Figure 3: A lipid exchange model for the delivery of GPI-linked proteins from the soluble fraction of ELF is shown. GPI-linked proteins are stabilized by lipid carriers such as CLU or Apolipoprotein J, which transports monomers to the sperm membrane and then acts as an acceptor for cholesterol which it transports to the epididymal epithelial lining for receptor-mediated endocytosis.
