to now. We have demonstrated the presence of prostasome-like vesicles in the equine semen and characterized them as to size, morphology, and lipid composition; we have found that they are similar to human prostasomes in many respects. We propose that these vesicles mightbe important for the fecundity of horse semen. This is of interest since the success of artificial insemination is limited by the fact thatstallion sperm barely survive cryopreservation.
