Abstract

The production of reactive oxygen species (ROS) during cryopreservation of semen alters the sperm motion and mobility characteristics, resulting in poor or failure of conception rate after artificial insemination (AI). Melatonin an antioxidant is able to modulate the effect of ROS and prevents...

Abstract

To achieve the targeted artificial insemination coverage with the current rate of semen production, without affecting the conception rate, it needs to reduce the number of spermatozoa per insemination dose in India as per international practice. Therefore, this study was planned to perform...

Abstract

Objective of this study was to compare cryosurvival of epididymal (EP) and electroejaculated (EE) sperm cryopreserved in liposome- or egg yolk- based extenders. Aliquots of EE sperm (n = 10 bulls) were cryopreserved with a liposome- (Optixcell; EEO) or egg yolk-based extender (Botubov; EEB). Bulls...

AbstractFull Text

Equilibration is the one of the important steps of semen cryopreservation and it is the stage in which semen is cooled and phase changes occur. The condition of equilibration is mostly regarded; and success of the equilibration conditions depend on empirical experiences. The aim of this study was...
