Abstract

Rooster sperm is sensitive to cooling, which restricts procedures to store sperms for extended periods of time for artificial insemination of commercial flocks. This study was conducted to evaluate the suitability of adding L-carnitine (LC) to chilled-storage of rooster sperm and its effects on...

Abstract

Rooster semen cryopreservation is not efficient for artificial insemination in breeder flocks. l-Carnitine (LC) has been evaluated for effectiveness in cryopreservation media on the characteristics of rooster sperm after freeze-thawing. Motility characteristics, membrane functionality, abnormal...

Abstract

Supplementation of the semen extender with antioxidants did not produce any significant effect on CASA and progressive motilities and sperm motility characteristics, in comparison to the control group (P>0.05). For sperm acrosome and total abnormalities, TCM-199 supplemented with cysteine...

Abstract

This study was designed to evaluate the in vitro effects of L-carnitine and glutamine (Gln) on the sperm quality parameters of liquid-stored rabbit semen maintained up to 24 h at 5°C. Pooled and extended ejaculates were divided into two equal portions. L-Carnitine doses of 0.5, 1 and 2 mM were...

Abstract

This study aimed to evaluate the effect of daily oral administration of free L-carnitine (LC) for 3 months on digestibility coefficients, blood parameters and semen traits of Friesian bulls. Total of 9 bulls (360±32.1 kg LBW and 20±1.4 months of age) were assigned into 3 groups. Bulls in G1, G2 and ...
