Term Information [More information on sperm capacitation]

Accession
GO:0048240
Name
sperm capacitation
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
sperm activation
Definition
A process required for sperm to reach fertilization competence. Sperm undergo an incompletely understood series of morphological and molecular maturational processes, termed capacitation, involving, among other processes, protein tyrosine phosphorylation and increased intracellular calcium.
