Abstract

Abstract Placental protein 5 (PP5), originally isolated from normal placenta (1), has recently been identified in the seminal plasma (2). We undertook a series of immunohistochemical experiments in order to find out the source of the seminal plasma PP5-immunoreactive material. Immunoperoxidase staining for PP5 was positive in the ampullar part of vas deferens and the seminal vesicle, while testis, epididymis, vas deferens, seminal vesicle, prostate and urethra were negative.
