Relationship between bull fertility and binding of 3H heparin to spermatozoa in Sahiwal-Friesian bull

Abstract

A study was carried out to determine the effect of lyophilised heparin binding proteins (HBP) on the heparin binding ability of bovine epididymal spermatozoa and to determine the relationship between bull fertility and total binding of heparin to spermatozoa membrane. It was found that epididymal spermatozoa samples added with lyophilised HBP bound significantly higher (p 0.05) between post-thaw motility percentage of semen and heparin binding affinity of spermatozoa from the bulls. This showed that bulls with semen of high motility are not necessarily more fertile than those bulls with lower motility percentage
