AbstractFull Text

Growth rate affects adipose tissue development and variations in growth rate may potentially impact adipokine expression. Samples of subcutaneous (SQ) and perirenal (PR) adipose tissues and longissimus muscle were collected at day 21 of age from the fastest and slowest growing piglets within seven...

Abstract

Two studies were conducted to investigate the relationship between circulating levels of haptoglobin and α-1 acid glycoprotein (AGP) and growth in neonatal pigs. Circulating serum AGP, but not haptoglobin, was higher (P<0.001) in newborn runts than average-sized littermates. At 1 and 3 weeks,...

Abstract

Background: Porcine adipose tissue expresses orosomucoid (ORM1) mRNA, a protein with anti-inflammatory and immunomodulatory properties. Previous research has demonstrated that porcine ORM1 can reduce insulin stimulated glucose metabolism in porcine adipose tissue in vitro. The present study was...

Abstract

Runt piglets were used as a model for neonatal stress to test the hypothesis that stress during the pre-weaning period can alter adipokine gene transcription levels. Runts were selected by birth mass <1 kg and compared to littermates (controls) of mean litter weight. Subcutaneous (SQ) and...
