Abstract

Background: Cattle populations are highly amenable to the genetic mapping of male reproductive traits because longitudinal data on ejaculate quality and dense microarray-derived genotypes are available for thousands of artificial insemination bulls. Two young Nordic Red bulls delivered sperm with...

Abstract

Millions or billions of sperm are deposited by artificial insemination or natural mating into the cow reproductive tract but only a few arrive at the site of fertilization and only one fertilizes an oocyte. The remarkable journey that successful sperm take to reach an oocyte is long and tortuous,...

Abstract

The Amur leopard cat (Prionailurus bengalensis euptilurus) is a globally endangered species, and there is thus an urgent need to increase its population. The objectives of this study were to: (1) confirm the utility of urethral catheterization (UC) for semen collection from Amur leopard cats; (2)...

Abstract

Cryoprotectants are key factors affecting sperm survival during sperm cryopreservation. Apart from glycerol, the commonly used cryoprotectant, other permeating cryoprotectants (i.e. dimethyl sulfoxide, ethylene glycol and propylene glycol) have been tested in sperm freezing of various animal...

Abstract

In birds, after natural mating or artificial insemination (AI), sperms are transported through cloaca or vagina at the utero-vaginal junction (UVJ) of oviduct. Only 1% of the deposited sperm passes through the selection process in the vagina to reach the UVJ. In the UVJ, sperm enter the tubular...

Abstract

Increasing use of fixed-time artificial insemination (FTAI) in beef cattle production has presented an opportunity for the use of fresh or chilled semen as an alternative to standard cryopreserved semen. The objective of this study was to examine in vitro sperm function and pregnancy rate of...

Abstract

In this experiment, Crassostrea angulata sperm was used as the research object to study the effect of salinity stress on sperm quality and fertilization rate using PI/Rh123 dual fluorescent staining and flow cytometry (FCM). The results showed that sperm moving-time, survival rate and sperm...

Abstract

The extensive use of artificial insemination in turkeys has led to the development of in vitro semen storage. However, fertility rates from liquid stored and frozen/thawed turkey semen are still unsatisfactory. The aim of the study was to assess spermatozoa viability, mitochondrial membrane...

Abstract

Our objectives were to ascertain the comparison of Tris egg yolk-based, Triladyl® and Optixell® extender on postthaw quality, CASA parameters and in vivo fertility of Nili Ravi buffalo (Bubalus bubalis) bull spermatozoa. Semen samples (n=35) from five bulls were diluted in Tris egg yolk-based,...

AbstractFull Text

Improving sperm parameters with a role in fertilization and keeping them as long as possible at optimal levels is still a current requirement for frozen-thawed semen. The aim of the study was to evaluate the effect of the addition of an artificial insemination media (M) and prostatic fluid (PF),...
