Abstract

The objective of this study was to assess the effect of different diluent type and storage time on the quality of rooster insemination doses in terms of the spermatozoa motility and apoptosis (in vitro) and spermatozoa fertility potential (in vivo). The motility parameters were significantly (P<0.001) higher in the spermatozoa diluted in saline solution than those diluted in avian diluent at each storage time (0.5, 1 and 2 hours). The proportion of apoptotic spermatozoa was significantly (P<0.05) higher in the semen samples diluted in the avian diluent in comparison to the semen samples diluted in the saline solution after 1 hour of storage. The proportion of dead spermatozoa was significantly (P<0.05) higher in avian diluent in comparison to the semen samples diluted in the saline solution after 2 hours of storage. The fertility of spermatozoa diluted in the avian diluent significantly (P<0.01) decreased 1 hour after the ejaculate collection. In conclusion, saline solution maintained better quality of rooster spermatozoa in terms of their motility values and the proportion of apoptotic and dead cells (...

AbstractFull Text

In the present study the effect of collection regime on rabbit semen development was analyzed. Eight seminal traits, such as overall ejaculate volume (VOL), spermatozoa concentration (CON), motility (MOT), progressive motility (PRO), percentage of progressive motility (% PRO), curvilinear velocity...
