The present study aimed to compensate dilution effect using additional seminal plasma (SP) in conventional (80 million (M) spermatozoa/ml) dose and low spermatozoa/dose (8M spermatozoa/ml). We also attempted to confirm whether removal of SP before the extension of ejaculates affects post-thaw sperm quality of buffalo semen. For this, semen ejaculat...

Single Nucleotide Polymorphism (SNP) is one of the important molecular markers widely used in animal breeding program for improvement of any desirable genetic traits. Considering this, the present study was carried out to identify, annotate and analyze the SNPs related to four important traits of buffalo viz. milk volume, age at first calving, post...

The study was undertaken to decipher the microRNA (miRNA) related markers associated with corpus luteum (CL) tropism in buffalo. The data obtained from deep sequencing of CL tissue from different physiological stages was mined in silico for the identification of miRNA-related markers (SSR & SNP). From the present study, 5 annotated and 176 unannota...

The pattern of interactions between foot and mouth disease (FMD) viral protein 1 (VP1) with susceptible and resistant host integrins were deciphered. The putative effect of site-directed mutation on alteration of interaction is illustrated using predicted and validated 3D structures of VP1, mutated VP1 and integrins of Bos taurus, Gallus and Canis....

The effect of rumen-protected nutrients (bypass fat, BPF; bypass protein, BPP; or their combination, BPPF) was investigated in Murrah buffaloes during the early stage of lactation. Forty Murrah buffaloes (BW 531.92 ± 10.85 kg) just after parturition were randomly distributed into four groups according to parity and milk production. Buffaloes indivi...

Somatic cell nuclear transfer (SCNT) technology provides an opportunity to multiply superior animals that could speed up dissemination of favorable genes into the population. In the present study, we attempted to reproduce a superior breeding bull of Murrah buffalo, the best dairy breed of buffalo, using donor cells that were established from tail-...
Article
The study was conducted to determine effects of sodium alginate on sperm during cryopreservation. Each ejaculate (n = 20) of five buffalo bulls (3–5 years) were divided into six equal fractions and diluted using egg yolk based extender supplemented with different concentrations of sodium alginate and cryopreserved. Frozen-thawed semen samples were...
