Semen: The thick, yellowish-white, viscid fluid secretion of male reproductive organs discharged upon ejaculation. In addition to reproductive organ secretions, it contains SPERMATOZOA and their nutrient plasma.Semen Analysis: The quality of SEMEN, an indicator of male fertility, can be determined by semen volume, pH, sperm concentration (SPERM COUNT), total sperm number, sperm viability, sperm vigor (SPERM MOTILITY), normal sperm morphology, ACROSOME integrity, and the concentration of WHITE BLOOD CELLS.Buffers: A chemical system that functions to control the levels of specific ions in solution. When the level of hydrogen ion in solution is controlled the system is called a pH buffer.Semen Preservation: The process by which semen is kept viable outside of the organism from which it was derived (i.e., kept from decay by means of a chemical agent, cooling, or a fluid substitute that mimics the natural state within the organism).Sperm Motility: Movement characteristics of SPERMATOZOA in a fresh specimen. It is measured as the percentage of sperms that are moving, and as the percentage of sperms with productive flagellar motion such as rapid, linear, and forward progression.Sperm Count: A count of SPERM in the ejaculum, expressed as number per milliliter.Spermatozoa: Mature male germ cells derived from SPERMATIDS. As spermatids move toward the lumen of the SEMINIFEROUS TUBULES, they undergo extensive structural changes including the loss of cytoplasm, condensation of CHROMATIN into the SPERM HEAD, formation of the ACROSOME cap, the SPERM MIDPIECE and the SPERM TAIL that provides motility.Infertility, Male: The inability of the male to effect FERTILIZATION of an OVUM after a specified period of unprotected intercourse. Male sterility is permanent infertility.Ejaculation: The emission of SEMEN to the exterior, resulting from the contraction of muscles surrounding the male internal urogenital ducts.Insemination, Artificial: Artificial introduction of SEMEN or SPERMATOZOA into the VAGINA to facilitate FERTILIZATION.Fertility: The capacity to conceive or to induce conception. It may refer to either the male or female.Cryopreservation: Preservation of cells, tissues, organs, or embryos by freezing. In histological preparations, cryopreservation or cryofixation is used to maintain the existing form, structure, and chemical composition of all the constituent elements of the specimens.Asthenozoospermia: A condition in which the percentage of progressively motile sperm is abnormally low. In men, it is defined as Sperm Banks: Centers for acquiring and storing semen.Oligospermia: A condition of suboptimal concentration of SPERMATOZOA in the ejaculated SEMEN to ensure successful FERTILIZATION of an OVUM. In humans, oligospermia is defined as a sperm count below 20 million per milliliter semen.Tromethamine: An organic amine proton acceptor. It is used in the synthesis of surface-active agents and pharmaceuticals; as an emulsifying agent for cosmetic creams and lotions, mineral oil and paraffin wax emulsions, as a biological buffer, and used as an alkalizer. (From Merck, 11th ed; Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p1424)Andrology: A scientific or medical discipline concerning the study of male reproductive biology, diseases of the male genital organs, and male infertility. Major areas of interest include ENDOCRINOLOGY; SPERMATOGENESIS; semen analysis; FERTILIZATION; CONTRACEPTION; and CRYOPRESERVATION.Vasectomy: Surgical removal of the ductus deferens, or a portion of it. It is done in association with prostatectomy, or to induce infertility. (Dorland, 28th ed)Hydrogen-Ion Concentration: The normality of a solution with respect to HYDROGEN ions; H+. It is related to acidity measurements in most cases by pH = log 1/2[1/(H+)], where (H+) is the hydrogen ion concentration in gram equivalents per liter of solution. (McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms, 6th ed)Insemination, Artificial, Heterologous: Human artificial insemination in which the semen used is that of a man other than the woman's husband.Varicocele: A condition characterized by the dilated tortuous veins of the SPERMATIC CORD with a marked left-sided predominance. Adverse effect on male fertility occurs when varicocele leads to an increased scrotal (and testicular) temperature and reduced testicular volume.Seminal Vesicle Secretory Proteins: The secretory proteins of the seminal vesicles are proteins and enzymes that are important in the rapid clotting of the ejaculate. The major clotting protein is seminal vesicle-specific antigen. Many of these seminal vesicle proteins are under androgen regulation, and are substrates for the prostatic enzymes, such as the PROSTATE-SPECIFIC ANTIGEN, a protease and an esterase.Masturbation: Sexual stimulation or gratification of the self.Cervix Mucus: A slightly alkaline secretion of the endocervical glands. The consistency and amount are dependent on the physiological hormone changes in the menstrual cycle. It contains the glycoprotein mucin, amino acids, sugar, enzymes, and electrolytes, with a water content up to 90%. The mucus is a useful protection against the ascent of bacteria and sperm into the uterus. (From Dictionary of Obstetrics and Gynecology, 1988)Acrosome: The cap-like structure covering the anterior portion of SPERM HEAD. Acrosome, derived from LYSOSOMES, is a membrane-bound organelle that contains the required hydrolytic and proteolytic enzymes necessary for sperm penetration of the egg in FERTILIZATION.Sexual Abstinence: Refraining from SEXUAL INTERCOURSE.Cryoprotective Agents: Substances that provide protection against the harmful effects of freezing temperatures.Freezing: Liquids transforming into solids by the removal of heat.Testis: The male gonad containing two functional parts: the SEMINIFEROUS TUBULES for the production and transport of male germ cells (SPERMATOGENESIS) and the interstitial compartment containing LEYDIG CELLS that produce ANDROGENS.Cattle: Domesticated bovine animals of the genus Bos, usually kept on a farm or ranch and used for the production of meat or dairy products or for heavy labor.Libido: The psychic drive or energy associated with sexual instinct in the broad sense (pleasure and love-object seeking). It may also connote the psychic energy associated with instincts in general that motivate behavior.HEPES: A dipolar ionic buffer.Genitalia, Male: The male reproductive organs. They are divided into the external organs (PENIS; SCROTUM;and URETHRA) and the internal organs (TESTIS; EPIDIDYMIS; VAS DEFERENS; SEMINAL VESICLES; EJACULATORY DUCTS; PROSTATE; and BULBOURETHRAL GLANDS).Manuals as Topic: Books designed to give factual information or instructions.Pregnancy: The status during which female mammals carry their developing young (EMBRYOS or FETUSES) in utero before birth, beginning from FERTILIZATION to BIRTH.Genital Diseases, Male: Pathological processes involving the male reproductive tract (GENITALIA, MALE).Sperm-Ovum Interactions: Interactive processes between the oocyte (OVUM) and the sperm (SPERMATOZOA) including sperm adhesion, ACROSOME REACTION, sperm penetration of the ZONA PELLUCIDA, and events leading to FERTILIZATION.Insemination, Artificial, Homologous: Human artificial insemination in which the husband's semen is used.Virus Shedding: The expelling of virus particles from the body. Important routes include the respiratory tract, genital tract, and intestinal tract. Virus shedding is an important means of vertical transmission (INFECTIOUS DISEASE TRANSMISSION, VERTICAL).Scrotum: A cutaneous pouch of skin containing the testicles and spermatic cords.Seminal Vesicles: A saclike, glandular diverticulum on each ductus deferens in male vertebrates. It is united with the excretory duct and serves for temporary storage of semen. (From McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms, 4th ed)Swine: Any of various animals that constitute the family Suidae and comprise stout-bodied, short-legged omnivorous mammals with thick skin, usually covered with coarse bristles, a rather long mobile snout, and small tail. Included are the genera Babyrousa, Phacochoerus (wart hogs), and Sus, the latter containing the domestic pig (see SUS SCROFA).Antelopes: Any of various ruminant mammals of the order Bovidae. They include numerous species in Africa and the American pronghorn.Pregnancy Rate: The ratio of the number of conceptions (CONCEPTION) including LIVE BIRTH; STILLBIRTH; and fetal losses, to the mean number of females of reproductive age in a population during a set time period.Testosterone: A potent androgenic steroid and major product secreted by the LEYDIG CELLS of the TESTIS. Its production is stimulated by LUTEINIZING HORMONE from the PITUITARY GLAND. In turn, testosterone exerts feedback control of the pituitary LH and FSH secretion. Depending on the tissues, testosterone can be further converted to DIHYDROTESTOSTERONE or ESTRADIOL.Sperm Retrieval: Procedures to obtain viable sperm from the male reproductive tract, including the TESTES, the EPIDIDYMIS, or the VAS DEFERENS.HIV-1: The type species of LENTIVIRUS and the etiologic agent of AIDS. It is characterized by its cytopathic effect and affinity for the T4-lymphocyte.Periodicals as Topic: A publication issued at stated, more or less regular, intervals.Herpes Simplex: A group of acute infections caused by herpes simplex virus type 1 or type 2 that is characterized by the development of one or more small fluid-filled vesicles with a raised erythematous base on the skin or mucous membrane. It occurs as a primary infection or recurs due to a reactivation of a latent infection. (Dorland, 27th ed.)Herpesvirus 1, Human: The type species of SIMPLEXVIRUS causing most forms of non-genital herpes simplex in humans. Primary infection occurs mainly in infants and young children and then the virus becomes latent in the dorsal root ganglion.

  • Among the commercially available boar semen extenders are Beltsville TS, Androhep + , Mulberry III, Acromax, X-CELL, Seminark, Vitasem LD, etc, 3 - 6 and most of them are either short- or long-term preservation media. (
  • 6 The addition of antibiotics to semen extenders is a common feature in commercial extenders, usually aimed at avoiding bacteria growth in extended semen. (
  • To date there are no studies in the dog documenting control of growth of aerobic and anaerobic bacteria, and mycoplasma through use of antibiotics in commercially available canine semen extenders. (
  • All fresh chilled semen samples are handled in a similar manner, however, many different commercial companies sell packaging kits and extenders. (

  • 1988. Artificial insemination of swine: Fecundity of boar semen stored in Beltsville TS BTS, Modified Modena MM, or MR-A and inseminated on one, three and four days after collection. (
  • When it comes to the quality of cooled shipped semen for artificial insemination (AI), all semen collection centers are not equal. (
  • Since artificial insemination is currently practiced in most equine breeds (except Thoroughbreds), processing semen for cooling and transport is a common task in most equine reproductive centers. (
  • The addition of the evaluation of sperm head maturity to routine semen analysis improves the assessment of fertility in men [ 11 ]. (
  • Thus, alterations in expression levels or post-translational modifications of specific proteins could alter sperm functions, potentially optimizing semen fertility. (
  • Semen analysis is critical for determining male fertility potential, but conventional testing is costly and complex. (
  • The pig semen, both frozen and fresh, will reportedly be flown in starting early next year. (
  • Beijing also runs a national frozen pork reserve to try to buffer shocks in market prices. (
  • Human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) is commonly used to induce ovulation in cycling mares and is often used to synchronize ovulation in mares being inseminated with frozen semen. (
  • Since the American Kennel Club's recognition of litters conceived from frozen semen in 1981 and the subsequent acceptance and fresh chilled semen, practioners are being asked more frequently to assist clients with maximizing conception rates using these breeding techniques. (
  • The ultra-short life span makes success with frozen semen only possible with precise mapping of the bitch's estrous cycle with definitive detection of the lh release and the exact time of ovulation. (
  • Unfortunately, occasional mishandling by the shipping company or by the shipper placing the semen package in a non-pressurized compartment of the airplane will cause the sample to arrive frozen. (
  • Frozen semen does require even more precise handling than fresh cooled semen. (
  • Frozen semen will usually be shipped in a dewer with nitrogen vapor keeping the sample frozen rather than with actual liquid nitrogen in the container. (
  • Matured oocytes were fertilized with capacitated frozen thawed-semen and incubated on 39°C, 5% CO2, and 95% humidity for 5 hours. (
  • The eruption of Iceland's Eyjafjallajokull volcano has closed airports and canceled flights in Europe, leading to the suspension of equine frozen semen shipments at the height of the breeding season. (
  • Judicial mix of men and machinery, our company has been able to mark its strong presence in the market as one of the well equipped manufacturers and supplier of Frozen Semen Sample of Donor's. (
  • Semen, not to be confused with seaman, is the fluid that sperm cells swim in. (
  • The sperm cells underwent testing in a buffer solution that resembled the conditions in female fallopian tubes. (
  • A buffer is a chemical that balances out the PH, neutralizing the acidity caused by urine passage in the tracts - this acidity would kill the sperm cells. (
  • Semen is mostly water, but it also contains amino acids and protein, sugars, minerals, and in fertile men sperm cells! (
  • the actual amount is determined by a man's age (younger men usually make more semen), when he last ejaculated, and how long he's aroused before ejaculating, among other factors. (
  • Note that a pink hue may indicate the presence of blood in a man's semen - a condition known as hematospermia. (
  • A man's semen contains hormones known as prostaglandins which can initiate labour. (
  • The practical diagnostic applicability of the assay was evaluated with clinical samples consisting of semen and organ specimens from experimentally infected animals. (
  • Only semen specimens from donors who test negative for the semen CMV culture or PCR, or who are IgM antibody negative for CMV are released for use. (
  • These alkaline bases counteract and buffer the acidic environment of the vaginal canal, and protect DNA inside the sperm from acidic denaturation. (
  • The seminal vesicles produce a yellowish viscous fluid rich in fructose and other substances that makes up about 70% of human semen. (
  • Once the semen enters the ductus epididymis the principal cells, which contain pinocytotic vessels indicating fluid reabsorption, secrete glycerophosphocholine which most likely inhibits premature capacitation. (
  • The MPs are found to have a high mucoadhesion (~50 folds at a higher ratio, and ~20 folds at a lower ratio of mucin: MPs) compare to non-layered sodium alginate MPs in both vaginal fluid and semen fluid simulant buffers. (
  • The fluid medium into which sperm are released is called semen. (
  • Semen is a semi-transparent fluid that may be white, gray, or slightly yellow in color. (
  • Both the coagulation and liquefaction of semen are the result of chemical reactions between the different components of the fluid, for which the seminal vesicles and prostate are chiefly responsible (in respective order). (
  • The fluid acts as a buffer and absorbs much of the pressure and force which is a part of lovemaking. (
  • Blood in the semen can cause a pink or reddish colour, known as hematospermia, and may indicate a medical problem which should be evaluated by a doctor if the symptom persists. (
  • By maintaining a normally acidic vaginal pH below 5.0 in the presence of semen, Carbopol 974P is thought to potentially inactivate or inhibit a broad spectrum of pathogens, including HIV. (
  • Semen stored at ambient temperature - where spermatozoal metabolism is almost maximal - needs additives to provide nutrition and buffering capacity for metabolic waste products (lactic acid, CO 2 ) to prevent permanent damage. (
  • We collected blood and semen samples. (
  • We tested blood and semen RNA extracts using real-time reverse transcription PCR (rRT-PCR) as described using 2 primers/probe amplification sets specific for ZIKV ( 3 ). (
  • Three days later, we collected a urine sample, then a second set of blood and semen samples. (
  • This test can be either based on the intrinsic fluorescence of semen traces, upon light excitation (mini-CrimeScope) and/or based on the detection of the acid phosphatase activity present in semen. (
  • The virus is present in semen as cell-free or as cell-associated virus (mononuclear cells) (Kiessling, F St 58:667, 1992). (
  • Unexplained infertility diagnosis is made in the presence of a normal semen analysis when tubal patency and normal ovulatory function are established. (
  • The swim-up migration technique is a simple preparation method commonly used for normal semen samples. (
  • Semen samples were collected from 15 fertile men (normozoospermic as control) and 40 infertile men (15 oligozoospermic, 17 asthenozoospermic, and 8 oligoasthenozoospermic). (
  • Semen is made up of several fluids and enzymes secreted by the male reproductive tract. (
  • In this study, semen samples were collected from subfertile (n=20) and fertile men (n=10) after 48h abstinence of intercourse. (
  • Fresh semen is thought to easily live 4-6 days in utero. (
  • Fresh semen were evaluated and divided in equal volume into four tubes. (
  • The fresh semen had an average volume of 2.06 ml, pH 7.03, with yellow white to creamy colour and normal to thick consistency. (
  • Hence, assessing the fraction of a sperm population that is motile is perhaps the most widely-used measure of semen quality. (
  • As the drop warms on the slide, the accompanying paperwork with the semen collector's evaluation of the semen quality. (
  • Therefore, 2 experiments (EXP) were conducted to evaluate impacts of B. subtilis on poultry semen quality. (
  • Semen pH and the sperm quality index (SQI) were obtained at 0 and 10 min post dilution to analyze effects of exposure length. (
  • In conclusion, neither direct exposure of sperm nor dietary exposure of roosters to B. subtilis alters sperm quality, possibly because this bacterium is indigenous to the rooster's reproductive tract and semen. (
  • Initial semen analysis begins with an assessment of semen quality. (
  • He stated that the stepwise addition of TEST citrate egg-yolk buffer or glycerol for cryoprotection and slow cooling and slow thawing provide the best results for the recovery of a motile population of sperm. (
  • It is one of the components of Test yolk buffer medium used for refrigeration of semen and transport. (
  • Semen in the first and second tubes diluted with 80% sugar palm juice + 20% egg yolk (P1) and Andromed (P2), respectively. (
  • However, large farms like ours are facing procedural hurdles in obtaining licences for importing live animals, semen (including sexed semen), embryos, vaccines, fodder, etc. specifically meant for these cattle. (
  • Permit import of semen (including sexed semen), embryos & live animals for captive use under OGL. (
  • Microscopic analysis is the first step in semen analysis. (
  • Fifty-one ejaculates were investigated by semen analysis and stained for chromatin condensation with AB to distinguish between unstained mature sperm and stained immature sperm. (
  • Routine semen analysis is the basic analysis in the exploration of male infertility. (
  • Although, the contribution of the semen analysis is limited on the assessment of some important criteria implicated in the sperm functional potential. (
  • Within forensic labs worldwide and more particularly in the French "Institut National de Police Scientifique", one of the first step in the identification of semen traces is the orientation method which rapidly enables the localization of semen traces, subsequently sampled for DNA analysis [ 1 ]. (
  • These data confirm that the adapted method is a reliable, improved tool for NAG analysis in human semen. (
  • Semen analysis to quantify these factors is the cornerstone of male infertility diagnosis ( 6 ) and also plays a critical role in monitoring male contraception after vasectomy to ensure permanent sterility ( 7 ). (
  • Conventional techniques for semen analysis include counting chambers, computer-assisted sperm analysis (CASA) 3 ( 8 ), and vitality assays such as dye exclusion or hypotonic swelling ( 4 , 9 ). (
  • All these current semen analysis techniques suffer from limitations that prevent their widespread application: testing procedures are long and complex and require expensive equipment, and the results are subjective, varying from clinician to clinician ( 13 , 14 ). (
  • A low-cost and rapid test for semen analysis, suitable for both clinical and self-diagnosis, would have substantial implications for patient care. (
  • If menstrual history, sexual history, physical examination findings of the couple and semen analysis report are normal the couple may be reassured, counselled and requested to report back if there is no conception within 2 years of cohabitation ( if the age of woman is more than thirty years, then take the period as 1 year of cohabitation. (
  • The andrology session began with a discussion by Dr. Gail Prins of the components and techniques for a complete semen analysis. (
  • Factors such as sexual abstinence, technique of sample production, container for sample collection, temperature, and time to analysis can greatly affect the accuracy of a semen analysis. (
  • Therefore, a motion analysis must be made on a separate, undiluted aliquot of semen. (
  • Computer Assisted Semen Analysis (CASA) is an additional option for sperm quantitation and motion analysis, which provides an objective, consistent analysis and expands the description of sperm motion characteristics. (
  • After semen analysis according to WHO criterias, each semen sample was divided into two portions. (
  • two semen and one saliva specimen(s) could not be quantified because of the presence of polymerase chain reaction inhibitors. (
  • Semen culture testing and/or polymerase chain reaction (PCR) testing detects an active infection. (
  • There is evidence in large animal species of varying efficacy of antibiotics in controlling bacterial growth in extended semen, raising concerns about passage of disease through semen. (
  • In January 1990, a health department in the United States received a report of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) infection in a woman who had been artificially inseminated with semen from her HIV-1-infected, hemophilic husband. (
  • In addition, whereas the quantification of HIV-1 in the semen and the impact of highly active antiretroviral therapy (ART) on the viral load of seminal plasma have been relatively well documented [6- , similar features have not been studied so extensively in the saliva compartment. (
  • A total of 46 sets of samples of blood, semen and saliva were taken on the same day from 40 HIV-1-infected men (aged 21-64 years) after written informed consent was obtained. (
  • However, four men exhibited a higher viral load in semen than in blood and another subject tested positive for HIV-1 RNA only in the saliva. (
  • 0.05), but none was found between saliva and semen. (
  • Since vitrification-thawing could demolish membrane phospholipid asymmetry (11), and it can be postulated that, in general, sperms are more susceptible to damage in subfertile men (8), the aim of the present study was to evaluate the effect of the vitrification on apoptosis of sperms in semen from fertile and subfertile men.

  • A wet mount of diluted semen is prepared as described for a manual estimate, and sperm are photographed using an exposure time long enough for motile sperm to leave tracks across the image (roughly 0.2 seconds). (
  • Semen stains localization is an important challenge and a prerequisite to genetic identification during forensic investigations. (
  • Semen is also a form of genetic material. (
