Abstract

The aim of this study was to determine the role of fatty acids for sperm survival in the sperm storage tubules (SSTs) of the hen oviduct. The mucosa tissues of uterovaginal junction (UVJ) of White Leghorn laying hens with or without artificial insemination using semen from Barred Plymouth Rock...

Abstract

Avian sperm are stored in the sperm storage tubules (SSTs) of the hen oviduct for a prolonged period. However, the precise mechanisms by which sperm are kept alive in the SSTs are still not fully understood. The aim of this study was to determine whether exosomes are secreted by SST cells and play...

Abstract

The aim of this study was to determine the physiological significance of interleukin-1β (IL1B) and lipopolysaccharide-induced TNF factor (LITAF) in the fate of sperm in the oviduct of laying hens after artificial insemination (AI). Laying hens were inseminated with fresh semen, PBS or seminal...

Abstract

Our goal was to determine whether there is any correlation between the mRNA expressions of transforming growth factor β (TGFβ)-isoforms/their receptors and the fertility in chicken sperm stored in vitro for different times. The semen collected from White Leghorn roosters was divided into diluted...

Abstract

The aim of this study was to determine the effects of artificial insemination on the localization of antigen-presenting cells expressing MHC (major histocompatibility complex) class II mRNA in chicken oviducts. Laying hens (35-weeks-old) were inseminated with fresh semen or sham-inseminated with...
