Rat seminal vesicle secretion does not demonstrate protein kinase activity, either towards endogenous or exogenous proteins. When epididymal sperm were incubated in vitro with seminal vesicle secretion, three prominent secretory proteins were bound to the sperm. Two of these proteins were highly phosphorylated. Thus, selected sperm-binding proteins from accessory gland secretions are phosphorylated by sperm surface protein kinases.
