Abstract:

A Total 8 semen sample from four healthy Gir breeding bulls were collected at weekly interval for two weeks period using of artificial vagina method for evaluation of semen biochemical attributes at various stages of cryopreservation of Gir bull semen. The overall mean values for oxidative stress parameters viz. lipid peroxidation and glutathione reductase were 51.14 ± 0.18 μmol/ml and 32.24 ± 0.64 U/L, respectively in neat semen samples. The difference was non-significant among the bulls for the glutathione reductase, while significant (P<0.05) difference was found for the lipid peroxidation. Mean Malondialdehyde (MDA) level were 30.74 ± 0.55μmol/ml in 50mM Taurine group at post-thaw stages of cryopreservation, and were significantly (P<0.05) lower as compared to that of the other groups. Mean glutathione reductase levels in 50 mM Taurine group were 64.76 ± 0.78 U/L at pre-freeze stages of cryopreservation, and were significantly (P<0.05) higher as compared to that of the other groups. Mean Malondialdehyde (MDA) level was 15.95 ± 0.74μmol/ml in 50 mM Taurine group at post-thaw stages of cryopreservation, and were significantly (P<0.05) lower as compared to that of the other groups. Mean glutathione reductase levels in 50 mM Taurine group were 80.25 ± 4.85 U/L at post-thaw stages of cryopreservation, and were significantly (P<0.05) higher as compared to that of the other groups.
