Abstract

The effect of semen storage time on motility parameters and fertilizing capacity of spermatozoa was investigated. Semen was collected from 9 New Zealand White male rabbits, extended with Galap extender, and stored for 48 h at +15°C. Motility parameters were evaluated after 4, 24 and 48 h using...

Abstract

To preserve Jeju black cattle (JBC; endangered native Korean cattle), a pair of cattle, namely a post-death cloned JBC bull and cow, were produced by somatic cell nuclear transfer (SCNT) in a previous study. In the present study, we examined the in vitro fertilization and reproductive potentials of ...

Abstract

Any event that makes semen collection or mating impossible, such as death, castration, or injury, may terminate a stallion's breeding career. Fortunately, stallion sperm which are capable of fertilization can be harvested from the epididymis, and frozen for future use. However, the fertility of...

Abstract

Cryopreservation methods for poultry semen are not reliable for germplasm preservation, especially for turkeys, where fertility rates from frozen/thawed semen are particularly low. The objective was to evaluate cryopreservation methods for effectiveness in promoting cryosurvival and post-thaw...

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)...

Abstract

This article reviews the minimum requirements for boar semen with emphasis on the correlation between the morphology and morphological alterations of boar sperm to fertility. The article also emphasized the need to improve on the semen morphology detection as it is vital in the overall goal of...

Abstract

In the absence of commercially viable methods for cryopreserving turkey spermatozoa, new processing methods are required to extend the functional life of stored turkey spermatozoa for artificial insemination. The present study evaluates the efficacy of a new extender (Turkey Semen Extend) and...

Abstract

Tree experiments were designed to optimize ram semen cryopreservation and to examine the effect of the extender B osmolality, extension time with extender A and B, presence of glycerol in freezing media, cooling rate from 30°C to 5°C, and dilution rate on post-thaw ram semen characteristics and...

Abstract

A review. After describing the site of fertilization and that of the functional sperm reservoir in the female tract, proposals are made concerning a modified site of sperm deposition. A deep pre-ovulatory insemination into the ipsilateral uterine horn (the side adjoining the ovulatory follicle),...
