The present study was aimed at investigating the effect of nickel chloride (NiCl2) on secretion of progesterone (P), ultrastructure and apoptosis in porcine granulosa cells. NiCl2 was added to the cells to achieve a Ni2+ concentration of 62.5, 125, 250, 500 and 1,000 μmol/L. A control group contained no NiCl2 addition. Quantification of P was performed(More)
Lycopene (LYC) is a natural carotenoid with powerful reactive oxygen species (ROS) scavenging activities. The aim of this study was to investigate if lycopene has the ability to reverse ROS-mediated alterations to the motility, viability and intracellular antioxidant profile of bovine spermatozoa subjected to ferrous ascorbate (FeAA). Spermatozoa were(More)
