Abstract

Acid/base transporters play a key role in establishing an acidic luminal environment for sperm maturation and storage in the male reproductive tract. Impairment of the acidification capacity of the epididymis, via either genetic mutations or exposure to environmental factors, may have profound consequences on male fertility.
