Dr. Martínez-Pastor attended the XIV Congress of the Spanish Society for Cell Biology, held in Seville from June 29th to July 1st. We have listened to some of the top cell biology researchers in Spain and to several invited foreign researchers. It has been an excellent opportunity to pick up new ideas and techniques for future work.
We presented a poster in the meeting, showing our first results in the melatonin line:
A Ledesma, E Fernández-Alegre, A Casao, J Guizzo, F Martínez-Pastor. MT1 and MT2 melatonin receptors colocalise in the neck of bull and red deer spermatozoa.
In this poster we showed, for the first time, the distribution of MT1 and MT2 receptors in the membrane of bull and deer spermatozoa. We expect to obtain more enticing results very soon.
