Synthetic peptides corresponding to specific regions of the mouse acrosomal transmembrane protein cyritestin have been used as competitors in in vitro fertilization experiments. One peptide representing a putative egg-receptor binding site within the disintegrin domain of cyritestin lowered the fertilization rate to 30% of the normal value.
