Abstract

Background: Contractile activity of the muscular coat of the epididymis wall is considered the major driving force for the propulsion of sperm through the male reproductive tract. Methods: Region-specific changes in the status of membrane thiols and the free radical scavening potential of the male reproductive tract of the rat were observed. Results: The present study shows that the local biochemical milieu has some influence on the transport ofspermatozoa through the male reproductive tract. The vas deferens showed ahigher level of superoxide dismutase activity and a low profile of thiol exposure, Conclusion: We conclude that the strong scavenging potential and the lesser thiol exposure of the vas create an apparently inert vas lumen which facilitates the transit of spermatozoa th rough the vas.
