This experiment was designed to evaluate the effect of butylated hydroxytoluene supplementation in extender on motility, plasmalemma and viability of Sahiwal bull spermatozoa.
One of the antioxidants supplemented to extender is butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT), and its beneficial effects have been reported in many studies (Hammerstedt et al., 1976; Pursel, 1979; Watson and Anderson, 1983; Killian et al., 1989; Bamba and Cran, 1992; Donoghue and Donoghue, 1997; Roca et al., 2004; Khalifa et al., 2008; Shoae and Zamiri, 2008; Ijaz et al., 2009).
Butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT), a well-known anti-oxidant, was used as a positive control.

As for BHT (butylated hydroxytoluene), some studies say that it causes cancer while others say that it prevents the disease.
The ovaries and young fruits of approximately 0.5 g were separately ground with 5 mL 80% (v/v) methanol extraction medium containing 0.1% butylated hydroxytoluene and 0.06% polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP) per gram fresh material in an ice-cooled mortar.
