The objective of this study was to assess the influence of supplementing various concentrations of taurine in lactose egg yolk glycerol extender (LEGE) on spermatozoa characteristics. Ejaculates of four routinely used Nili- Ravi buffalo bulls were collected once in a week for five weeks using an artificial vagina at Semen Production Unit, Qadirabad, Sahiwal, Pakistan. Pooled semen samples were diluted at 37°C in LEGE extender containing taurine (TA) (0.0, 20.0, 40.0, 60.0 mM) and aspirated into…

Antioxidative Effect of Addiing Taurine and Leptin to Tris-Extenders on Freezing And Fertilizing Abilities of Buffalo-Semen
Current study aimed to examine possible acts of adding taurine or leptin to extender on frezability and fertiablity of frozen buffalo-semen. Five sexually mature buffalo male were used for semen
Cryopreservation and Quality Assessment of Buffalo Bull (Bubalus bubalis) Semen Using New Moringa Extender and Antioxidant Co-q10
EMOLE as a new extender, is promising for the extension and preservation of buffalo semen and adding 4 ml of eMOLE could be a good substitute for the antibiotic component of CEY as a conventional semen extender.

It was concluded that ALA at a concentration of 0.250 mM significantly improved pre-freeze and post-thaw characteristics of Sahiwal bull semen, however, field trials regarding effects of adding different concentrations of ALA to semen extender on fertility of frozen-thawed semen are necessary before making any recommendations.
The role of low concentrations of some sulfuric antioxidants on the semen characteristics of rams
This study aims to investigate the effect of low concentrations of sulfuric antioxidants on sperm of rams. This study was conducted in the field of sheep and goats of the Department of Livestock in
Evaluation of postthaw sperm parameters and fertility of Cholistani service bulls
The present study evaluated Cholistani service bulls on the basis of their postthaw sperm parameters and fertilizing potential through artificial insemination under the prevailing local climate and revealed a significant effect of seasons.

Eighteen ejaculates from three buffalo bulls of Nili-Ravi breed were tested in a 3 X 6 X 3 factorial experiment and Bulls were also different for initial postthawed motility, postthaw sperm survival at 37 degrees C, and absolute index of survival of spermatozoa.
Reduction of sperm number from 30x10 6 to 15x 10 6 spermatozoa/0.5 ml dose of insemination did not affect fertility of cryopreserved buffalo bull semen, and the fertility rate for sperm concentration was similar.
Effects of Different Doses of Taurine in the Glucose-Based Extender During Cryopreservation of Rainbow Trout (Oncorhynchus Mykiss) Semen
Comparison of the results obtained for the 50 mM taurine group and the control group showed no significant difference between the post-thawing motility percentages and motility duration of sperm, and only a very low statistically difference for eyed-embryo percentages.
Effect of butylated hydroxytoluene on bull spermatozoa frozen in egg yolk-citrate extender.
Effect of sucrose, trehalose, hypotaurine, taurine, and blood serum on survival of frozen bull sperm.
The effects of the compounds studied on motility of frozen-thawed sperm were small, but if they protect sperm cell membranes, as reported for other types of membranes, they may assist sperm in surviving in the reproductive tract of the cow prior to fertilization.
