Abstract

We detected the presence of fructosamine in human and bovine semen. In seminal plasma of healthy normozoospermic men (N = 17) fructosamine was found in 53% of the cases (fru+). In fru+ semen samples the concentration of fructosamine was (mean ± S.E.M., N = 9) 0.45 ± 0.09 mmol/L and varied from 0.15 to 0.75 mmol/L. It was 3–12 times lower than in blood serum of healthy men. In semen of infertile men (N = 57) fructosamine was present only in 21% of the cases and its concentration was lower than in fertile men i.e. (mean ± S.E.M., N = 12) 0.27 ± 0.007 mmol/L. In bulls (N = 98) fructosamine was found in semen of 82% of animals. In fru+ semen samples the concentration of fructosamine was (mean ±S.E.M., N = 80) 0.77 ± 0.12 mmol/L and varied from 0.30 to 1.15 mmol/L. We did not find any correlation between the concentration of fructosamine on one hand, and that of fructose and glucose on the other hand, in either human or bull semen. The difference in the frequency of fructosamine appearance in semen of fertile and infertile men suggests that fructosamine may be in some way involved in the process of fertisation.
