Effects on sperm motility: Thirty minutes after oral gavage of RGL extract in male rats, motility of the spermatozoa was reduced and one hour after gavage the percentile of immotile sperm increased significantly compared to the controls (64% and 31.
Two hundred spermatozoa per replicate were assessed for the percentage of different motile categories including progressive, non-progressive, and immotile.
At least 200 sperm per slide were classified as the four World Health Organization (WHO) classes: rapidly progressive motile (class A), slowly progressive motile (class B), locally motile (class C) or immotile (class D), taking the average value for duplicate measures (WHO 1999).
However, the highly motile spermatozoa move actively in the direction of the sediment gradient and can therefore penetrate the boundary quicker than poorly motile or immotile cells, thus highly motile sperms cells are enriched in the soft pellet at the bottom.
Effect of fluoride on the metabolism and motility in vitro had also been demonstrated, the sperms became immotile within 2 min at 30 [degrees]C.
