Abstract:

For improvement of genetic program in animal, artificial insemination (AI) with liquid or frozen semen and quality of semen plays a major role for it. Sperm cells have a high content of polyunsaturated fatty acids in their membranes, and they lack a significant cytoplasmic component containing antioxidants. Therefore, they are susceptible to lipid peroxidation by the action of the reactive oxygen species (ROS). It results in the inhibition of both sperm ATP production and sperm movement, particularly forward progression. The addition of vitamin E and glutathione, as primary antioxidants to the semen extender prevented the loss of sperm motility by inhibition of lipid peroxidation caused by ROS in chilled boar spermatozoa.
