This study was conducted to determine the effects of cysteamine, hypotaurine and aminoacids solution (BME) on standard semen parameters, lipid peroxidation and antioxidant activities of Angora goat semen after the freeze-thawing process. Ejaculates collected from four Angora goats were evaluated and pooled at 37 degrees C. Semen samples, which were diluted with a Tris-based extender containing the antioxidants hypotaurine (5 mM) and cysteamine (5 mM), and an aminoacid solution (13%), and an extender containing no antioxidants (control), were cooled to 5 degrees C and frozen in 0.25-ml French straws in liquid nitrogen. Frozen straws were thawed individually at 37 degrees C for 20 s in a water bath for evaluation.
