BACKGROUND: The cryopreservation protocol that has been developed exclusively for the preservation of the sperm of the species different. OBJECTIVE: this study was to evaluate the effect of the association of 10% DMSO with trehalose, raffinose, sucrose and lactose concentrations
on the sperm cells of Piaractus mesopotamicus. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Sperms were collected from the animals through abdominal massage. The samples were diluted in the Beltsville Thawing Solution without different concentrations of other sugars (test conditions). Sixty days after
the cryopreservation, cell movement analysis was performed using CASA. RESULTS: The results revealed that the parameters for total motility and motility period were superior when 100mM raffinose (P<0.05). The lateral displacement of the head was observed to be improved was
100mM lactose, 150mM sucrose and 150mM raffinose (P<0.05) as compared to treatment wherein lactose (0mM) was omitted. CONCLUSION: the results of our study indicated that the ideal parameters for cryopreservation, were obtained when the cryopreservation fluid contained 100mM
raffinose in association with DMSO.

More about this publication?
CryoLetters is a bimonthly international journal for low temperature sciences, including cryobiology, cryopreservation or vitrification of cells and tissues, chemical and physical aspects of freezing and drying, and studies involving ecology of cold environments, and cold adaptation
The journal publishes original research reports, authoritative reviews, technical developments and commissioned book reviews of studies of the effects produced by low temperatures on a wide variety of scientific and technical processes, or those involving low temperature techniques in the investigation of physical, chemical, biological and ecological problems.
