Abstract:

Seminal plasma is one of the more exotic of the body fluids. Already more than 350 different proteins of virtually every kind, performing a variety of functions, have been purified from it. However, in a vast majority of cases it is not known as to what they are doing in the seminal fluid. This talk is concerned with the properties and possible function of one such protein which we have named seminal-plasmin (SPLN) (Reddy and Bhargava 1979). It is one of the more interesting proteins as despite its small size, it performs a variety of functions many of them unrelated and some of them of possible physiological significance. A protein called caltrin (Rufo et al. 1982) described several years after the discovery of SPLN, was subsequently found to be identical with seminalplasmin (Lewis et at. 1985; Sitaram et al. 1986).
