Abstract

This study was carried out to determine the effect of supplementing the semen extender with calcitriol on in vitro sperm characteristics in Chukar partridges. A total of 60 male Chukar partridges were habituated for semen collection by abdominal massage. Pooled ejaculates from several males were...

Abstract

The ability to produce viable progeny is a complex trait, involving both male and female components. In poultry, mating ratios are usually 1 male to 6 to 12 females. Consequently, the impact of male reproductive failure is much greater than that for a female. In this study, the genetic...

Abstract

The frequency of insemination in hens affects the costs associated with artificial insemination in poultry. A reduced frequency implies a larger insemination interval and therefore a reduction in costs. The objective of the study was therefore to assess the effect of insemination intervals on...

Abstract

For the past 50 yr, practices for ex situ preservation of endangered breeds have been extended. Semen and primordial germ cells, gonadic tissues have been frozen to create genetic stocks of chicken genetic diversity in cryobanks. Semen cryopreservation stays the preferred method since it is not...

Abstract

The generation of transgenic chickens is of both biomedical and agricultural significance, and recently chicken transgenesis technology has been greatly advanced. However, major issues still exist in the efficient production of transgenic chickens. This study was designed to optimize the production ...

Abstract

Glycerol is a least toxic and most effective cryoprotectant for cryopreservation of poultry semen, but due to its contraceptive properties removal of glycerol is usually needed prior to artificial insemination. Dimethylsulfoxide (DMSO), a small amphiphilic molecule used as penetrating...

Abstract

Avian semen cryopreservation is not as successful as that seen in mammals. This failure is mostly attributed to unique physiological characteristics of poultry semen that make it susceptible to cryo-damages. Utilization of sublethal oxidative stress for preconditioning of sperm, as an innovative...

Abstract

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effects of dietary n-3:n-6 fatty acid (FA) ratios and vitamin E (vitE) on the semen quality, FA composition, hormonal responses, and reproductive performance of aged roosters. Thirty-six Ross broiler breeder roosters were assigned to a 3×2 factorial...

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

Artificial insemination (AI) technology use in poultry production has enabled the rapid dissemination of genetic material from a small number of superior males to a high number of females. Excellent fertility in poultry can be obtained by AI compared to natural mating. Successful application of...
