AbstractFull Text

This study aimed to evaluate and compare the quality of post thawing spermatozoa of buffalo frozen semen produced by artificial insemination centers on standard values, and proposed reference values (PRV). Materials of the research were 60 samples of straws obtained from three Artificial ...

Abstract

This study aimed to assess characteristics of bovine cryopreserved sperm and evaluate its relation to field fertility in fixed-time artificial insemination (FTAI). Semen samples of 16 bulls were used to inseminate 811 Nellore cows, and four of these bulls were also used to inseminate 101 Nellore...

Abstract

Alpha linolenic acid (ALA) is integral component of cell membrane that protects the cell in stressful events and involves in many metabolic pathways. It was hypothesized that ALA have the ability to protect the structural and functional integrity of buffalo spermatozoa during freeze-thawing....

Abstract

In rabbit farms, artificial insemination is usually undertaken using semen preserved around 18°C. However, increased reactive oxygen species levels during preservation produce sperm dysfunction. Our aim was to evaluate the effect of adding superoxide dismutase (SOD) antioxidant mimics (Tempo and...

Abstract

The physical and chemical characteristics of gelatin have been used to justify its inclusion in extenders to preserve the sperm quality and improve results of cervical artificial insemination with cooled semen. The objective of this study was to evaluate the effects of gelatin supplementation in...

Abstract

It was hypothesized that dimethyleacetamide (DMA) can be used as an alternate to glycerol for cryopreservation of Indian red jungle fowl semen. Four concentrations of DMA (4%, 6%, 8% and 10%) in extender were compared with previously optimized cryopreservation protocol based on 20% glycerol...

AbstractFull Text

The biotechnologies of reproduction, that also involves the artificial insemination at goats, have been rapidly developed after the optimization of producing and preserving the semen methods and of those of synchronizing the females' estrum. In order to obtain an acceptable fertility is necessary...

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

Sperm cryopreservation is a key point in canine artificial insemination technique. The instable freezing effect and low sperm motility after thawing always result in failure of canine artificial insemination and the small average litter size, which limits the extensive use of this technique. Canine ...
