    The cytoskeleton of the sperm head consists of the resistant structural proteins of the nucleus, and peri-nuclear theca which are largely responsible for shaping the nucleus and the more dynamic proteins of the microtubular cytoskeleton which as well as having a morphological function within the cell are responsible for cell signaling rpcesses. These cyteskeletal proteins include actin, varous tubulins and other proteins such as spectrin. a key event of spermatozoa involves capacitation and the acrosoma reaction (AR). the role of these proteins remains poorly understood.
