Resumo

O emprego da criopreservação espermática na reprodução equina representou um grande
avanço para o desenvolvimento da espécie. Entretanto a utilização de biotecnicas como a
refrigeração e congelação espermática imprime sobre as células danos físicos e químicos que
resultam em elevação nos níveis de espécies reativas do oxigênio (EROs), estresse oxidativo e
injúrias irreversíveis aos espermatozoides. Visando amenizar as consequências do estresse
oxidativo, diversas substancias com propriedades antioxidantes são adicionadas aos meios
diluidores durante a criopreservação, apesar disto, na maioria das vezes o mecanismo de ação
desencadeado por estes antioxidantes não é bem esclarecido. Diante disto, objetivou-se com o
presente estudo referenciar os principais agentes antioxidantes utilizados na criopreservação
de garanhões e seus mecanismos de ação.
