Effects of low-protein diets supplemented with antioxidants on histopathology of testis and testosterone and performance of male Japanese quail ( Coturnix coturnix japonica )

Abstract: The present study sought to examine the effects of low-protein diets supplemented with natural and synthetic antioxidants on reproductive traits and performance of male Japanese quail. A total of 144 one-day-old quail chicks were randomly assigned to receive four different treatments, including a control diet (a basal diet) without antioxidant supplementation, low-protein diet without antioxidant supplementation, low-protein diet supplemented with the E-selenium antioxidant (a combination of vitamin E and sele… Show more

“…In rabbits, dietary seaweed supplementation at 2% reduced sperm concentration, percentage of live sperm, and ejaculate volume (Okab et al, 2013). Due to that CX is belonging to carotenoids, which have great oxygen restoration capability, it represent a tool to reduce oxidative stress (Damaziak et al, 2018; Triques et al, 2019), and enhances the number of spermatozoa (Mahmoodpour et al, 2017). The existing results correspond with those obtained by Ferreira (2010) who stated that dietary CX supplementation to the White Plymouth Rock roosters resulted in an increase in sperm motility and concentration and a decrease in sperm morphological anomalies.…”

“…Similarly, a decreased dietary protein intake decreases plasma proteins and their antioxidant effects and adversely disturbs fertility (Mahmoodpour et al, 2017) by an increased reactive oxygen species production and a negative unbalance of antioxidant/oxidant status in the testis. Indeed, Ahmed-Farid et al (2017) found a significantly increased testicular malondialdehyde during a low-protein diet.…”

“…Kondisi tersebut menginduksi kematangan seksual awal dan mengurangi kesuburan ayam jantan. Mahmoodpour et al (2017) melaporkan bahwa peningkatan asupan kalori dapat menyebabkan peningkatan berat testis tanpa peningkatan efisiensi spermatogenik. Oleh karena itu, asupan nutrisi yang tepat sangat penting untuk menjaga kinerja reproduksi ayam jantan.…”
