Short communication: Concentration of TGF-beta 1, IL-10 and IL-6 in boar seminal plasma and TGF-beta 1 level in different fractions of ejaculates

Jiwakanon J, Dalin AM


To conclude: Boar seminal plasma contained TGF-beta 1 and IL-10 but with high individual variation. IL-6 was low or undetectable. The TGF-beta 1 level was highest in the first 10 mL of the sperm-rich fraction of the ejaculate. Further studies are needed on the role of different levels of cytokine in boar semen on porcine female reproductive tissue, especially for TGF-beta 1. (C) 2012 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
