Concentration of copper, iron, zinc, cadmium, lead, and nickel in boar semen and relation to the spermatozoa quality


, : Concentration of copper, iron, zinc, cadmium, lead, and nickel in boar semen and relation to the spermatozoa quality. Journal of Environmental Science and Health Part A, Toxic/Hazardous Substances and Environmental Engineering 38(11): 2643-2651

The concentration of copper, iron, zinc, cadmium, lead, and nickel as well as its relation to spermatozoa quality was investigated. The semen samples were analyzed by atomic absorption spectrophotometry (AAS). The concentration of copper in boar semen was 1.64+or-0.28 mg kg-1 and of iron 16.14+or-10.35 mg kg-1. The concentration of zinc in boar semen reached an average value of 171.74+or-64.72 mg kg-1 and the level of cadmium reached 0.01-0.16 mg kg-1 with the average value of 0.05 mg kg-1.
