Abstract

Cryoprotectants are key factors affecting sperm survival during sperm cryopreservation. Apart from glycerol, the commonly used cryoprotectant, other permeating cryoprotectants (i.e. dimethyl sulfoxide, ethylene glycol and propylene glycol) have been tested in sperm freezing of various animal...

Abstract

Increasing use of fixed-time artificial insemination (FTAI) in beef cattle production has presented an opportunity for the use of fresh or chilled semen as an alternative to standard cryopreserved semen. The objective of this study was to examine in vitro sperm function and pregnancy rate of...

Abstract

With avian sperm cryopreservation protocols, the most widely used cryoprotectants (CPAs) are the glycerol (GLY; in gradual freezing: in-straw freezing method), and the dimethylacetamide (DMA; in pellets by plunging into liquid nitrogen: in-pellet rapid freezing method). Use of both methods results...

Abstract

This study was conducted to evaluate sperm motility and qualitative characteristics of ram spermatozoa cryopreserved in the presence or absence of seminal plasma under controlled condition and subjected to a 4 h post-thawing thermal evaluation test. The aim being that exposing these frozen-thawed...

Abstract

Salvia miltiorrhiza polysaccharides (SMPs) were extracted from S. miltiorrhiza in this study. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the effect of SMP on the motility of boar sperm, including the antioxidant effect of SMP on boar sperm and the effect of SMP on the in vivo fertilizing ability...

Abstract

The Amur leopard cat (Prionailurus bengalensis euptilurus) is a globally endangered species, and there is thus an urgent need to increase its population. The objectives of this study were to: (1) confirm the utility of urethral catheterization (UC) for semen collection from Amur leopard cats; (2)...

Abstract

Despite normal eucrasia, mating desire and semen quality, sire bulls sometimes have spermatozoa with poor freezing tolerance. This study assessed effects of the addition of linoleic acid albumin (LAA) and long-term (LT) equilibrium to frozen semen on their sperm freezing tolerance. Immediately...

Abstract

The aim of the current study was to compare the cryoprotective effects of low molecular weight cryoprotectants 6% DMSO, 6% ethylene glycol, 6% 1,2 propanediol and 6% glycerol on the efficiency of ram semen cryopreservation and to test the in vitro fertilizing ability of frozen-thawed ram semen....

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...

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)...
