Abstract

A case report on artificial insemination of Asian water buffalo [Bubalus bubalis] at Ehime Prefectural Tobe Zoo in Japan is presented to produce an offspring successfully. The artificial insemination employs ovsinch programme, according to Pursley (1995), on a three-year old water buffalo with no...

Abstract

The objective of this research was to evaluate the effect of an astaxanthin-supplemented commercial swine diet upon semen production and sperm quality during the summer season (June-August). Dietary treatments were a non-supplemented basal diet (n=3) or the basal diet supplemented with 50-100 g...

Abstract

This study investigated the relationships between the eyed-egg ratio and sperm motility time, sperm motility rate and ovarian fluid pH in Chum salmon, to identify biomarkers for risk assessment of dead eggs. During each day of the study, we compared the biomarkers made from 20 salmon which were...

Abstract

The low motility of sperm after thawing has been a problem in artificial insemination (AI) using frozen-thawed boar semen. A cause of low functionality of post-thawed sperm, sperm oxidative stress is induced by freezing and/or thawing stimulus. Thus, in this study, we examined whether the sperm...

Abstract

Semen was collected from 9 Duroc, Large Yorkshire and Berkshire boars, and X- and Y-bearing spermatozoa were separated by Percoll density gradient centrifugation. A stock solution of Percoll was diluted with 0.15 smallcap˜M NaCl to concentrations of 40-80% (to give 7 layers). Spermatozoa were...

Abstract

Thiamine, caffeine, catalase and PGF were added to the thawing solution. Thiamine and catalase did not affect sperm survival compared with an unsupplemented control group, although the addition of Tris plus citric acid, with or without PGF, or caffeine sodium benzoate gave a slower loss of...

Abstract

Semen from 6 Landrace boars was frozen in pellets, and was compared with semen collected from 3 Large White and 3 Landrace boars, diluted with a skim milk-glucose extender, and stored unfrozen. Sperm motility was low immediately after thawing, rose to peak levels 30-60 min. later, and then...

Abstract

The mean motility index (± standard deviation) of thawed boar spermatozoa at 37°C was 28±8.0, 44±6.6, 52±5.5, 54±4.1, 54±4.4, 53±5.6, 48±7.7, 28±7.0 and 16±4.9 after 0, 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 90 and 120 min of storage resp. Electron microscope observations on thawed spermatozoa are also reported....
