It was investigated the effect of silver nanoparticles with different composite agents on functional activity of rabbits sperm after short-term storage in vitro. Silver nanoparticles with polyvinylpyrrolidone, bovine serum albumin and hyaluronan did not influenced on number of sperm viability and motility was found. However, silver nanoparticles in dose depend (1µg/mL and higher) decreased the activity of aspartat eaminotransferase and alanineaminotransferase, increased alkaline phosphatase, lactate dehydrogenase and concentration of triglycerides in condition medium.
