Summary of "Use of trehalose in the semen cryopreservation of Amazonian catfish Leiarius marmoratus."

The current study assessed a semen cryopreservation protocol in the Amazonian catfish Leiarius marmoratus, a freshwater fish, of rheophilic behavior, and of great importance for Brazilian fish farming. Eight males (n = 8) were stripped and the semen was cryopreserved if total motility in fresh semen was higher than 80%. The external cryoprotectant Trehalose was then diluted in Beltsvile Thawing Solution (BTS) extender in the following concentrations: 50, 100, 150, and 200 mM. Semen samples were diluted in the media (1:9 v/v) being tested, then frozen in a container with nitrogen vapor (dryshipper), and stored in liquid nitrogen at -196 °C. Motility parameters assessed post-thawing were performed by CASA-system and sperm cell integrity analyses (membrane integrity, DNA integrity, and mitochondrial function) were performed through fluorescence microscopy. As a result, no significant statistical difference was observed between treatments, independently of Trehalose concentrations tested in the following post-thawing analysis: membrane integrity, DNA integrity, mitochondrial functionality, and sperm motility duration. As of total and progressive motilities, the treatment containing 50 mM trehalose (15.6 and 9.5%, respectively), exhibited inferior results when compared to treatments with 150 mM (22.9 and 17.7%, respectively) and 200 mM (31.4 and 26.3%, respectively) trehalose concentrations (P < 0.05); however, it did not differ from the treatment with 100 mM trehalose (18.6 and 15.3%, respectively). Therefore, treatments with trehalose at higher concentrations exhibited superior results when compared to other treatments in in vitro motility parameters for L. marmoratus.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A scientific or medical discipline concerning the study of male reproductive biology, diseases of the male genital organs, and male infertility. Major areas of interest include ENDOCRINOLOGY; SPERMATOGENESIS; semen analysis; FERTILIZATION; CONTRACEPTION; and CRYOPRESERVATION.

Preservation of cells, tissues, organs, or embryos by freezing. In histological preparations, cryopreservation or cryofixation is used to maintain the existing form, structure, and chemical composition of all the constituent elements of the specimens.

The quality of SEMEN, an indicator of male fertility, can be determined by semen volume, pH, sperm concentration (SPERM COUNT), total sperm number, sperm viability, sperm vigor (SPERM MOTILITY), normal sperm morphology, ACROSOME integrity, and the concentration of WHITE BLOOD CELLS.

A condition characterized by the complete absence of SEMEN. This disorder should be differentiated from AZOOSPERMIA, absence of sperm in the semen.

The process by which semen is kept viable outside of the organism from which it was derived (i.e., kept from decay by means of a chemical agent, cooling, or a fluid substitute that mimics the natural state within the organism).
