Zona pellucida (ZP) penetration, in vitro fertilization, embryo development, and the morphology of fertilizing sperm were examined through use of normospermic (> 60% structurally normal sperm/ejaculate) versus teratospermic (< 40% structurally normal sperm/ejaculate) ejaculates from domestic cats. In addition, the effect of swim-up processing on sperm-oocyte interaction was compared with that of simple sperm washing. Normospermic and teratospermic ejaculates were evaluated for sperm motility… CONTINUE READING
