DESCRIPTION
Also known as ZP3_RAT, Zp3, Zp-3, Zpc. Component of the zona pellucida, an extracellular matrix surrounding oocytes which mediates sperm binding, induction of the acrosome reaction and prevents post-fertilization polyspermy. The zona pellucida is composed of 3 to 4 glycoproteins, ZP1, ZP2, ZP3, and ZP4. ZP3 is essential for sperm binding and zona matrix formation. Polymers of ZP2 and ZP3 organized into long filaments cross-linked by ZP1 homodimers. Interacts with ZP1 and ZP2.
