Studies were carried out to analyze the cryoprotecting efficacy of several amino acids by use of a chemically defined synthetic medium (modified Ringer's solution) and goat cauda epididymal sperm as the model system. Motile goat cauda sperm dispersed in the synthetic medium were subjected to a freezing protocol in a computer-controlled bio-freezer, cooling 0.25 degrees C x min(-1) to 5 degrees C, 5 degrees C x min(-1) to -20 degrees C, and 20 degrees C x min(-1) to -100 degrees C, prior to… CONTINUE READING
