Establishment of renal failure models by laparoscopy in bama pigs which underwent partial nephrectomy and radical contralateral nephrectomy

(WBC) and red blood cell (RBC) counts and was performed immediately after sample collection with an MEK-7222K haematology analyser (Nihon Kohden Corporation, Japan). Serum was stored at −80°C after centrifugation. A total of 300 mg of xylocaine was injected intravenously for euthanasia after general anaesthesia with xylazine and ketamine hydrochloride at 13 weeks, or earlier if a serious complication occurred. Histopathological examination. Tissue was collected from the caudal pole of the remnant kidney. The renal tissue was fixed in 10% buffered formalin

Evaluation of long-term antibody response and cross-serotype reaction in ducks immunised with recombinant Riemerella anatipestifer outer membrane protein A and CpG ODN

stimulated with RA antigen. Total RNA was extracted, RT-PCR performed, and relative quantitation carried out using GAPDH as the reference gene, where fold change = [(E target ) Χ (control CP target − treatment CP target )] / [(E ref ) Χ (control CP ref − treatment CP ref )]. Cross-detection of antibodies . Cross-reactivity of antibodies to heterologous serotypes was examined by Western blot analysis. Different serotypes of RA, including serotypes 1, 2, 6, and RA56a (of unknown serotype), were cultured, denatured (90°C for 10 min), and loaded onto a 10% SDS

Anti-CyHV-3 effect of fluorescent, tricyclic derivative of acyclovir 6-(4-MeOPh)-TACV in vitro

−80°C until use. The tissue culture infective dose (TCID 50 /ml) for CCB cells was estimated by the Spearman–Kärber method ( 17 ) and was 5.21 × 10 5 TCID 50 /ml. Infection and experimental set-up . CCB and KF1 cells were seeded at 2 × 10 5 cells/cm 2 on six-well plates (Orange Scientific, Belgium). After 24 h incubation, the cells were infected with CyHV-3 virus at 216 PFU/well for 2 h, then the medium was replaced with 2 ml of the culture medium supplemented with 2% DMSO alone (controls) or containing 66.67 μM of T-ACV. The control for calculations

Proinflammatory cytokine changes in bronchoalveolar lavage fluid cells isolated from pigs infected solely with porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus or co-infected with swine influenza virus

( 13 , 24 ). BALF collection and total cell counts . Bronchoalveolar lavage fluid was obtained from each animal post mortem . A tracheal tube was inserted into an incision made in the trachea, and each lung was lavaged with 10 ml of PBS, yielding approximately 5 mL of recovery. Cells were collected from BALF by centrifugation at 500 × g for 10 min at 4°C. The concentration of nucleated cells in BALF was determined by counting in Türk’s solution, and approximately 3 × 10 6 BALF cells were prepared for cytokine gene expression evaluation. The supernatant was

Effects of ketosis in dairy cows on blood biochemical parameters, milk yield and composition, and digestive capacity

. Sample collection and analysis . Blood samples of each cow were collected daily before morning feeding by venepuncture of the caudal vein, and heparin sodium was used as an anticoagulant. The samples were immediately centrifuged at 1,400 g for 10 min. The plasma was subsequently stored at −80°C. Blood parameters, including BHBA, nonesterified fatty acids (NEFA), glucose (Glu), calcium (Ca), aspartate aminotransferase (AST), alanine aminotransferase (ALT), total cholesterol (TC), triglycerides (TG), total bilirubin (TBIL), and γ-glutamyl transpeptidase (GGT) were
