AbstractFull Text

Early diagnosis of pregnancy is important in livestock production, but there is no reliable technology used for pregnancy diagnosis within the first three weeks after insemination. During early pregnancy, the expression of interferon-stimulating genes (ISGs) in peripheral blood leukocytes (PBL) is...

Abstract

Ovine artificial insemination (OAI) is not commonly performed because of specific problems related to semen application techniques, leading to highly variable results. The ideal methodology (frozen-thawed semen/vaginal route) is unfeasible under field conditions due to the cervix morphology of the...

Abstract

Background: Cryopreservation is currently the most efficient method for long-term preservation of mammalian gametes and is extensively used in swine artificial insemination (AI) centres. However, it is well-known that cryopreservation procedures induce changes in the water phase in both intra and...

Abstract

The use of camels for racing, milking and as show animals is growing in popularity, thus there is increased enthusiasm to breed more of the genetically superior animals. This review highlights recent developments in assisted reproductive techniques in camels, such as embryo transfer and artificial ...

Abstract

Transrectal palpation of the reproductive tract is the most common method for pregnancy determination in cattle and is considered a veterinary skill that new veterinary medicine (DVM) graduates should perform proficiently. However, using privately owned cattle to train students can be difficult...

Abstract

Artificial insemination is the general method of breeding for genetic improvement in offspring. However, almost half of the insemination cases fail to achieve full-term pregnancy, due to male infertility or subfertility. To maximize the success of insemination, accurate semen quality testing is...

Abstract

Among the reproductive biotechnologies needed to improve Japanese quail conservation and valorization, optimized conditions of semen methodologies including sampling, treatment, and artificial insemination are a prerequisite. However, they have been poorly developed due to specific physiological...

Abstract

The purpose of this study was to investigate the beneficial effects of reduced glutathione (GSH) for cryopreservation of rooster semen. In experiment 1, semen samples were collected from 15 roosters and diluted in the Lake extender that contained various concentrations of GSH as follows: Lake...

Abstract

Ejaculates contain a heterogeneous population of spermatozoa with differing ability to fertilize. It may be possible to reduce the numbers of spermatozoa required for artificial insemination or in vitro fertilization by selecting the sperm sub-population that possesses certain desired...

Abstract

In the quest for predicting fertility of an individual, enhancing semen handling, dilution and storage protocols, and understanding the impact of environment and, andrologists have changed their approaches to semen analysis. The technologies used today are fast developing and readily implemented in ...
