Abstract

Use of computer-assisted sperm analyzers (CASAs) to evaluate sperm fertilizing ability has great importance for the artificial insemination industry. For motility evaluation, different CASA systems and diluents are being used. These assays are poor in predicting sperm fertility, because only the...

Abstract

Ram semen cryopreservation contributes to genetic improvement through artificial insemination, eliminates geographical barriers in artificial insemination application and supports the preservation of endangered breeds thus the conservation of biodiversity. Sperm freezing process induces...

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

The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of cholesterol-loaded cyclodextrins (CLC) on motility, viability, capacitation status, and in vivo fertility of buffalo frozen-thawed sperm. After the initial semen assessment, buffalo sperm were diluted in BULLXcell extender containing 0-...

Abstract

This study explored the influence of dilution and low-temperature preservation on chicken semen quality and fertility, aiming at optimizing the short-term preservation conditions for the chicken semen. The semen samples collected from 30 Beijing-You chickens were mixed gently and divided into 4...

Abstract

Recently, the conception rates after artificial insemination have been pointed out to decline continuously. To overcome this problem, the control of frozen and thawed sperm quality is required. However, the mechanism of bovine sperm functional regulation is still largely unknown. In mammals, the...

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...

AbstractFull Text

The main goal of commercial pig production is to produce as much fattened pigs per sow per year as possible. Artificial insemination serves to enable maximum utilization of animal genetic potential. That is possible to achieve by applying adequate and controlled conditions of housing, care, feeding ...

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...
