Recently I attended a prac session for my university course in which we done a
project on the cryopreservation of wombat spermatozoa. The diluents we used was
Tris Citrate, egg yolk and glycerol. I know glycerol is used for intracellular
protection while egg yolk is used for extracellular. I am wondering what the
actual function is of these cryoprotectants are??
