Effect of Coenzyme Q10 alone and with vitamin E on some semen characteristics of broiler breeder males
Iraqi Journal of Veterinary Sciences,
This study aimed at detecting the effects Coenzyme Q10 alone and with vitamin E supplementation on some semen quality and seminal plasma parameters of broiler breeder males Ross 308. Twenty-five males 43weeks aged were divided into five groups (5 rooster/ group) with five replicates (1 rooster / replicate), the first control group included drenching with corn oil capsules only. The second and fourth groups were about drenching with capsules containing Coenzyme Q10 at a concentration of (5 mg / bird) alone and with 10 mg of vitamin E daily intake. Whereas the third and fifth treatments included drenching with capsules containing the Coenzyme Q10 at a concentration of (10 mg / bird / day) alone and with 10 mg of vitamin E respectively. The results showed a significant increase (P<0.05) in the ejaculation volume, both individual and mass motility in addition to sperm concentration, particularly the fifth treatment. Furthermore, the results clear a significant decrease in the percentage of dead and abnormal sperms. The Coenzyme Q10 alone and with vitamin E led to improved semen quality marking a reduction in AST and ALT, glucose concentration and total protein with improved antioxidant status referring to a high level of glutathione (GSH) and low malondialdehyde (MDA). We conclude from this study that Coenzyme Q10 with and without vitamin E has the ability to improve the semen characteristics of age-old broiler breeder males and can improve the status of antioxidants in semen.
