Abstract

For the past 50 yr, practices for ex situ preservation of endangered breeds have been extended. Semen and primordial germ cells, gonadic tissues have been frozen to create genetic stocks of chicken genetic diversity in cryobanks. Semen cryopreservation stays the preferred method since it is not...

Abstract

Artificial insemination is commonly used in breeder farms to stabilize fertility. Hens are able to store sperm for a long time and remain fertile, so that they can extend the chicken insemination interval, and thus achieve better economic benefits. In this paper, dwarf brown-shell laying hens were...

Abstract

The aim of this study was to evaluate the in vitro and in vivo quality of frozen-thawed sperm obtained from the Combatiente Español avian breed, with sperm having previously been diluted in N-methylacetamide (NMA). Experimental groups were established: fresh control semen (C); semen diluted without ...

Abstract

The practice of artificial insemination is widely utilized in poultry; and this requires a broad use of semen storage techniques to prevent the reduction of fertilizing ability of stored semen. The antioxidant activity of palmitoleic acid with in vitro experiments has been shown. The present study...

Abstract

Liquid storage of avian spermatozoa is currently being employed in programs utilizing the artificial insemination to optimize the management of genetically superior males. It is mandatory to use efficient semen storage techniques in order to prevent the reduction of the fertilizing ability of...

Abstract

With avian sperm cryopreservation protocols, the most widely used cryoprotectants (CPAs) are the glycerol (GLY; in gradual freezing: in-straw freezing method), and the dimethylacetamide (DMA; in pellets by plunging into liquid nitrogen: in-pellet rapid freezing method). Use of both methods results...

Abstract

The objective of this study conducted was to determine the influence of different levels of sperm concentration, including catalase (CAT) and vitamin E (VitE) in rooster semen extender on postthawed quality and fertility of rooster semen. Semen was collected twice a week from six roosters (Arian)...

Abstract

Chicken semen conservation is an important tool for programs of genetic diversity management and of endangered breeds' conservation. However, the method still needs to be improved in order to be applied in a wide variety of environments and breeds. Our objective was to compare the effects of 2...

Abstract

Sperm motility is used to predict the semen quality and fertilization ability of breeder roosters. Indigenous chicken breeder roosters show variation in sperm motility, but less has been known about its relationship with other reproductive attributes. In this study, 40- to 44-wk-old Beijing-You...

Abstract

Over the past decades, scientists endeavored to comprehend oxidative stress in poultry spermatozoa and its relationship with fertilizing ability, lipid peroxidation (LPO), free-radical scavenging systems, and antioxidant therapy. Although considerable progress has been made, further improvement is...
