This brief animation shows an overview of the structural components of the spermatozoa.
  1. Blue - Nucleus containing male haploid genome required to combine with oocyte haploid genome to form diploid zygote.
  2. Red - Acrosome containing enzymes required to digest the zona pellucida. The acrosome develops as a highly modified golgi structure.
  3. Green - Centriole and axonema required for spermatozoa movement.
  4. Orange - Mitochondria and annulus required for energy for spermatozoa movement.
  5. Grey - Cytoplasm and plasmolemma, cell membrane containing membrane proteins for chemotaxis and binding to the oocyte zone pellucida.
