Abstract

Over the past decades, scientists endeavored to comprehend oxidative stress in poultry spermatozoa and its relationship with fertilizing ability, lipid peroxidation (LPO), free-radical scavenging systems, and antioxidant therapy. Although considerable progress has been made, further improvement is...

Abstract

The turkey industry relies totally on artificial insemination to continue and improve production. If something compromises the insemination process, such as contaminated semen, it becomes a detrimental loss to the industry. Bacteria have been found in broiler breeder males to reduce sperm motility. ...

Abstract

Egg yolk is used as a cryoprotectant in semen preservation. However, its composition varies according to the species which may influence its effectiveness during the freeze-thaw process. Therefore, study was conducted to identify the optimum level of pigeon egg yolk (PEY) in Tris citric acid (TCA)...

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

Currently most breeds and lines of geese in use at a commercial scale are derived from two wild species; the swan goose (Anser cygnoides L.) and the true goose-greylag (Anser anser L.). Interestingly, local selections performed for centuries from these two ancestors have resulted in strains or...

AbstractFull Text

The successful of artificial insemination (AI) depends on the semen quality and extender. To minimize effect of cold shock during storage, extender is added with egg yolk. The objectives of this study were to compare the effectiveness of pure Low Density Lipoprotein (LDL) and egg yolk from domestic ...

AbstractFull Text

The objective of the present study was to compare the efficacy of three diluents on post-thaw motility, viability, and fertility of frozen chicken semen. Semen from Thai native cocks (Pradu Hang Dam; n=24) was collected, pooled, and randomly allocated into three groups, then diluted at a ratio of...

Abstract

During fertilization, spermatozoa interact with the zona pellucida (ZP) through the binding between the acrosome and proteins 2 and 3 (ZP2 and ZP3). The perivitelline membrane of chicken egg yolk is homologous to the mammalian ZP3, which allows the binding of sperm of several species. The aim of...
