Abstract :

The development of goats population in Indonesia has not reached satisfactory condition, in East Java in the year 2007 the population of goat decreased for about 3,24 % (Anonimous, 2007). The governmenthas been trying to solve the problem concerning the decreas of goat population by using artificial insemination, however this effort has not been resulted in satisfactory condition. One of the main factor of the decreasing goat population is the reproduction problem, especially fertilization failure, in which  spermcell has not capable to fertilize the ovum. The failure of sperm cell penetration is caused by the reducing enzyme potency in the spermatozoa, especially acrosin enzyme that has function of the zona pelusida in theovum. In Indonesia, research about role and acrosin function in the fertilization, especially penetration on thezona pelusida in ovum of goats has not been reported yet. The general aim of the research was to determinethe role of acrosin towards the biological potency of spermatozoa to penetrate the zona pelusida. The specific aim of this research was to determine  effect of acrosin against the quality and the penetration of spermatozoa to the zona pelusida.  The  experiment was goat spermatozoa  supplemented with acrosin dosages 0; 3.0; 4.5 and 6.0 µg toward fertilization in vitro. The result of fertility test with acrosin supplemented 0; 3.0; 4.5; and6.0 µg the rate of cleavage of the oocyte was 40; 60; 60; and 0% respectively. In conclusion, dosage acrosin supplement 3.0 µg for 30 minutes was enough to induce cleavage.
