Enhancement in colonization of bovine spermatogonial stem cells following addition of knock-out serum replacement to culture medium

Reza Youssefi; Parviz Tajik; Mansoureh Movahedin; Vahid Akbarinejad

Volume 7, Issue 4 , December 2016, , Pages 275-280

  Enrichment of cell suspension with germ cells prior to injection into recipient seminiferous tubules is of importance in spermatogonial stem cells (SSCs) transplantation. Knock-out serum replacement (KSR) has been reported to enhance the proliferation of murine SSCs and human embryonic stem cells. The ...  Read More

The role of fibroblast growth factor receptor 2 (FGFR2) in differentiation of bovine spermatogonial stem cells (SSCs)

Vahid Akbarinejad; Parviz Tajik; Mansoureh Movahedin; Reza Youssefi

Volume 7, Issue 2 , June 2016, , Pages 149-153

  The receptors 1 and 2 of fibroblast growth factor (FGFR1 and FGFR2, respectively) have been observed in all types of testicular cells. Culture on extracellular matrix (ECM) has been observed to lead to initiation of differentiation in spermatogonial stem cells (SSCs). The present study was carried out ...  Read More

Emanuel Senyael Swai; Angolwise Mwakibete Kapaga; Francis Sudi; Potari Meshack Loomu; Gladyness Joshua

Volume 4, Issue 2 , June 2013, , Pages 133-136

  An outbreak of malignant catarrhal fever (MCF), a fatal viral disease in indigenous Tanzanian shorthorn zebu in Ngorongoro district of Tanzania during the period of June 2004 has been described. The disease was diagnosed by clinical, post mortem findings and the virus was identified using molecular characterization ...  Read More

Follicle stimulating hormone increases spermatogonial stem cell colonization during in vitro co-culture

Reza Narenji Sani; Parviz Tajik; Mohammad Hassan yousefi; Mansoureh Movahedin; Babak Qasemi-Panahi; Shiva Shafiei; Mahmood Ahmadi Hamedani

Volume 4, Issue 1 , March 2013, , Pages 37-41

  The complex process of spermatogenesis is regulated by various factors. Studies on spermatogonial stem cells (SCCs) have provided very important tool to improve herd genetic and different field. 0.2 to 0.3 percent of total cells of seminiferous tubules is consist of spermatogonial stem cells. To investigate ...  Read More

Copper and zinc concentrations in the uterine fluid and blood serum during the bovine estrous cycle

Sayed Mortaza Alavi-Shoushtari; Siamak Asri Rezaie; Mozhgan Pak; Sajad Alizadeh; Roya Abedizadeh; Amir Khaki

Volume 3, Issue 3 , September 2012, , Pages 199-203

  To investigate uterine and serum copper (Cu) and zinc (Zn) concentrations variation during the bovine estrus cycle , 232 blood and genital tract samples were collected from the abattoir in Urmia. The phase of the estrous cycle was determined by the examination of the ovaries and the uterine tonicity. ...  Read More

Calcium and magnesium concentrations in uterine fluid and blood serum during the estrous cycle in the bovine

Sayed Mortaza Alavi-Shoushtari; Siamak Asri-Rezaie; Roya Abedizadeh; Amir Khaki; Mozhgan Pak; Sajad Alizadeh

Volume 3, Issue 2 , June 2012, , Pages 137-141

  To investigate uterine and serum Ca++ and Mg++ variations during the estrous cycle in the bovine, 66 genital tracts and blood samples were collected from Urmia abattoir, Urmia, Iran. The phase of the estrous cycle was determined by examination of the structures present on ovaries and uterine tonicity. ...  Read More
