The aim of this project was to establish if DNA molecules bind to porcine spermatozoa after incubation in vitro. In an initial experiment, the DNA was mixed with porcine spermatozoa to test for the presence of DNases. From bacterial transformation and gel electrophoresis studies, it was established that the presence of DNases within the sperm or in the sperm suspension was negligible. By the addition of radiolabeled DNA, spanning a large size range, it was demonstrated that the DNA molecules… CONTINUE READING
