Previous research demonstrated that sperm mobility, i.e., the net movement of a sperm population, is a quantitative trait of the domestic fowl. However, the cellular basis for this trait was unknown. In the present work, individual motile sperm were evaluated with a Hobson SpermTracker in order to identify one or more properties of motile sperm that could account for variation in sperm mobility observed among males. A method was validated for assessing sperm motion over an erythrocyte monolayer… CONTINUE READING
