Original Article: Sperm Lysozyme-Like Protein 1 (SLLP1), an intra-acrosomal oolemmal-binding sperm protein, reveals filamentous organization in protein crystal form
ANDROLOGY Volume 3, Issue 4, July 2015, Pages: 756–771, H. Zheng, A. Mandal, I. A. Shumilin, M. D. Chordia, S. Panneerdoss, J. C. Herr and W. Minor Article first published online : 21 JUL 2015, DOI: 10.1111/andr.12057
The authors determined the first crystal structure of a protein that resides within the acrosome of the mammalian sperm. This protein SLLP1 exhibits a unique signature surface around the lips of the putative glycan binding groove. A computational model showed potential interacting surfaces between the conserved SLLP1 domains and its oolemmal receptor SAS1B. Mouse SLLP1 reveals filamentous organization in protein crystal form, leading to the interesting speculation that sperm cells may use tiny 'harpoons' to facilitate fertilization.

Impact Factor Announcement
Andrology has received its first Impact Factor: 2.298!
ISI Journal Citation Reports © Ranking: 2014: 4/7 (Andrology) As the merged journal only launched in 2013, we are very pleased with this result because the 2014 Impact Factor calculation only covers 2014 citations to articles published in 2013 (when, ordinarily, it would also include citations to papers published in 2012). As such, we expect the journal’s Impact Factor to increase further next year. We thank you for your support so far and would request that you continue to support the journal by submitting your best work.
