The present research deals with the investigation of post-irradiation effects of gamma-rays on rat spermatozoa. For this purpose animals were irradiated by the doses 0.5; 1.0 and 2.0 Gy, respectively. Afterwards, the functional characteristics of rat spermatozoa in the post-irradiation period up to 80 days were studied. The dose dependent correlations revealed contributes to further deepening of our knowledge concerning the regulation and proceeding of biochemical and physiological processes in the radiation modified spermatozoa at the preparatory to the fertilization stage.

Key words: spermatozoa, motility, hyperactivation, ATP-ases, local irradiation, X-ray.
