Table 3 Correlation coefficients between relative GSTM3-abundances in both pre-frozen (P-F) and frozen thawed (F-T) spermatozoa and sperm quality parameters in pre-frozen (P-F) and frozen-thawed spermatozoa, evaluated 30 (F-T-30) and 240 (F-T-240) min post-thaw. *P < 0.05; **P < 0.01

From: GSTM3, but not IZUMO1, is a cryotolerance marker of boar sperm
