Sperm cells have tiny bags of enzymes on their tip (the acrosome) which allow them to penetrate the ovum. My question is whether or not the process that allows sperm cells to penetrate the cell membrane is specific to ova, or if it allows them to penetrate other types of cells.

In either case, a quick description of the process would be greatly appreciated!
