Functioni

Voltage-gated calcium channel that plays a central role in calcium-dependent physiological responses essential for successful fertilization, such as sperm hyperactivation, acrosome reaction and chemotaxis towards the oocyte.2 Publications

Activity regulationi

The CatSper calcium channel is indirectly activated by extracellular progesterone and prostaglandins following the sequence: progesterone > PGF1-alpha = PGE1 > PGA1 > PGE2 >> PGD2 (PubMed:21412338, PubMed:21412339, PubMed:26989199). The CatSper calcium channel is directly inhibited by endocannabinoid 2-arachidonoylglycerol (2AG) (PubMed:26989199). Indirect activation by progesterone takes place via the following mechanism: progesterone binds and activates the acylglycerol lipase ABHD2, which in turn mediates hydrolysis of 2AG inhibitor, relieving inhibition of the CatSper channel (PubMed:26989199). The primary effect of progesterone activation is to shift voltage dependence towards more physiological, negative membrane potentials; it is not mediated by metabotropic receptors and second messengers (PubMed:21412338, PubMed:21412339). Sperm capacitation enhances the effect of progesterone by providing additional negative shift. Also activated by the elevation of intracellular pH (PubMed:21412338, PubMed:21412339).3 Publications
