Abstract

Artificial insemination has been a landmark procedure in improving animal agriculture over the past 150 years. The utility of artificial insemination has facilitated a rapid improvement in animal genetics across agricultural species, leading to improvements of growth, health and productivity in...

AbstractFull Text

In the context of Czechoslovak history, permanent institutional and state attention is evident in the possibilities of using biotechnology in industry, agriculture and pharmacy. In the hierarchy of time already in 1924 (28.12.1924) at the founding of the Czechoslovak Academy of Agriculture. In the...

Abstract

Seminal plasma is a complex fluid produced by the accessory glands of the male reproductive tract. Seminal plasma acts primarily as a transport medium for sperm on its arduous journey through the male and then female reproductive tract following ejaculation. This spermatozoan expedition will...

Abstract

The domestic pig is not only an economically-important livestock species, but also an increasingly recognized biomedical animal model due to its physiological similarities with humans. As a result, there is a strong interest in the factors that affect the efficient production of viable embryos and...

Abstract

Over many decades assisted reproductive technologies, including artificial insemination, embryo transfer, in vitro production (IVP) of embryos, cloning by somatic cell nuclear transfer (SCNT), and stem cell culture, have been developed with the aim of refining breeding strategies for improved...

CAB ReviewFull Text

This object of this review is to consider whether mycoplasmas, particularly those that are important pathogens in cattle, sheep, goats and pigs, are likely to be transmitted by semen and embryo transfer techniques, and if so, what can be done to prevent such transmission. The first part gives a...

Abstract

A review. The nature of subfertility due to the male or inseminate is as complex as that of the female. Fertilization failure or failure in embryogenesis are both documented to be of seminal origin. Males also differ in the numbers of sperm required to reach their maximum fertilization rate. Males...

Abstract

The use of of AI, embryo transfer and in vitro embryo production to improve the efficiency of breeding schemes and the dissemination of genetic improvements from breeding populations to commercial populations is discussed. The use of ovum pick-up techniques in combination with in vitro maturation...
