Effect of vitamin E addition (alfa-tokoferol) into sperm washing medium by centrifuge on the quality of Brahman cattle spermatozoa ABSTRACT. The aims of study to determine the effectiveness of the addition of vitamin E in the washing medium by centrifugation on sperm quality Brahman cattle. frozen semen of Brahman cattle, divided into 4 treatment groups addition of vitamin E in the washing medium: 0.0gr/100 ml medium (K0), 0.1gr /100 ml medium (K1); 0.2gr/100 ml medium (K2) and 0.3 g / 100 ml medium (K4), each group was repeated 5 times. Examination of motility, viability and integrity of sperm membrane performed according to WHO standards. The data obtained were analyzed with one-way ANOVA and Duncan test. The average percentage of motility, viability and membrane integrity of spermatozoa in the addition of vitamin E were significantly different (P <0.05) compared to the control. Percentage of motility, viability and membrane integrity of spermatozoa in the group K2 significantly higher (P <0.05) compared with the group K3: K1 and K0. Percentage of motility, viability and sperm capacitation and sperm live on group K3 significantly higher (P <0.05) compared with the K1 and K0. While the percentage motility of spermatozoa in the group K1 higher were not significant (P> 0.05) compared with the group K0. The addition of vitamin E in the medium on the process of washing spermatozoa Brahman cattle. The addition of vitamin E 0.2gr/100ml better than vitamin E 0.1gr/100ml and 0.3gr/100ml in maintaining the percentage of motility and live spermatozoa Brahman cattle.
