Abstract

An Attempt was made to develop a suitable artificial insemination (AI) technology in Japanese quail. A diluent for quail semen comprised of sodium chloride (NaCl) 0.9 g, sodium bicarbonate (NaHCO3) 0.1 g, potassium chloride (KCl) 0.02 g, calcium chloride (CaCl2) 0.02 g, magnesium chloride (MgCl2)...

Abstract

The aim of this study was to determine the role of fatty acids for sperm survival in the sperm storage tubules (SSTs) of the hen oviduct. The mucosa tissues of uterovaginal junction (UVJ) of White Leghorn laying hens with or without artificial insemination using semen from Barred Plymouth Rock...

Abstract

Avian sperm are stored in the sperm storage tubules (SSTs) of the hen oviduct for a prolonged period. However, the precise mechanisms by which sperm are kept alive in the SSTs are still not fully understood. The aim of this study was to determine whether exosomes are secreted by SST cells and play...

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 sperm storage tubules (SST) of the turkey hen, which are located in the uterovaginal junction (UVJ) of the oviduct, maintain viable sperm for up to 10 wk after a single insemination. The mechanisms of this in vivo sperm storage are poorly understood. Our objective was to evaluate mRNA and...

Abstract

The method of semen collection and instruments used are described. Ejaculate volume averaged 0.3 ml. (0.15-0.40) and the av. number of spermatozoa per ml. semen was 7 x 109 (6.5 × 109-7.5 × 109); good quality semen was creamy-white and opaque. Up to 91.15% fertile eggs were obtained when the semen...

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

Large-type White turkey hens from a flock with a record of low " fertility " (live embryos at 7-10 days' incubation) were distributed randomly into 4 groups of 50 hens each and were given treatments involving antibiotics and inseminations on a weekly or fortnightly schedule. During the first 5 wks, ...

Abstract

Using semen exhibiting vigourous motility and diluted twofold, it was found that, as far as fertility during the first 6 days after insemination is concerned, a dose as small as about 25 million spermatozoa per insemination can at times give results which are almost as good as those obtained with...

Abstract

Hens were: (1) naturally mated, (2) inseminated with undiluted semen, or (3) inseminated with semen diluted with an oviduct extract and stored for 6 hr. Egg fertility of group 2 was greater than that of groups 1 and 3 by 6 and 10.13% resp. ; the corresponding figures for hatchability of eggs set...
