The objectives of this study were to describe hyperactivated motility in boar sperm and to determine the incidence of hyperactivation among boar sperm flushed from the oviduct. Oviducts were surgically removed from 13 gilts 32 hours after mating them to fertile boars. The majority of the sperm flushed from the oviducts was immotile, weakly motile, or stuck to mucus or cellular debris. The mucus could not be penetrated by the sperm. The remaining 3% to 19% of the flushed sperm was free-swimming… CONTINUE READING
