Abstract


This study aimed to determine the effects of resveratrol in the trisaminomethane (TRIS)-egg yolk extender and its optimal inclusion level for goat semen cryopreservation. Five ejaculates of three Anglo Nubian goats were used, each divided into four 200 µL aliquots for use in four treatments: 0.00 (control), 0.04, 0.08 and 0.12 mg mL-1 resveratrol in the TRIS-egg yolk extender. We evaluated progressive sperm motility and sperm vigor post-dilution, post-cooling, and post thawing; membrane integrity (HOST); and acrosomal integrity and performed a slow thermoresistance test (STT). The data were submitted to a regression analysis at a 5% probability. There was no difference in progressive motility or sperm vigor in the post-dilution (89.5, 89.0, 88.7 and 88.3, and 4.9, 5.0, 4.9, and 4.9) or post-cooling (81.0, 82.0, 83.0, and 78.3; and 4.3, 4.3, 4.2, and 4.2) experiments (P > 0.05), or in the complementary acrosomal integrity test (42.0, 47.4, 42.2 and 38.2) (P > 0.05). However, the motility and vigor parameters decreased linearly in the post-thaw phase, as well as during the 2 hours of incubation on STT (P < 0.05). These factors increased quadratically when resveratrol was added to HOST, to an optimal level of 0.039 mg mL-1 resveratrol for a plasma membrane integrity of 52.55% (P < 0.05). The inclusion of resveratrol was effective in maintaining sperm viability; in particular, it was effective in maintaining plasmatic membrane integrity during the cryopreservation process up to 0.039 mg mL-1, meaning that it could be an alternative to conventionally used seminal extenders in goats.
