Histochemistry

Ultrastructural localization of acid phosphatase in spermatic cells of Ceratitis capitata (Diptera).


PMID 2323959

Abstract

The cytochemical study of acid phosphatase in spermatic cells of Ceratitis capitata defines the enzimatically active sites, relating this enzyme with morphological modifications of the cell components during spermiogenesis. In the axoneme, acid phosphatase is associated with the metabolism of phosphates which promote flagellar motility. The enzymatic activity verified on the cytoplasmic membranes demonstrates the importance of this enzyme in the process of cellular differentiation.
