Abstract

Artificial insemination made a predominant contribution towards the improvement of genetic potential and increased productivity in animal husbandry sectors. In frozen semen technology, about 50% of sperm died because of cryoinjury or cryodamage during the process of cryopreservation and thawing of...

AbstractFull Text

Until today, manifold experimentally designed technical adjustments have been introduced for semen freezing, required for artificial insemination, species protection and clinical medicine. Egg yolk, provided that it is added as an additive in many diluents for freezing mammalian sperm, has taken...

Abstract

Selecting breeders capable of transmit characteristics of economic value to the offspring is fundamental to poultry industry success. In this sense, males must produce good quality semen, with appropriate volume and concentration. Rooster ejaculates are composed of a great amount of sperm cells...

Abstract

The addition of chicken egg yolk to semen extenders is thought to reduce the fertilizing potential of rooster spermatozoa - but not (or at least not as much) that of other avian species. The aim of the present study was to determine whether quail egg yolk, a novel extender additive, provides...

AbstractFull Text

The present study was designed to compare egg yolks from three avian species in extender for cryopreservation of Sahiwal bull epididymal spermatozoa. The study was conducted on cauda epididymal spermatozoa from ten slaughtered Sahiwal bulls. Semen retrieved from epididymal cauda of each testes pair ...

AbstractFull Text

Cryopreservation of domestic animal spermatozoa has been widely used for artificial insemination and egg yolk is one of the most commonly used cryoprotectants during the freezing-thawing process. The aim of the present study was to compare the effectiveness of different duck egg yolk (DEY)...

Abstract

We investigated the use of duck egg yolk (DEY), Guinea fowl egg yolk (GFEY) and Indian indigenous hen (Desi) egg yolk (IDEY) in extender for improving the post-thaw quality of buffalo (Bubalus bubalis) bull spermatozoa, and compared it with commercial hen egg yolk (CHEY; control). For this purpose, ...
