AbstractFull Text

The pig is an important species for food production and biomedical research. We have established a first gene catalogue of the pig gut microbiome by deep sequencing fecal DNA from a cohort of 287 pigs bred in France, China and Denmark. The catalogue contains more than 7.7 million non-redundant...

Abstract

Laboratory mice preferentially rear their offspring in communal nests (CN), with all mothers contributing to maternal care and feeding of all the pups. Previous studies using primarily outbred mice have shown that offspring reared under CN conditions may display increased preweaning growth rates...

Abstract

Ornithine aminotransferase (l-ornithine 2-oxoacid aminotransferase, OAT) is widely expressed in organs, but studies in mice have focused primarily on the intestine, kidney and liver because of the high OAT-specific activity in these tissues. This study aimed to investigate OAT activity in adult...

Abstract

In this chapter focus is on the breeding facilities used for laboratory animals emphasizing refinements in in-house animal production and breeding. Also discussed are the three Rs in animal production, making the decision, preservation of colonies, and calculating colony size.

Abstract

Encephalomyocarditis virus (EMCV) could infect many host species and cause acute myocarditis and sudden death in pre-weaned piglets. It was necessary to develop new antiviral strategies for the treatment of the virus infection. Here, four plasmids expressing shRNA (small hairpin RNA) targeted to 1D ...

Abstract

Standard housing for laboratory mice severely restricts natural behaviour and the control that the animal has over its environment. Providing the cage with objects is a method that has been used to both increase environmental complexity, promote the performance of natural behaviour and provide...

Abstract

Since the first successful cloning of mammals from adult somatic cells, there has been no examination of the learning or behaviour of cloned offspring. The possibility of adverse effects on animals produced through adult somatic cell cloning is high because many natural biological processes are...

Abstract

Although obese (C57B1/6J, ob/ob) rats have greater avidity for non-nutritive sucking than lean rats as early as 15 days old, previous research has not found differences in milk intake between ob/ob and lean mice during the preweaning period. Because ob/ob young suck longer than lean rats, their...

Abstract

An experiment was conducted to study the maternal and foetal effects of the sex-linked gene tortoise on litter size, birth weight, body weight from birth to 30-days of age, and mortality in normal (N) and mutant (M) mice. The experiment involved 2 mating types (1) N × N (dam × sire), which produced ...

Abstract

Selection of mice for 8 generations for total weaned litter weight or total weaned litter weight divided by the 9-week body weight of the dam increased both the genetic potential for growth and maternal performance, but reduced progeny survival rate to weaning.
