Peña, Fernando JMartin -Muño, PatriciaOrtega-Ferrusola, Cristina

The aim of this review is to present the current probes available that assess different compartments and functions of stallion spermatozoa, including assays to investigate the functionality of the membranes, nucleus and mitochondria, and to study cell signaling in this particular cell.

The potential clinical applicability of diagnostic tests based on flow cytometry will also be discussed.(AU)
