In recent decades, reproductive problems were raised alongside the continuous genetic selection for performance purposes in poultry. As such, a negative correlation was observed between reproductive and production performance, which may possibly imply that the high growth rate in poultry causes physiological disorders such as decreased libido and frequency of mating. A study was conducted to establish the efficacy of feeding graded levels of camphor on reproductive function of Japanese quail as…

Oxidative stress-mediated apoptotic cell death induced by camphor in sod1-deficient Schizosaccharomyces pombe.

Camphor-induced excessive ROS production, which could not be prevented significantly in sod1 mutants, caused a dramatic increase in mortality rates due to intrinsic apoptosis revealed by mitochondrial impairment and apoptotic nuclear morphology.

The role of the male cloacal gland in reproductive success in Japanese quail (Coturnix japonica).

It is indicated that cloacal foam improves sperm transport in the female oviduct and that males with larger cloACal gland areas are preferred during mating.

The effect of camphor on the male mice reproductive system.

Administration of camphor and its effects on male mice reproductive system may result in significant structural changes, including vascularization and proliferation of sexual cells, which can affect maturation of seminiferous tubules and subsequently, reproductive function of testes in mice.

Effects of Camphor on Sexual Behaviors in Male Rats

The finding indicates that at this dose, camphor had sexual desire and sexual performance enhancing properties.

The Effect of Camphor on Sex Hormones Levels in Rats

The claim of inhibitory effect of camphor on sexual activity could not be confirmed by this study, and more investigations in this field are suggested.

Effects of propolis on eggshell microbial activity, hatchability, and chick performance in Japanese quail (Coturnix coturnix japonica) eggs.

Results of the present study indicated that propolis could be an alternative hatching egg disinfectant versus a chemical disinfectant, without adverse effects on hatchability and performance of quail chicks.

Ovarian steroidogenesis during follicular maturation in the domestic fowl (Gallus domesticus).

Data indicate that both large and small follicles can be stimulated by LH, and the inability of the largest ovarian follicle to convert progesterone to androstenedione contributes at least in part to the preovulatory increase in the plasma concentration of progester one that generates the prevulatory LH surge by positive feedback.

Results revealed that camphor has antioxidant properties but could not reduce the toxic effects of atrazine in rats, and camphor alone decreased MDA and SOD levels but its combination with atrazin increased them.
