Abstract

Sensitivity of rooster semen to stressful condition of cooling restricts the semen storage in commercial flocks for artificial insemination. This study was accomplished to investigate the effect of coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) addition to the Lake extender during chilled-storage on the parameters of sperm...

Abstract

Artificial insemination (AI) in vitro had been pioneered by Russian scientist V.P. Vrassky (1855) and later has been developed and advanced by I.I. Ivanov. The latter has been the first who inseminated hens artificially with the sperm obtained from the seminal ducts of slaughtered cocks (1902). AI...

Abstract

Following artificial insemination, the egg-laying rate of a large-scale breeder chicken flock declined by 10-15%. Real-time quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) analysis detected the presence of reticuloendotheliosis virus (REV) in semen from the breeder cocks used. Six REV strains were...

Abstract

Rooster sperm is sensitive to cooling, which restricts procedures to store sperms for extended periods of time for artificial insemination of commercial flocks. This study was conducted to evaluate the suitability of adding L-carnitine (LC) to chilled-storage of rooster sperm and its effects on...

Abstract

Background: Avian leukosis virus (ALV) is one of the main causes of tumour development within the poultry industry in China. The subgroup J avian leukosis viruses (ALV-J), which induce erythroblastosis and myelocytomatosis, have the greatest pathogenicity and transmission ability within this class...

Abstract

Cockerel semen is sensitive to cooling, which limits chilled storage of semen for more than 24 h. Results of artificial insemination with cold-stored semen are not desirable. This study was conducted to evaluate the effects of dietary fish oil and vitamin E (vitE) for cold-storage of rooster semen...

Abstract

Glycerol is a least toxic and most effective cryoprotectant for cryopreservation of poultry semen, but due to its contraceptive properties removal of glycerol is usually needed prior to artificial insemination. Dimethylsulfoxide (DMSO), a small amphiphilic molecule used as penetrating...

AbstractFull Text

The study was conducted to assess the effect of saline dilution of fowl semen for artificial insemination in egg layer breeder hens under the prevailing environmental conditions. The study was conducted in BV300 layer breeding hens. The dilutions were made with normal saline in the ratio of 1:1 and ...

Abstract

Artificial insemination (AI) technology use in poultry production has enabled the rapid dissemination of genetic material from a small number of superior males to a high number of females. Excellent fertility in poultry can be obtained by AI compared to natural mating. Successful application of...

Abstract

This study explored the influence of dilution and low-temperature preservation on chicken semen quality and fertility, aiming at optimizing the short-term preservation conditions for the chicken semen. The semen samples collected from 30 Beijing-You chickens were mixed gently and divided into 4...
