Abstract

To achieve the targeted artificial insemination coverage with the current rate of semen production, without affecting the conception rate, it needs to reduce the number of spermatozoa per insemination dose in India as per international practice. Therefore, this study was planned to perform...

Abstract

BACKGROUND: The membrane and acrosomal integrity of sperm play a vital role in fertilization process; however they are compromised upon cryopreservation. OBJECTIVE: To study the effect of cholesterol-loaded cyclodextrin (CLC) on membrane and acrosome status of Hariana bull sperm during...

Abstract

The present study aimed to investigate effects of superoxide dismutase (SOD) and reduced glutathione (GSH) on the quality of frozen-thawed semen of Sahiwal bulls. Semen was collected twice a week for 8 weeks by artificial vagina from six Sahiwal bulls, kept at the Semen Production Unit Qadirabad,...

Abstract

The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of sub-lethal concentration of Xanthine oxidase (XO) on the post-thawed bull sperm quality. Semen samples were collected from four Holstein bulls, twice a week and during three consecutive weeks (n=24 total ejaculates). After collection in each...

Abstract

The objectives were to evaluate the effect of OptiXcell® diluent and centrifugation on cooled bovine sperm viability. It was hypothesized that motility and membrane integrity of cooled spermatozoa diluted in OptiXcell® would be higher than in frozen semen for at least 48 h, and removing seminal...

Abstract

The cryopreservation of epididymal sperm is an important technique that allows genetic material to be preserved, even post mortem. However, cryopreservation leads to increased oxidative stress and impaired sperm viability. Polyunsaturated fatty acid (PUFA) supplementation may improve certain sperm...

Abstract

Objective: To explore the effect of BHT on cattle spermatozoa during cooling and cryopreservation. Methods: Pooled bull semen were diluted by Tris-Citrate-Fructose egg yolk (TCFY) diluent considered as control (0 BHT) and different concentrations of BHT (1.0, 2.0, 3.0, 4.0, 5.0 and 6.0 mM) were...
