Abstract

The increased exportation of semen and embryos of double-muscled beef breeds to tropical and developing countries makes it important to investigate the reproductive capacity of these breeds in adapting to tropical conditions. The aim of this study was to evaluate the quality of Belgian Blue semen...

Abstract

The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of sub-lethal concentration of Xanthine oxidase (XO) on the post-thawed bull sperm quality. Semen samples were collected from four Holstein bulls, twice a week and during three consecutive weeks (n=24 total ejaculates). After collection in each...

Abstract

Variations in fertility between bulls with comparable sperm quality could be due to differences in their seminal plasma (SP). The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of adding bovine SP from bulls of known fertility to SP-free sperm samples. After removal of SP by Single Layer...

AbstractFull Text

BACKGROUND: Semen cryopreservation might be influenced by sperm concentration. OBJECTIVES: This study was conducted to investigate the effect of three different semen concentrations [100 (C100), 50 (C50), and 25 (C25) × 106 spermatozoa/mL] on freezability of bull semen. METHODS: On each collection...

Abstract

The composition of sperm proteins influences the fertilizing ability of sperm and hence the present study was conducted (i) to profile sperm proteins expression patterns in bulls of differing fertility index and (ii) to identify and relate the abundant sperm proteins with bull fertility. The semen...

Abstract

BACKGROUND: The cryopreservation process induces osmotic stress, membrane changes and production of reactive oxygen species resulting in damage to the spermatozoa. Together, the presence of oxygen in the extender aggravates the oxidative stress that further reduces the cryosurvival rate of sperm...

Abstract

Objective: The aim of study was to investigate the effects of season and single layer centrifugation (SLC) before cryopreservation on post-thaw bull sperm quality in Thailand. Methods: Semen was collected from 6 bulls (Bos indicus) in summer, rainy season and winter 2014 through 2016. Semen...

Abstract

The aim of the current study was to investigate relationships between the grade of Holstein genes and sperm motility, membrane integrity, membrane lipid architecture status and mitochondrial membrane potential in frozen-thawed (FT) semen, collected from Estonian Holstein (EHF) dairy bulls. Nineteen ...

AbstractFull Text

Addition of polyunsaturated fatty acids and/or cholesterol to a freezing diluent can modify the sperm plasma membrane composition, influencing its behavior during cryopreservation, thus, favoring seminal cryoresistance. The present study aimed to evaluate the effects of the addition of...

Abstract

The objective of this flow cytometric study was to examine plasma membrane integrity, mitochondrial membrane potential (MMP) and the degree of DNA fragmentation of cryopreserved bovine sperm immediately (0 h) and 3 h after thawing and to compare the results with each other and with the fertility of ...
