Short summary
The current study was designed to evaluate the probable protective effect of luteolin against lipid peroxidation of ram spermatozoa membranes and kinematics during cold preservation. Results indicated that luteolin was able to improve the kinematics of spermatozoa during liquid storage. Enzymatic and total antioxidants were improved by luteolin enrichment. Luteolin did not affect the nitrosative index of stored ram spermatozoa after 72 h.
