Abstract

Glycerol is a least toxic and most effective cryoprotectant for cryopreservation of poultry semen, but due to its contraceptive properties removal of glycerol is usually needed prior to artificial insemination. Dimethylsulfoxide (DMSO), a small amphiphilic molecule used as penetrating...

Abstract

To increase the efficiency of equine semen, it could be useful to split the artificial insemination dose and refreeze the redundant spermatozoa. In experiment I, semen of 10 sires of the Hanoverian breed, with poor and good semen freezability, was collected by artificial vagina, centrifuged,...

Abstract

Fish sperm cryopreservation is a well-established technique allowing for artificial insemination on a commercial scale. The extent of proteome alterations in seminal plasma and sperm due to cryopreservation, however, is not known. This study was conducted to evaluate the effect of cryopreservation...

Abstract

The flagellar beating of a spermatozoa's axoneme is caused by the varying activation and inactivation of dynein molecules. Dynein, axonemal, light chain 4 (DNAL4) is a functional candidate gene for sperm motility as it encodes a small subunit of the dyneins. We resequenced the porcine DNAL4 using...

Abstract

The dilution of semen is a very important initial process for semen processing and evaluation, storage and preservation in vitro and efficient artificial insemination. The aim of the study was to evaluate the effect of two synthetic diluents (OS1 and OS2) on ostrich sperm motility parameters during ...

Abstract

Objective: To evaluate effect of tris-extender supplemented with various concentrations of strawberry (Fragaria spp.) on bull semen preservability. Methods: Pooled bull semen were extended with tris-citrate-fructose egg yolk diluent (control, 0% strawberry) and various concentrations of tris...

Abstract

Prediction of male fertility with in vitro semen quality parameters remains a challenge for the bull industry. Fluorescein staining and computer-assisted semen analysis (CASA) ensure kinetically proper and functionally objective results to improve spermatological parameter control. Therefore, we...

Abstract

Semen analysis is a key factor when determining the fertility ability in males. South American camelids, and in particular the alpaca, have been studied very little when compared with other farm animals. The aim of this work was to perform the kinematic characterization of alpaca spermatozoa...

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...
