Abstract

Bovine fertility remains a critical issue underpinning the sustainability of the agricultural sector. Phenotypic records collected on >7,000 bulls used in artificial insemination (AI) were used to identify 160 reliable and divergently fertile bulls for a dual strategy of targeted sequencing (TS) of ...

Abstract

Recently, the conception rates after artificial insemination have been pointed out to decline continuously. To overcome this problem, the control of frozen and thawed sperm quality is required. However, the mechanism of bovine sperm functional regulation is still largely unknown. In mammals, the...

Abstract

Background: Spermatozoa have a remarkable epigenome in line with their degree of specialization, their unique nature and different requirements for successful fertilization. Accordingly, perturbations in the establishment of DNA methylation patterns during male germ cell differentiation have been...

Abstract

Artificial insemination (AI) is an assisted reproductive technique that is implemented successfully in humans as a fertility treatment, performed extensively for commercial breeding of livestock, and is also successful in laboratory rodents. AI in the mouse may be especially useful for breeding of...

Abstract

For artificial insemination (AI) to be successful, it is essential that sperm delivery be perfectly timed relative to ovulation, as sperm lifespan is limited due to oxidative metabolism induced by capacitation. Extending the window of sperm capacitation could therefore increase sperm lifespan,...

AbstractFull Text

The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of ovarian tissue vitrification and two-step in vitro culture on the metaphase II (MII) oocyte reactive oxygen species (ROS) level, mitochondrial transcription factor A (TFAM) expression and succinate dehydrogenase (SDH) activity. After collection...

Abstract

Xenografting of immature testicular tissue combined with cryopreservation can preserve and use genetic information of prepubertal animals. For establishment of this new approach, it is essential to clarify whether offspring derived from sperm grown in host mice harboring cryopreserved xenografts...

AbstractFull Text

Breeding of (outbred) selective lines of laboratory mouse was initiated in Warsaw University of Life Sciences about 40 years ago. It bred Heavy (C) and Light (L) mice selected opposite for body weight at weaning (21st day of life), S mice line selected for higher testes weight, and control (K) mice ...

Abstract

Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI)-mediated transgenesis has been an effective measure for generating transgenic animals. However, the original ICSI-mediated methods that introduce exogenous gene using freeze-thawed or Triton X-100 treated spermatozoa as vector showed low offspring rates after ...

Abstract

Certain interest in the field of reproductivity is focused on the research work about the role of the active oxygen species and in particular - their impact on the fertility of the gametes in the last 10-15 years. There are mainly surveys on oxidative stress that showed its negative impact on the...
