Abstract

In birds, after natural mating or artificial insemination (AI), sperms are transported through cloaca or vagina at the utero-vaginal junction (UVJ) of oviduct. Only 1% of the deposited sperm passes through the selection process in the vagina to reach the UVJ. In the UVJ, sperm enter the tubular...

Abstract

Female birds store sperm in sperm storage tubules (SSTs) in the uterovaginal junction of their reproductive tract for days or weeks (depending on species) before fertilization. Sperm are transported from the SSTs to the infundibulum where fertilization occurs immediately after ovulation of each...

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...

Abstract

The objective of this study was to examine the binding potential of sperm to the epithelium of the sperm storage tubules (SST) in vitro and in vivo to assess the functional maturation of fowl sperm. Sperm from the testis, epididymis, as well as the proximal, middle and distal vas deferens were...

Abstract

After biochemical examination of the oviduct and infundibulum and of semen, a diluent was prepared containing inositol, glutamic acid, cysteine, a buffer and glucose. The motility of spermatozoa diluted 1: 3 in it and stored at 15° C remained good for up to 27 hr. Groups of 20 ♀♀ were inseminated...

Abstract

In the 1st of 3 experiments, 3 ova (controls), recovered from the magnum of artificially inseminated $ 9 killed 85 min after oviposition, were cultured in vitro for 24 hr; 2 of the 3 were fertile. In the 2nd experiment, 5 ova (negative controls), recovered from the infundibulum of unmated ♀♀ killed ...

Abstract

EXAMINATION of mucus scrapings from the inner surface of the oviduct of virgin hens after natural copulation, artificial insemination, or intraperitoneal injection of semen, indicates that spermatozoa are to be found only in the infundibulum and not in any other locality after periods of more than...

Abstract

AFTER a comprehensive 28-page review of literature relevant to the artificial insemination of birds and the storage of sperm in vivo in the oviduct of the hen, the author gives a detailed account of his own work on the intraperitoneal insemination of pigeons and fowls and of his observations on...

Abstract

OVA removed from the ovaries of artificially inseminated donors prior to ovulation, allowed to ovulate in vitro, and transferred to the oviducts of virgin hosts all failed to produce fertile eggs.
Nine out of 11 eggs from ova taken from the ovaries of non-mated donors and transferred to the...
