This three-manuscript thesis focuses on the physiology and biochemistry of the fertility enzyme, Proprotein Convertase Subtilisin-Kexin type 4 (PCSK4). Efforts to develop effective, safe, and reversible methods of non-hormonal contraception especially for men have focussed either on sperm surface proteins involved in the functional maturation of sperm or on those responsible for sperm-egg interactions.
