Oviduct epithelial annexins have been suggested to immobilize bovine sperm (by binding bovine sperm proteins BSP; Ignotz et al. 2007). Annexin A2 has also been proposed to be involved in sperm-oviduct binding in the sow (Teijero et al. 2009). S. M. Gadella Sirard 1998). Catalases that secreted from oviduct may protect sperm from peroxidation damage as is demonstrated in the cow (Lapointe et al. 1998). The interplay of varying glycoproteins at the surface of sperm and oviduct epithelia or oviductal fluid as well as the varying amounts and composition of glycosidases probably orchestrate proper sperm activation just around ovulation in the pig (Carrasco et al.

2005; Holt et al. 2007. See Fig. 1).
