Physiology of seminal vesicle

The seminal vesicle in man however, is not a storage site for sperm cells. Seminal fluid and plasma are derived from the prostate gland, seminal vesicle which produces fructose, globins and phosphoryl choline that aid the nutrition and metabolism of sperm cells as they journey to the outside. The prostate gland and seminal vesicles provide alkaline medium for sperm which then neutralizes the acid medium from the epididymis as a result of accumulation of metabolites which are known to immobilize the sperm cells.
