Bull sperm heads and tails have been separated by proteolytic digestion (trypsin) and plasma membranes have been isolated, using discontinuous sucrose density gradient centrifugation. Plasma membrane bound Ca2+-ATPase is shown to be associated mostly with the tail membranes. Pyrene excimer fluorescence and diphenylhexatriene fluorescence polarization experiments indicate a more fluid lipid phase in the tail region. Differences in surface charge distribution have been found, using 1-anilinonaphthalene-8-sulfonate and Tb3+ as fluorescent probes.
