Abstract

The purpose of this study was to investigate the beneficial effects of reduced glutathione (GSH) for cryopreservation of rooster semen. In experiment 1, semen samples were collected from 15 roosters and diluted in the Lake extender that contained various concentrations of GSH as follows: Lake...

Abstract

Collection and evaluation of semen are the first critical steps for examination of male fertility, gamete preservation and development of artificial insemination technology in ducks. Induced teaser method and manual massage method of semen collection were evaluated for the ease and reaction time in ...

Abstract

The fertilizing capacity of pure, fresh avian semen may disappear in just half an hour, hindering its successful use in artificial insemination (AI) projects. Longer storage requires the use of infra-physiological temperatures and of semen diluents that help preserve the spermatozoa but that do not ...

Abstract

Avian semen cryopreservation is not as successful as that seen in mammals. This failure is mostly attributed to unique physiological characteristics of poultry semen that make it susceptible to cryo-damages. Utilization of sublethal oxidative stress for preconditioning of sperm, as an innovative...

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

We aimed at the evaluating the occurrence of macrophages in rabbit semen and finding possible relationship between macrophage concentration and spermatozoa quality. The concentration of macrophages in semen samples from broiler rabbit males of lines M91 and P91 (n=30) without overt evidence of...

Abstract

Artificial insemination (AI) technology use in poultry production has enabled the rapid dissemination of genetic material from a small number of superior males to a high number of females. Excellent fertility in poultry can be obtained by AI compared to natural mating. Successful application of...

Abstract

Lactobacillus resides in the hen's gastrointestinal tract, vagina and cloaca. When fed to hens, Lactobacillus has improved egg weight, size and shell strength. However, data from our lab suggests Lactobacillus may be detrimental to semen and possibly fertility. Therefore, the objective of this...

Abstract

The Spix's macaw (Cyanopsitta spixii) is the rarest parrot on earth. The remaining captive population consists of 79 individuals. Captive propagation is ongoing to increase the number of individuals for future reintroduction back into the wild. Unfortunately, from 2004 to 2012, only 33 chicks...

Abstract

France is the only country that practices pedigree selection of guinea fowl for meat production. The increasing risk of line extinction for sanitary or breeding failure reasons makes clear the need for an efficient method of reproductive cell cryopreservation in this species. However, an efficient...
