Parentage analysis in a managed free ranging population of southern white rhinoceros: genetic diversity, pedigrees and management

Small populations are vulnerable to the consequences of breeding within closed groups as the loss of genetic … Read more »

Different patterns of metabolic cryo-damage in domestic cat (Felis catus) and cheetah (Acinonyx jubatus) spermatozoa

Felid spermatozoa are sensitive to cryopreservation-induced damage, but functional losses can be mitigated by post-thaw swim-up or … Read more »

Oxidative phosphorylation is essential for felid sperm function, but is substantially lower in cheetah (Acinonyx jubatus) compared to domestic cat (Felis catus) ejaculate

Compared with the normospermic domestic cat, sperm metabolic function is compromised in the teratospermic cat and cheetah, … Read more »

Digital gene expression for non-model organisms

Next-generation sequencing technologies offer new approaches for global measurements of gene expression but are mostly limited to … Read more »

Individual genetic diversity does not predict ejaculate quality in captive or wild-born cheetahs (Acinonyx jubatus)

Terrell, K., Crosier, A.E., Wildt. D.E., O’Brien, S.J. David, V.A., Anthony, N.M., Crumples, N., Marker, L.L, Johnson, … Read more »

Oxidative metabolism is required for sperm motility and viability in felids, but may be impaired in cheetah (Acinonyx jubatus) ejaculates

Teratospermia (ejaculation of ≥ 60% structurally abnormal spermatozoa)is common in certain felid species or populations, especiallyin the … Read more »

Evidence for compromised metabolic function and limited glucose uptake in spermatazoa form the teratospermic domestic cat (Felis catus) and cheetah (Acinonyx jubatus)

Cheetahs and certain other felids consistently ejaculate high proportions (≥ 60%) of malformed spermatozoa, a condition known … Read more »

Genetic analysis of scat reveals leopard Panthera pardus and cheetah Acinonyx jubatus in southern Algeria
