Abstract

Avian sperm are stored in the sperm storage tubules (SSTs) of the hen oviduct for a prolonged period. However, the precise mechanisms by which sperm are kept alive in the SSTs are still not fully understood. The aim of this study was to determine whether exosomes are secreted by SST cells and play...

Abstract

The aim of this study was to determine the role of fatty acids for sperm survival in the sperm storage tubules (SSTs) of the hen oviduct. The mucosa tissues of uterovaginal junction (UVJ) of White Leghorn laying hens with or without artificial insemination using semen from Barred Plymouth Rock...

Abstract

Glycerol (GLY) and egg yolk (EY) are good cryoprotectants of avian and mammalian sperm, but in birds, they strongly inhibit the eventual fertilization of ova. Using the sperm penetration (SP-holes) assay and fertility trials, the present study investigates (1) the possible mechanism by which this...

Abstract

Semen cryopreservation is an important tool for the storage of reproductive cells used for the ex situ management of genetic diversity in birds. Recent advances in poultry semen cryopreservation technology have resulted in the emergence of cryobanking, which is now being developed in an increasing...

Abstract

The sperm storage tubules (SST) of the turkey hen, which are located in the uterovaginal junction (UVJ) of the oviduct, maintain viable sperm for up to 10 wk after a single insemination. The mechanisms of this in vivo sperm storage are poorly understood. Our objective was to evaluate mRNA and...

Abstract

An Attempt was made to develop a suitable artificial insemination (AI) technology in Japanese quail. A diluent for quail semen comprised of sodium chloride (NaCl) 0.9 g, sodium bicarbonate (NaHCO3) 0.1 g, potassium chloride (KCl) 0.02 g, calcium chloride (CaCl2) 0.02 g, magnesium chloride (MgCl2)...

Abstract

The aim of this study was to determine the physiological significance of interleukin-1β (IL1B) and lipopolysaccharide-induced TNF factor (LITAF) in the fate of sperm in the oviduct of laying hens after artificial insemination (AI). Laying hens were inseminated with fresh semen, PBS or seminal...

Abstract

A turkey hen in egg production requires 48 h after the last insemination to maximize the number of sperm in the uterovaginal junction sperm-storage tubules. Where the sperm that continue to fill the oviductal sperm-storage sites during this 48-h period reside remains unknown. Histological sections...

Abstract

The aim of this study was to determine the effects of artificial insemination on the localization of antigen-presenting cells expressing MHC (major histocompatibility complex) class II mRNA in chicken oviducts. Laying hens (35-weeks-old) were inseminated with fresh semen or sham-inseminated with...

Abstract

After biochemical examination of the oviduct and infundibulum and of semen, a diluent was prepared containing inositol, glutamic acid, cysteine, a buffer and glucose. The motility of spermatozoa diluted 1: 3 in it and stored at 15° C remained good for up to 27 hr. Groups of 20 ♀♀ were inseminated...
