Abstract

Beneficial effects of Hyaluronic acid (HA) has not been yet assessed for cryopreservation of rooster sperm. This study was conducted to evaluate the effects of different concentrations of HA (0, 1, 2, 4 and 8 mM) in Beltsville extender on the cryopreservation of rooster sperm. Semen samples were...

Abstract

This experiment was conducted to study the effects of egg yolk plasma (10%, 15% and 20%), soybean lecithin (0.5%, 1% and 1.5%) and whole egg yolk (WEY) (control) on post-thawed sperm quality, hatchability and fertility outcomes. In experiment 1, sperm motility, abnormalities, membrane integrity,...

Abstract

Frozen-thawed rooster semen is not reliable for use in artificial insemination in commercial stocks. Low-density lipoprotein (LDL) has been assessed for effectiveness as a cryoprotectant in the extender to improve the quality of frozen-thawed rooster semen. Although LDL has been evaluated in a few...
