Abstract

In this study, whether the secretion of the uterine fluid (UF) exerts a role in the prolongation of functional life-span of the sperm in the hen oviduct was evaluated. The sperm were subjected to upper vaginal artificial insemination (AI) in the vicinity of the utero-vaginal junction (UVJ) under...

AbstractFull Text

The aim of this study was to examine whether the secreted fluid from the uterus influences the survival and fertilization capacity of fowl sperm in the hen oviduct. Hens with either regular uterine fluid secretion or irregular uterine fluid secretion were artificially inseminated through the...

Abstract

The objective of this study was to examine the binding potential of sperm to the epithelium of the sperm storage tubules (SST) in vitro and in vivo to assess the functional maturation of fowl sperm. Sperm from the testis, epididymis, as well as the proximal, middle and distal vas deferens were...

Abstract

The objective of this study was to examine whether domestic fowl (Gallus domesticus) sperm undergo maturation in their capacity for survival and fertilization in the male reproductive tract. Sperm collected from the testis, epididymis and the proximal, middle and distal vas deferens were...

Abstract

The immune response of hens during artificial insemination (AI) and the survival of spermatozoa in the oviduct were determined in a series of studies. It was shown that lymphocytes, CD4+ and CD8+ cells were increased in the utero-vaginal junction (UVJ) tissue of low-fertility hens after repeated AI ...

Abstract

The objective was to determine whether expression of estrogen receptor (ER) mRNA in the utero-vaginal junction (UVJ) of laying hens was altered after repeated artificial insemination (AI). Semi-quantitative RT-PCR was used to determine the expression of mRNA of the two types of receptor, ERα and...

Abstract

In two 20-wk laying cycle trials, filling and emptying of sperm storage sites of the turkey oviduct were studied in 200 Large White females given tandem inseminations of semen from 20 Broad Breasted Bronze and 20 Large White males . Fertility was higher (P <0.05) in females inseminated at weekly intervals than those inseminated at biweekly intervals (92.1 plus or minus 1.2 vs 86.4 plus or minus 2.4%). The rate of gland filling and emptying did not differ significantly between weekly and biweekly insemination intervals. It is suggested...

Abstract

Eighteen 36-week-old broiler breeder hens were randomly assigned to three equal groups to be treated as virgin, naturally mated, or artificially inseminated hens. Treatments were applied for approximately 2 weeks. The oviducts were excised and four sections (vagina, uterus, isthmus and magnum) were ...

Abstract

12 quail hens were inseminated with 0.0O5 ml. quail semen and 52 with 0.02 ml. Brown Leghorn semen, using a modification of the intra-uterine method of Ogasawara and Huang [see A.B.A., 32, No. 2494]. The oviduct was everted until the egg shell was visible; the tip of the inseminating cannula was...

Abstract

The author reviews the literature dealing with the detection and the survival of spermatozoa in the genital tract of the hen. He describes a new technique for the recovery of active and morphologically normal spermatozoa from the genital tract after natural copulation or artificial insemination per ...
