An experiment was carried out to investigate the hormonal effect of GA on sexual system and 3 reproductive performance of adult male rabbits. Twenty-male New Zealand white rabbits at 7-months old were randomly divided into equal 4 groups. Groups 2, 3 and 4 were injected subcutaneously (under nick skin) with 200, 400 and 800 µg GA /kg B.W./week for 6 weeks treated period, while group 1 was served as a control group. 3 Male rabbits treated with GA at all studied doses caused a significant…

Biochemical and Reproductive Studies on the Effect of Gibberellic Acid on Rams
TLDR
It is concluded that GA3 has adverse side effects on the biochemical and reproductive profile of rams and these effects were severe in rams directly exposed to the gibberellic acid (DEG) compared to those fed on sprayed green fodder with gibb Berellic Acid (IEG).
Effect of gibberellic acid on the quality of sperm and in vitro fertilization outcome in adult male rats
TLDR
The results obtained from this study indicated that the oral use of GA3 could reduce the fertility in rats by influencing the sperm number and the quality of sperm’s chromatins.
Impact of royal jelly to improve reproductive performance of male rabbits under hot summer conditions
TLDR
It was concluded that Chinese royal jelly supplementation for heat-stressed male rabbits can counteract summer infertility and improve their physiological status.
Dietary Boron Supplementation and its Impact on Semen Characteristics and Physiological Status of Adult Male Rabbits
TLDR
It could be concluded that feeding rabbit bucks on rations containing the studied Boron doses results in a significant improvement in semen quality characteristics and had a positive effect on their physiological status.
EFFECT OF GIBBERELLIC ACID AND ROYAL JELLY INJECTION ON SOME PRODUCTIVE, REPRODUCTIVE AND PHYSIOLOGICAL TRAITS IN MATROUH CHICKENS STRAIN DURING SUMMER SEASON.
TLDR
Injection with 100, 200 μg GA3 /kg BWimproved productive, reproductive and physiological performance of males and females Matrouh and had significantly improved immune responses in hens and the quality of semen parameters in cocks under summer season conditions in Egypt.
Cytogenetic and Pathological Studies on The Effect of Gibberellic Acid in Rabbit
This study was designed to clarify the effect of the plant growth hormone, gibberellic acid (GA3) on the cytogenetic and pathological profile of adult male rabbits. Thirty bucks were classified into
Gibberellic acid acts as an agonist of steroidogenesis in male rats
TLDR
The observed increase in the activity of testicular 3β‐HSD and 17β‐ HSD along with elevated testosterone content established GA3 as an inducer of steroidogenesis in rat.
Acute effect of gibberellic acid on serum enzymes and blood markers in male albino rats
TLDR
GA3 produced dose dependent effect on different parameters of rat blood serum and biomarkers and down regulation in specific activities of ALT, ALP, GGT and amylase with significant up regulation of AST activity.
EFFECT OF PLANT HORMONE GIBBERELLIC ACID-3 ON RAT TESTICULAR BIOMARKERS AND ITS HISTOLOGY
TLDR
Results indicated that GA3 induced oxidative damage in rat testicular cells and augmented transamination, dephosphorylation and amylolytic activities and decreased the cellular antioxidant defence potential as also the DNA content.
Continuous gibberellin A3 exposure from weaning to sexual maturity induces ovarian granulosa cell apoptosis by activating Fas-mediated death receptor signaling pathways and changing methylation patterns on caspase-3 gene promoters.

TLDR
It is indicated that GA3 administration from weaning until sexual maturity can affect ovarian follicle development by inducing apoptosis and suggests that signaling through the Fas-mediated apoptotic pathway may be an important underlying mechanism of this apoptosis.

Effect of gibberellic acid on broiler chickens performance and some metabolic parameters.
TLDR
Two-weeks withdrawal period did not ameliorate the negative effects of GA3-inclusion whether on the dressing percentages, blood picture, or on the muscles and bone constituents.
Carcinogenic effect of gibberellin A3 in Swiss albino mice.
TLDR
Results indicate that gibberellin A3 was carcinogenic in mice, and this effect was concentrated in the skin of the axillary region, breast, and lung.
Induction of male Sterility by Gibberellic Acid in Sunflower
Data from field experiments indicated that application of GA at a concentration of 90–100 ppm on the 3rd day after flower bud initiation induced a high degree of male sterility without affecting
Effect of prostaglandin inhibitor on the uterotrophic response of estradiol and gibberellic acid.
TLDR
Findings indicate an apparent involvement of the prostaglandins and their biosynthesis on the action of E 2 and GA 3 as determined by the mouse uterine bioassay.
Effect of male reproductive tract fluids and proteins on the metabolism and motility of ram spermatozoa.
TLDR
It is concluded that the stimulating effects of CEF and of the other fluids and proteins are due to substrates, at least some of which are present as or associated with macromolecules.
Synergistic uterotrophic effect of gibberellic acid and estradiol in the immature mouse.
Abstract The combined treatment of immature female mice with gibberellic acid (GA 3 ) and estradiol (E 2 ) resulted in a significant increase of uterine weight, appreciably more than with estradiol
Survival of ram spermatozoa at high dilution: protective effect of simple constituents of culture media as compared with seminal plasma.
TLDR
Sperm death in the basal saline medium was strongly dependent on cell concentration below 5 x 10(7) spermatozoa mL-1 whereas little effect of concentration was seen in the sucrose medium or in the presence of seminal plasma, and no effect was gained by replacing NaCl with KCl, and neither BSA nor fetal calf serum were beneficial.
Lipid and antioxidant changes in spermatozoa and seminal plasma throughout the reproductive period of bulls.
TLDR
The changes in lipid composition owing to ageing were associated with a marked reduction within the seminal plasma of the major antioxidant enzyme systems, glutathione peroxidase and superoxide dismutase.
Characterization of the soluble alkaline phosphatase from hepatopancreas of Squilla mantis L.
TLDR
A soluble alkaline phosphatase present in the hepatopancreas of Squilla mantis was extracted and showed a higher affinity for ADP and ATP; glucose phosphoesters are weak inhibitors.
Comparative evaluation of initially static and motile semen ejaculates from Friesian and Murrah buffalo bulls for physico-morphological, biochemical, enzymatic and mineral constituents of seminal plasma*
TLDR
The poor quality of static ejaculates and the reasons for different behavioural patterns of sperrns of 2 species noted during in-vitro storage are suggested.
