The Correlation Between Mineral Concentration of Seminal Plasma and Spermatozoa Motility in Rooster

A. Aghaei, S. Tabatabaei and M. Nazari    

Abstract: The aim of this study was to evaluate the correlation between cooper, zinc, calcium, sodium and potassium concentration of seminal plasma and spermatozoa progressive motility percent in rooster. Seventeen Indigenous broiler breeder Roosters were used. According to spermatozoa motility, roosters were classified to 3 treatment groups with low, medium and high progressive motility percent. Seminal plasma from all groups was obtained with centrifuge of semen samples. Cooper, Zinc, Sodium, potassium and calcium concentrations in seminal plasma samples were determined on the atomic absorption spectrophotometer. There was positive correlation between cooper and zinc concentrations of seminal plasma and progressive motility percent of spermatozoa. There was no significant correlation between sodium concentrations of seminal plasma and progressive motility percent of spermatozoa. There was negative correlation between low/medium progressive motility rate groups and high motility group. While this correlation for calcium concentration was positive.
