Ejaculate characteristics, short-term semen storage and successful artificial insemination following synchronisation of oestrus in the Indian blackbuck antelope (Antilope cervicapra).

These studies demonstrate the potential application of AI technology for the conservation of endangered ungulates and the first report regarding the synchronisation of oestrus and successful non-surgical AI in blackbuck.

Progestin Exposure Before Gonadotropin Stimulation Improves Embryo Development after In Vitro Fertilization in the Domestic Cat1

Results indicate that prior exposure to exogenous progestin (via implant) or endogenous progestagen (via spontaneous ovulation) improves ovarian responsiveness to gonadotropins in the cat through a mechanism that is independent of the induction of ovarian quiescence.

Hormonal characterization of the reproductive cycle and pregnancy in the female Mohor gazelle (Gazella dama mhorr).

Interactions between steroid production and metabolism may influence the likelihood of conception occurring in this species of Gazella dama mhorr, according to life history data.

Reproductive physiology and artificial insemination studies in wild and captive gerenuk ( Litocranius walleri walleri ).

Results characterise gerenuk reproductive norms and indicate that artificial insemination may be a useful tool in the genetic management of Gerenuk antelope.

Melengestrol acetate implant contraception in addax (Addax Nasomaculatus) and Arabian oryx (Oryx Leucoryx).

Melengestrol acetate (MGA) implants were used for contraception in three addax and three Arabian oryx females housed at the Saint Louis Zoo, and reversal was shown in all three oryx by pregnancies after placement with a male approximately 2 years after MGA implant removal.



Relationship between the onset of oestrus, the preovulatory surge in luteinizing hormone and ovulation following oestrous synchronization and superovulation of farmed red deer (Cervus elaphus).

The timing of ovulation relative to the onset of oestrus and the preovulatory surge in luteinizing hormone (LH) was studied in red deer following treatments to synchronize oestrus and induce either a

Artificial insemination with frozen, thawed semen and pregnancy diagnosis in addax (Addax nasomaculatus)

Nonsurgical artificial insemination procedures were performed using frozen, thawed semen in two adult female addax using the Synchro-mate-B system of estrous control and the radioimmunoassay used to determine the luteinizing hormone immunoreactivity of urine samples are presented.

Artificial insemination of farmed fallow deer ( Dama dama ): fixed-time insemination at a synchronized oestrus

Data from both trials indicate that reasonable fawning rates can be obtained for artificially inseminated fallow deer.

Oestrous synchronization, semen preservation and artificial insemination in the Mohor gazelle (Gazella dama mhorr) for the establishment of a genome resource bank programme.

The study demonstrated the feasibility of applying artificial insemination in this species, but revealed that a number of outstanding technical problems remain to be solved.

Nonsurgical embryo transfer in the scimitar‐horned oryx (Oryx dammah): Birth of a live offspring

A healthy female calf born at 247 days post-transfer represents the first known live birth of scimitarhorned oryx following embryo transfer, providing additional evidence that estrous synchronization and embryo transfer techniques used in other ungulates can be applied to endangered antelopes such as the scimitarian-horning oryx.

Monitoring ovarian function in scimitar‐horned oryx (Oryx dammah) by measurement of fecal 20α‐progestagen metabolites

It is concluded that measurement of immunoreactive 20α-progestagen concentrations in feces has limited application for predicting ovulation or accurately timing inseminations because of delay in steroid excretion, but will enable noninvasive monitoring of ovarian cycles in scimitar-horned oryx for fertility assessment and for determining the outcome of artificial insemination programs.

Duration of the oestrous cycle and changes in plasma hormone concentrations measured after an induced ovulation in scimitar‐horned oryx (Oryx dammah)

The duration and hormonal characteristics of the oestrous cycle in scimitar-horned oryx are defined and its hormonal components are similar to the well-characterized patterns of other species, especially cattle.

Temporal relationship between the onset of oestrus, the preovulatory LH surge and ovulation in farmed fallow deer, Dama dama.

A study was conducted to determine the timing of ovulation relative to the onset of oestrus and the preovulatory LH surge in fallow deer. Mature fallow does were randomly allocated to two treatments

Hormonal and behavioural detection of oestrus in blackbuck, Antilope cervicapra, and successful artificial insemination with fresh and frozen semen.

Hormonal detection of urinary pregnanediol-3 alpha-glucuronide proved an effective method of monitoring the progress of oestrous cycles in the blackbuck; observation of sexual behaviour in a
