Abstract

We measured swimming characteristics of bull sperm within 1000 nm film from a glass surface using total internal reflection fluorescence (TIRF) microscopy. Results indicate that in approximately 70% of the cases sperm follow counter-clockwise trajectories and the sperm head rotation is no longer observed.
