Structure of Sperm 10.04:

Sperm is the male reproductive cell and is derived from the Greek word sperma (meaning "seed").The sperm cell consists of a head, a midpiece and a tail. The head contains the nucleus, surrounded anteriorly by an acrosome, which contains enzymes used for penetrating the female egg. The midpiece has a central filamentous core with many mitochondria spiralled around it. The tail or "flagellum" executes the lashing movements that propel the spermatocyte.
