This study aimed to analyze the effects of semen cryopreservation on seminal proteins. Initially, we analyzed the effects of cold shock and the advent of proteomics and its benefits on the characterization of seminal proteins. Subsequently, studies reporting losses of some sperm proteins and increase in the expression of others during the cooling and freezing of the semen of different species are presented. Finally, some questions were raised to motivate the study of semen proteomics aiming to predict quality losses during the cryopreservation of semen in breeding animals of greater genetic merit.
