- ... One of the most striking features of the mammalian epididymis is the secretion of lysosomal enzymes (LE). These LE may play a role in sperm maturation. In the present study we investigated the activity and distribution of four LE (β-galactosidase (β-Gal), N-acetyl-β-D-glucosaminidase (β-NAG), α-mannosidase (α-Man) and β-glucuronidase (β-Glu)) in bull epididymis at two different ages (6 months and ...
