Underlying molecular mechanism in the modulation of the ram sperm acrosome reaction by progesterone and 17ß-estradiol
Resumen: Steroid hormones progesterone (P4) and 17ß-estradiol (E2) not only have important functions in regulation of reproductive processes in mammals but also have direct effects on spermatozoa. There can be induction of the acrosome reaction in ram spermatozoa by P4 and E2 and, in the present study, there was further investigation of mechanisms underlying this effect. In a medium containing agents that increase cAMP, the presence of both P4 and E2 led to changes in the localization of proteins phosphorylated in tyrosine residues evaluated by indirect immunofluorescence. The inclusion of P4 at 1 µM in the media induced an increase in Ca2+i and mobilization in the area of the acrosome (Fluo-4 and Rhod-5 staining, respectively), an increase in ROS (H2DCFDA staining) and a substantial disruption of the acrosome (evaluated using RCA), while E2 did not have these effects. There were no effects on cAMP concentrations or PKA activity with inclusion of these hormones in the media. The inclusion of P4 at 100 pM in the media led to changes in values for sperm kinematic variables which could indicate there was an inhibition of the hyperactivation caused by agents that induce an increase in cAMP concentrations. In conclusion, results from the present study indicate that P4 and E2 promote mechanisms regulating the acrosome reaction in ram spermatozoa, however, these effects on mechanisms are different for the two hormones, and for E2, require further clarification.
