The semenogelins: proteins with functions beyond reproduction?

Jonsson, Magnus LU orcid ; Lundwall, Åke LU and Malm, Johan LU (2006) In Cellular and Molecular Life Sciences 63(24). p.2886-2888
Abstract
The coagulum proteins of human semen, semenogelins I and II, are secreted in abundance by the seminal vesicles. Their function in reproduction is poorly understood as they are rapidly degraded in ejaculated semen. However, more recent results indicate that it is time to put the semenogelins in a broader physiological perspective that goes beyond reproduction and fertility.
