Gene Snapshot
Accessory gland protein 29AB (Acp29AB) encodes a predicted C-type lectin that is produced by the male accessory glands and transferred to females during mating. After transfer to mated females, the Acp29AB product is detected in sperm storage organs and in the hemolymph. It plays a role in retention of sperm in storage and sperm competition.

Additional Descriptive Data

Acp29AB is absent from the reproductive tracts of virgin females and females 5 min ASM (after the start of mating), but is transferred to the female reproductive tract by 7 min ASM. Acp29AB localizes to the spermathecum 1 hour after mating and is also detectable in the hemolymph of the mated female.

        Acp29AB is required for the normal maintenance of sperm in storage.

        Isolated in a screen for seminal fluid proteins.

        Gene is identified in a differential cDNA hybridisation screen.

        If females remate frequently relative to the duration of sperm storage and rate of sperm use, sperm displacement may be an important component of male reproductive success. Significant association has been found between Acp29AB mutant male sperm and the ability to resist displacement by subsequent sperm. There is no correlation between the ability to displace resident sperm and the ability to resist being displaced by subsequent sperm, this lack of correlation suggests that different mechanisms mediate that the two components of sperm displacement.

        May promote replacement of sperm already stored by a female.
