The objective of this research was to verify the effects of dietary alpha-tocopheryl acetate (50 vs. 200 mg/kg diet) and ascorbic acid (0 vs. 1 g/L water) on the relative amounts on semen and motion characteristics, oxidative stability and fertilizing ability of rabbit spermatozoa stored for 24 h at 5 degrees C. A high amount of dietary (alpha-tocopheryl acetate significantly increased the level of Vitamin E in the semen (0.90 vs. 0.41 micromol/L) and its oxidative stability after storage… CONTINUE READING
