Total semen volume, viscosity, pH, appearance, sperm concentration, and motility
were assayed after liquefactions with a SQA-V[TM] sperm quality analyzer (Austria, H18-990).
Similarly, increased mass motility
is reported in Kundhi and Murrah buffalo breeding bulls (Kiani et al.
Ejaculates which have motility
[greater than or equal to]70% and normal morphological [greater than or equal to]80 % and were processed for further experiments.
Experiment 2: We evaluated the individual effect on sperm motility
after percoll gradient selection for each cat.
Progressive spermatozoa motility
for control was higher than all of the other variables (water-based, oil-based, silicone-based, fertility lubricant) tested.
Semen samples having over 60% motility
were chosen for further study.
A microscope connected to a computer analyzing system (CASA: - is commonly used to evaluate sperm motility
in fish, such as common carp , African catfish , and zebrafish .
Epididymis provides an ideal milieu for sperm maturation by developing motility
and fertilising capability.
The spermatozoa samples containing those having motility
and normal morphology more than 70% were included in the experiment.
On each of the 4-mm-diameter background (B), concentration (C), and motility
(M) spots in layer 2, 3 [micro]L of 5-g/L 3-(4,5-dimethyl-2-thiazolyl)-2,5-diphenyl-tetrazolium bromide (MTT; Sigma-Aldrich), prepared in distilled water, was dried.
On these findings, we determined if male mild infertility, assessed by spermiogram as reduced sperm motility
in respect to WHO criteria, could be improved after treating the fertile female partner with MI vaginal suppositories (Xyminal[R]; Lo.
Studies have shown the in vitro activity of these catecholamines in various processes, such as motility
(BEARSON & BEARSON, 2008; SPERANDIO et al, 2003), bacterial cell growth (FREESTONE et al.
