Brief description Diagnosis of the precise causes of male infertility and the development of male contraceptives requires improved understanding of sperm function. The Cysteine-Rich Secretory Proteins (CRISPs) are produced in the male reproductive tract where they regulate sperm function. Our project will demonstrate the essential requirement for CRISPs in sperm function and investigate their role in other tissues of the reproductive tract, including the prostate where they may be involved in prostate cancer.
