Survival of ram spermatozoa at high dilution: protective effect of simple constituents of culture media as compared with seminal plasma.


During incubation of ram spermatozoa at 1 x 10(7) cells mL-1 or less in a simple HEPES-buffered saline medium, high levels of cell death were detected using propidium iodide as a probe of viability (membrane integrity): some 70% of the cells died during 3 h incubation at 37 degrees C. Because the conditions of incubation were similar to those encountered… (More)
