At present the nature of these signaling complexes, their temporal and spatial activations, remains to be elucidated. Hyperactivated motility Hyperactivation is usually considered a part and an expression of the capacitation process seen in all Eutherian mammals studied. However, the regulatory pathway that finally gives rise to an increase in flagellar Ca2+ and triggers hyperactivation can operate independently from capacitation [34,35]. Hyperactivation is characterized by high-amplitude, asymmetrical flagellar bending, and assessment of hyperactivation needs parameters measured by CASA.
