Abstract

 

The data obtained suggest that the dialysis method of diluting the sperm of boars contributes to more effective protection of sperm during their cryopreservation than the traditional dilution of ejaculate. In this case, the preservation of adenosine-5'-triphosphate (ATP) and mobility was higher by 12 and 1 to 13.5% compared with control.

 

Key words: Preservation, adenosine-5'-triphosphate (ATP), mobility, freezing, membrane, sperm, boars.
