1. The influence of dietary conjugated linoleic acid isomer (CLA, 0 and 10 g/kg) on the metabolic and physiological responses to immune stimulation induced by a single injection of Salmonella enteritidis lipopolysaccharide (LPS) or repeated injections of LPS and Sephadex G-50 was determined in male broiler chicks. 2. In experiment 1, 10-d-old chicks were fed on experimental diets for 14 d and half of the birds fed on each diet were injected intraperitoneally with LPS (1.5 mg/kg body ...

The effects of DMSO, ethylene glycol, glycerol, erythritol, dimethylformamide and sucrose on the survival of unfrozen and frozen mouse morulae were examined. All the agents had a deleterious effect on survival of the unfrozen morulae at 20 degrees C. The harmful effect of erythritol was lower at 0 degrees C and sucrose had a protective effect at that temperature. Dimethylformamide and DMSO were more harmful than ethylene glycol and glycerol at both temperatures. Higher proportions of the ...

This experiment was conducted to determine the effects of dietary safflower phospholipids (crude safflower phospholipid and purified safflower phospholipid) on performance and lipid metabolism of laying hens. Sixty-week-old Single Comb White Leghorn laying hens were divided into four groups of seven birds each, and were given one of four experimental diets containing 5% beef tallow (served as a control, tallow), a mixture of safflower oil and palm oil (SP-oil), crude safflower ...

Mouse and rat embryos were stored at 0 degree C for 24-120 h in PBS containing sucrose. Higher proportions of mouse morulae developed into expanded blastocysts in culture when they were stored in 0.25, 0.5 or 0.75 M-sucrose than in 0, 0.1 or 1.0 M-sucrose. The greatest survival rates were obtained with 0.75 M-sucrose when examined after 48 (72%), 72 (62%) and 96 (41%) h of storage. No rat morulae developed after storage at 0 degree C for 24 h in PBS, but when 0.5 or 0.75 M-sucrose was ...

The term veno-occlusive disease of the liver refers to a form of toxic liver injury characterized clinically by the development of hepatomegaly, ascites, and jaundice, and histologically by diffuse damage in the centrilobular zone of the liver. The cardinal histologic features of this injury are marked sinusoidal fibrosis, necrosis of pericentral hepatocytes, and narrowing and eventual fibrosis of central veins. Recent studies suggest that the primary site of the toxic injury is ...

Mouse morulae were frozen rapidly to -196 degrees C in the presence of 1.0-2.5 M-DMSO by a 3-step procedure; the samples were seeded at -4 to -8 degrees C, held at -20 degrees C in an ethanol bath for 10 min, suspended over liquid nitrogen at approximately -100 degrees C for 10 min and then plunged directly into liquid nitrogen at -196 degrees C. The cooling rate between -20 and -75 degrees C was approximately 17 degrees C/min. In all concentrations of DMSO significantly higher ...

Acute liver failure (ALF) in children differs from that observed in adults in both the etiologic spectrum and the clinical picture. Children, particularly very young ones, do not demonstrate classical features of encephalopathy and the definition of ALF has been revised to include patients with advanced coagulopathy, regardless of mental status. A significant number of these children will go on to require transplant or die. Etiologies vary by age with metabolic and infectious diseases ...

Cattle follicular oocytes were collected from the ovarian follicles and cultured for 28 h in m-KRB solution in a CO2 incubator (5% CO2 in air at 37 degrees C, 95% humidity). After further culture for 15-18 h with spermatozoa, 78.6% of the oocytes had matured to the second metaphase. The highest fertilization rates (36-58%) were obtained when spermatozoa were collected 1 day before insemination, kept for 14-18 h at 20 degrees C in a test tube (10 X 10(8)/ml), preincubated in m-KRB ...

A high incidence of autoantibody against the neutral glycolipid "asialo GM1" was observed in sera from patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) with neurological disorders, using an immunoflocculation test. The sera from 14 out of 17 cases of SLE with neurological disorders showed antibody activity against asialo GM1 but not against the following glycolipids: asialo GM2 GM1, and galactocerebroside. In another 87 cases of SLE without any history of seizures, as well as 61 cases of ...

A mouse monoclonal antibody (IgM) was obtained by cell hybridization between X63-Ag8.653 myeloma cells and spleen cells from a BALB mouse that was immunized with GRSL leukemia cells of the GR strain. This antibody identified a unique fetal antigen, which is expressed exclusively on embryonic thymocytes of all strains tested. Therefore, the antigen defined was named fetal thymus antigen-1, FT-1. The proportion of FT-1+ fetal thymocytes detected by immunofluorescence assay sharply ...

Myotoxin alpha (MYTX), a polypeptide toxin purified from the venom of prairie rattlesnakes (Crotalus viridis viridis), induced Ca2+ release from the heavy fraction of skeletal sarcoplasmic reticulum (HSR), using a Ca2+ electrode. The effect of MYTX was nearly abolished by pretreatment with ryanodine, an alkaloid-based Ca2+ channel blocker. In the stopped-flow experiments, MYTX increased the choline+ permeability of HSR in the presence of calsequestrin (CS). Single channel recording ...
