Membrane oxidoreductase on sperm?

Currentideas about the role of reactive oxygen species in mediating
(human) sperm dysfunction seem to centre on the excess sperm cytoplasm and
membrane-bound NADH-dependant oxidoreductase.  PMOR has been found in all
eukaryotic cells studied so far (see Larm et al 1994 J Biol Chem 269:
30097-30100).

 However, has anyone yet demonstrated that this enzyme exists on the sperm?
