AbstractThe objective of this study was to evaluate the LH surge after last hormonal injection of synchronization of ovulation protocols in buffalo. Fifteen multiparous buffaloes received 25 mg of Lecirelin in Day 0, and 150 mg of D-Cloprostenol on Day 7. On Day 8, estradiol benzoate was injected in Group 1 (0.5 mg, n = 5) and Group 2 (1.0 mg, n = 5). On Day 9, five buffaloes received 25 mg of Lecirelin (Control). Blood samples were collected for measure the LH concentrations on Day 7 and then every 3 hours until 72 hours after the PGF2a injection. For evaluation of LH surge were compared the interval between PGF2a injection to LH surge, duration, amplitude and area under the LH peak. The LH surge occurred 51.0 + 0.0 hours, 47.3 + 2.7 hours and 47.0 + 3.8 hours after PGF2a injection for Control, Group 1 and Group 2, respectively (P >; 0.05). The duration of LH peak in Control (7.8 + 1.5 hours) was shorter than Groups 1 and 2 (10.5 + 1.5 hours vs. 10.8 + 2.4 hours, respectively; P < 0.05). The amplitudes of LH peak were 4.5 + 0.4 ng/mL, 4.0 + 0.4 ng/mL and 4.3 + 0.8 ng/mL for Control, Group 1 and Group 2, respectively (P >; 0.05). The area under LH peak for Control (4.8 ± 0.7) was smaller than the areas of the Groups 1 and 2 (8.8 ± 2.5 vs. 8.7 2.2, respectively; P < 0.05). In summary, the estradiol benzoate injection provided higher duration and area of LH peak than GnRH injection in Ovsynch protocol in buffalo.
