Abstract

It was hypothesized that dimethyleacetamide (DMA) can be used as an alternate to glycerol for cryopreservation of Indian red jungle fowl semen. Four concentrations of DMA (4%, 6%, 8% and 10%) in extender were compared with previously optimized cryopreservation protocol based on 20% glycerol...

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...

Abstract

The population of red jungle fowl is declining and needs special attention for its conservation with suitable approaches. For ex situ in vitro conservation of Indian red jungle fowl, establishment of semen cryobank is an appropriate option, for which an extender with adequate retrieval capacity for ...

Abstract

A specific problem in goat semen preservation is the detrimental effect of seminal plasma on sperm viability in extenders containing yolk or milk. Thus, the use of chemically defined extenders will have obvious advantages. Although previous studies indicate that the initial pH of an extender is...

Abstract

Cryptic female choice may enable polyandrous females to avoid inbreeding or bias offspring variability at key loci after mating. However, the role of these genetic benefits in cryptic female choice remains poorly understood. Female red junglefowl, Gallus gallus, bias sperm use in favour of...

AbstractFull Text

A total of 108 raisers were randomly sampled and interviewed using a structured questionnaire to determine the management practices in the production of native chickens in Palawan. Correlation analysis showed that the number of chickens raised was not influenced by the respondent's...

Abstract

This study was conducted to evaluate whether the sex of donor primordial germ cells (PGCs) influences production of chimeric semen from recipient hatchlings produced by interspecies transfer between pheasant (Phasianus colchicus) and chicken (Gallus gallus). Pheasant PGCs were retrieved from...

Abstract

The sperm output and spermiogram of the normal feathered strain of 28-week old Nigerian indigenous chickens with a mean weight of 1400±200 g were evaluated following short term injections with hyaluronan (HA). Each rooster was first treated with 10 ml of normal saline (NST) intraperitonealry (i.p.) ...

Abstract

To evaluate the feasibility of using spermatozoa-mediated gene transfer (SMGT) for carrying foreign genes into chicken oocytes, a reporter gene, CX-EGFP, was used in the present study. The reporter gene was first mixed with liposome or liposome-like compound and the mixtures were further combined...

Abstract

Egg yolk is one of the most widely used cryoprotective components for sperm preservation and a wide range of factors affect its action on sperm motility, viability and fertilizing ability. The aim of this experiment was to determine the effect of different species egg yolk, namely the domestic...
