Abstract [en]

In order to gain insight of the modifications that freezing and thawing cause to the surviving population of spermatozoa, changes in the potential of the plasma membrane (Em) and intracellular Na+ content of stallion spermatozoa were investigated using flow cytometry. Moreover, caspase 3 activity was also investigated and the functionality of the Na+-K+ ATPase pump was investigated before and after freezing and thawing. Cryopreservation caused a significant (pamp;lt;0.001) increase in the subpopulation of spermatozoa with depolarized sperm membranes, concomitantly with an increase (pamp;lt;0.05) in intracellular Na+. These changes occurred in relation to activation of caspase 3 (pamp;lt;0.001). Cryopreservation reduced the activity of the Na-K+ pump and inhibition of the Na+-K+ ATPase pump with ouabain-induced caspase 3 activation. It is concluded that inactivation of Na+-K+ ATPase occurs during cryopreservation, an inhibition that could play a role explaining the accelerated senescence of the surviving population of spermatozoa.
