Abomasum: The fourth stomach of ruminating animals. It is also called the "true" stomach. It is an elongated pear-shaped sac lying on the floor of the abdomen, on the right-hand side, and roughly between the seventh and twelfth ribs. It leads to the beginning of the small intestine. (From Black's Veterinary Dictionary, 17th ed)Stomach, RuminantReticulum: The second stomach of ruminants. It lies almost in the midline in the front of the abdomen, in contact with the liver and diaphragm and communicates freely with the RUMEN via the ruminoreticular orifice. The lining of the reticulum is raised into folds forming a honeycomb pattern over the surface. (From Concise Veterinary Dictionary, 1988)Omasum: The third stomach of ruminants, situated on the right side of the abdomen at a higher level than the fourth stomach and between this latter and the second stomach, with both of which it communicates. From its inner surface project large numbers of leaves or folia, each of which possesses roughened surfaces. In the center of each folium is a band of muscle fibers which produces a rasping movement of the leaf when it contracts. One leaf rubs against those on either side of it, and large particles of food material are ground down between the rough surfaces, preparatory to further digestion in the succeeding parts of the alimentary canal. (Black's Veterinary Dictionary, 17th ed)Haemonchiasis: Infection with nematodes of the genus HAEMONCHUS, characterized by digestive abnormalities and anemia similar to that from hookworm infestation.Stomach Diseases: Pathological processes involving the STOMACH.Rumen: The first stomach of ruminants. It lies on the left side of the body, occupying the whole of the left side of the abdomen and even stretching across the median plane of the body to the right side. It is capacious, divided into an upper and a lower sac, each of which has a blind sac at its posterior extremity. The rumen is lined by mucous membrane containing no digestive glands, but mucus-secreting glands are present in large numbers. Coarse, partially chewed food is stored and churned in the rumen until the animal finds circumstances convenient for rumination. When this occurs, little balls of food are regurgitated through the esophagus into the mouth, and are subjected to a second more thorough mastication, swallowed, and passed on into other parts of the compound stomach.

Effects of increasing ruminally degraded nitrogen and abomasal casein infusion on net portal flux of nutrients in yearling heifers consuming a high-grain diet. (1/204)

Seven Meat Animal Research Center (MARC) III heifers (410+/-25 kg) fitted with hepatic portal, mesenteric venous, carotid catheters, and an abomasal cannula were used in a 7 x 5 incomplete Latin square design experiment. The objective was to evaluate the effects of increasing levels of ruminally degradable N (RDN) with or without the addition of abomasally infused casein on portal-drained visceral (PDV) flux of nutrients. Treatments consisted of dietary CP percentage levels of 9.5 (control), control plus .72% dietary urea (11.5U), control plus 1.44% dietary urea (13.5U), control plus abomasally infused casein (250 g/d; 11.5C), or control plus .72% dietary urea and abomasally infused casein (250 g/d; 13.5UC). All diets contained (DM basis) 80% ground corn, 15% corn silage, and 5% dry supplement and were provided for ad libitum consumption. Nitrogen intake increased (linear, P < .001) as CP increased from 9.5 to 13.5%. Portal-drained visceral release of ammonia N increased (linear, P < .10) as RDN increased, and was greater (P < .05) when protein was fed compared with heifers fed control (P < .10). Urea N removal by PDV was not affected ( P > . 10) by level of RDN but was greatest when 11.5C was fed and least when 13.5UC was fed. Net alpha-amino N (AAN) release by PDV was greatest when 13.5UC was fed (309 mmol/h), least when 9.5% CP was fed (112 mmol/h), and intermediate for the other groups (205 to 252 mmol/h). These data suggest that removal of N by the PDV may promote microbial protein synthesis when dietary RDN is low. When RDN needs have been met and amino acids are deficient for the host, escape protein should be fed to increase amino acid absorption.  (+info)

Vagotomy suppresses cephalic phase insulin release in sheep. (2/204)

The effect of selective vagotomy of the abomasum, pylorus, duodenum and liver on insulin release during the cephalic phase of digestion was investigated in wethers and lactating ewes. Electrical stimulation of the cervical vagus nerves was carried out to test the completeness of the vagotomies performed. In experiment 1, using wethers, the abomasal, pyloric and duodenal branches (ADV; n = 7) or the hepatic, abomasal, pyloric and duodenal branches (HADV; n = 10) of the ventral and/or dorsal vagus nerves were cut; a third group of wethers underwent sham-operation (SO; n = 8). In experiment 2, vagotomy (ADV; n = 5) or sham-operations (SO; n = 5) were carried out in lactating ewes. Jugular blood was drawn before and after presentation of food for glucose and insulin determination (experiments 1 and 2) or before, during and after the electrical stimulation of the peripheral ends of the cut cervical vagus nerves in randomly selected lactating ewes (experiment 3: ADV = 3, SO = 3) and wethers (experiment 4: ADV = 4, HADV = 4, SO = 4), for determination of insulin only. Presentation of food caused an immediate and significant (P < 0.05) rise in plasma insulin levels in SO animals compared with ADV or HADV wethers (experiment 1) or ADV ewes (experiment 2) without any significant change in blood glucose concentrations. In comparison with the SO group the baseline-corrected areas under the insulin response curve were significantly (P < 0.05) smaller for the respective vagotomized groups for periods 1-2, 2-4 and 4-6 min (experiment 1) and 1-2 and 2-4 min (experiment 2) after presentation of food. Total area under the response curve for 10 min was significantly (P < 0.05) lower (experiment 1) and tended (P < 0.10) to be lower (experiment 2) for the vagotomized groups compared with that of the control groups. Direct electrical stimulation of the cervical vagus nerves raised plasma insulin concentrations to significantly (P < 0.05) higher levels in the SO ewes but not in the ADV ewes (experiment 3). It was also evident that in experiment 1, HADV did not have any additive effect over that achieved by ADV alone. These results indicate that the vagal innervation of the gut mediates insulin release during the cephalic phase of feeding in sheep. It is concluded that insulin secretion from the pancreatic -cells in response to either food-related reflex activation of the vagal nuclei in the hypothalamus or direct cervical vagus nerve stimulation is mediated through the vagal efferent fibres carried in the abomasal, pyloric and duodenal branches of the vagus nerves in sheep.  (+info)

Phylogenetic characterization of 'Candidatus Helicobacter bovis', a new gastric helicobacter in cattle. (3/204)

Recently helicobacter-like organisms have been reported in the pyloric part of the abomasum of calves and adult cattle. Cultivation of these spiral bacteria has not been successful to date. In the present study, comparative 16S rDNA sequence analysis was used to determine the taxonomic position of these bacteria. Seven abomasal biopsies of adult cattle were sampled from different Belgian and Dutch farms. In all samples the presence of helicobacter-like organisms was demonstrated by biochemical, immunohistochemical and electron microscopical data. Bacterial 16S rDNA was amplified by PCR and sequences were determined either by direct or indirect sequence analysis. Pairwise comparisons revealed all sequences to be more than 99% homologous. Phylogenetic analysis placed the organism, corresponding to the reference sequence R2XA, within the genus Helicobacter. A diagnostic PCR assay was designed, differentiating all of the bovine 16S rDNA sequences from Helicobacter and Wolinella species. The low similarity level towards Helicobacter bilis (92.8%), its closest validly named neighbour, indicates that this novel taxon is indeed a novel Helicobacter species. An in situ hybridization procedure associated the bovine sequences to the helicobacter-like organisms in the abomasum. The name 'Candidatus Helicobacter bovis' is proposed for this new abomasal helicobacter from cattle.  (+info)

Development of a selective medium for isolation of Helicobacter pylori from cattle and beef samples. (4/204)

Helicobacter pylori has been isolated from the human stomach with media containing only minimal selective agents. However, current research on the transmission and sources of infection requires more selective media due to the higher numbers of contaminants in environmental, oral, and fecal samples. The objective of this study was to develop and evaluate detection techniques that are sufficiently selective to isolate H. pylori from potential animal and food sources. Since H. pylori survives in the acidic environment of the stomach, low pH with added urea was studied as a potential selective combination. H. pylori grew fairly well on H. pylori Special Peptone plating medium supplemented with 10 mM urea at pH 4. 5, but this pH did not sufficiently inhibit the growth of contaminants. Various antibiotic combinations were then compared, and a combination consisting of 10 mg of vancomycin per liter, 5 mg of amphotericin B per liter, 10 mg of cefsulodin per liter, 62,000 IU of polymyxin B sulfate per liter, 40 mg of trimethoprim per liter, and 20 mg of sulfamethoxazole per liter proved to be highly selective but still allowed robust colonies of H. pylori to grow. This medium was highly selective for recovering H. pylori from cattle and beef samples, and it is possible that it could be used to enhance the recovery of this bacterium from human and environmental samples, which may be contaminated with large numbers of competing microorganisms.  (+info)

Cross-sectional study of the association of abomasal displacement or volvulus with serum electrolyte and mineral concentrations in dairy cows. (5/204)

The objective of this study was to evaluate serum mineral and electrolyte concentrations at the time of on-farm diagnosis of left displaced abomasum, right displaced abomasum, or abomasal volvulus in dairy cows. Data were collected from 104 affected cows and 96 control cows matched with cases, based on herd, parity, and stage of lactation. Cows with abomasal displacement or volvulus had significantly lower calcium, phosphorous, magnesium, potassium, and chloride concentrations and increased anion gap at the time of diagnosis compared with control cows from the same herds. The percentages of cases and controls with total serum calcium concentrations below the lower limit of the laboratory reference range (2.08 mmol/L [8.3 mg/dL]) were 70% and 23%, respectively. Based on the large percentage of cases with hypocalcemia, administering calcium salts at the time of treatment of field cases of abomasal displacement or volvulus may be beneficial.  (+info)

Influence of abomasal infusion of high levels of lysine or methionine, or both, on ruminal fermentation, eating behavior, and performance of lactating dairy cows. (6/204)

Four multiparous late-lactation Holstein cows were fed a basal ration designed to be co-limiting in intestinally absorbable supplies of methionine and lysine. Cows were supplemented with no amino acids, lysine by abomasal infusion to 140% of the calculated intestinally absorbable requirement, methionine by abomasal infusion to 140% of requirement, or both amino acids in a 4 x 4 Latin square design with 28-d periods. Unsupplemented cows consumed 23.8 kg/d of dry matter and produced 36.9 kg/d of milk containing 3.70% fat, 3.22% protein, and 4.82% lactose. Cows ate less dry matter and produced less milk and milk lactose, and tended (P = .06 or .08) to produce less milk protein when abomasally infused with methionine alone or together with lysine. Infusion of lysine alone resulted in production values numerically between those of unsupplemented cows and those cows supplemented with methionine alone or together with lysine. Evaluation of the results with two metabolic models of dairy cows indicated that performance of unsupplemented cows may have been limited by delivery of metabolizable or digestible protein, or intestinally absorbable lysine, isoleucine, or histidine, depending on the metabolic model used to evaluate animal performance. Regardless, results are consistent with those using nonruminant species, which have shown that imbalanced profiles of intestinally absorbable amino acids are associated with reduced dry matter intake and animal performance. Results also show that negative effects on performance of lactating dairy cows can occur if methionine is supplied at levels substantially in excess of calculated intestinally absorbable requirements, either alone or together with lysine.  (+info)

Isolation and characterization of a novel inducible mammalian galectin. (7/204)

A novel mammalian galectin cDNA (ovgal11) was isolated by representational difference analysis from sheep stomach (abomasal) tissue infected with the nematode parasite, Haemonchus contortus. The mRNA is greatly up-regulated in helminth larval infected gastrointestinal tissue subject to inflammation and eosinophil infiltration. Immunohistological analysis indicates that the protein is localized in the cytoplasm and nucleus of upper epithelial cells of the gastrointestinal tract. The protein is also detected in mucus samples collected from infected abomasum but not from uninfected tissue. The restricted and inducible expression of ovgal11 mRNA and limited secretion of the protein support the hypothesis that OVGAL11 may be involved in gastrointestinal immune/inflammatory responses and possibly protection against infection.  (+info)

The effect of the plasma glucose level on the abomasal function in dairy cows. (8/204)

We have studied the effect of plasma glucose level on the abomasal outflow rate of fluid using a hyperinsulinemic glucose clamp technique in dairy cows. Four nonpregnant, nonlactating cows were subjected to one of the following treatments: hyperinsulinemic normoglycemic clamp; hyperinsulinemic hypoglycemic clamp; hyperinsulinemic hyperglycemic clamp; or, as a control, an intravenous infusion of .9% sodium chloride in a Latin square design. The cows were previously fitted with a permanent fistula in the abomasum and the outflow rate of abomasal fluid was determined using Co-EDTA as a marker assuming that the outflow followed first-order kinetics. The abomasal pH was also registered. Insulin was infused continuously through a jugular catheter at a rate of 4.8 mU. kg(-1)min(-1) for 2.5 h in the three clamp treatments. A glucose solution was infused through the catheter at a variable rate to achieve a circulating concentration, near the preinfusion glucose level (approximately 4.1 mmol/L), 2 mmol/L below the preinfusion level, and 2 mmol/L above the preinfusion level for the three hyperinsulinemic treatments, respectively. There was a significant effect of treatment on the rate of abomasal outflow (P < .001). The rate of abomasal outflow was highest for the control treatment (7.8%/min). The slowest outflow was observed in the hyperglycemic cows (3.40%/min). The hypoglycemic and normoglycemic cows showed intermediate rates (6.0%/min and 5.2%/min, respectively). The rate of outflow for the hyperglycemic cows was significantly lower than for all the other treatments (P < .01). Abomasal pH was affected by treatment (P < .05). The highest pH was observed in the hyperglycemic cows (pH 2.3). The values for the other three treatments ranged from pH 1.9 to 2.0. These results show that hyperglycemia reduced the rate of outflow and increased the pH of abomasal fluid in dairy cows. An elevated plasma glucose level thus can be considered as a potential risk factor in the pathogenesis of left-displaced abomasum.  (+info)

During the last six weeks of the dry period, eight Holstein-Friesian cows were fed a restricted amount of grass silage; after calving, a mixture of maize silage and concentrates was offered in a feeding regimen designed to induce a displacement of the abomasum. In the first month after calving, the cows were monitored for the following variables: feed intake and composition, milk production, the position of the abomasum, and the pH and osmolality of the rumen contents. In five of the eight cows, a left displacement of the abomasum occurred between four and 21 days after calving in the absence of other diseases. The displacement was temporary, lasting between five and 36 consecutive hours and one or two days in two of the cows (floaters), and for three or more days in the other three. Before these three cows developed the displacement, their abomasum was 4.3 to 7.9 cm higher, its contents had a higher mean osmolality (+19.2 mosmol/kg), and the ratio of roughage to concentrates in their feed was ...
Electromyographic (EMG) recordings of the reticulum, abomasal corpus, pyloric antrum and duodenum of six dairy cows with left displacement of the abomasum (LDA) were made in order to substantiate abomasal atony as a prerequisite to abomasal displacement. EMG recordings were made when LDA was present as well as when absent. Mean values were determined in five of six cows for the maximum peak or amplitude, mean peak values, peak-to-peak interval and count of the electrical response activity (ERA) for each 15 min segment of the waveform recordings. Segments containing phase III migrating myoelectric activity were not analysed. LDA positive periods were compared to LDA negative periods in each cow. The 6 h period (transition period) prior to the diagnosis of LDA was analysed separately. Paired t-tests were applied to group values with statistical significance established at the P = 0.05 level. There was a significant decrease in the ERA count during the LDA positive periods in the abomasal corpus (-1.40% to
Previous studies indicated large, thin-walled, milk-filled rumens in lethal grey and white Karakul lambs. There was also a significant decrease in the number and size of the myenteric plexuses and the number of ganglion cells in these lambs. The purpose of this study was to determine whether the myenteric ganglia of the affected lambs are functional, by testing for the presence of vaso-active intestinal peptide, somatostatin, neurotensin, neuropeptide Y, met-enkephalin, calcitonin gene-related peptide and substance P in the myenteric ganglia and nerve fibres in the forestomach and abomasum of grey, white and black Karakul lambs. Four 1-cm² samples were taken from analogous areas of the wall of the rumen, reticulum, omasum and abomasum of five grey, five white and five black newborn Karakul lambs. They were pinned to wax squares, fixed for 18 h in Zambonis fixative, dehydrated and rehydrated through graded alcohols and stored in phosphate-buffered saline. The outer longitudinal muscle layer of ...
The abomasum (or true stomach) normally lies on the floor of the abdomen, but can become filled with gas and rise to the top of the abdomen, when it is said to be displaced. The abomasum is more likely to be displaced to the left (LDA) than the right (RDA).. ...

All herds in the present study had generally overconditioned dry cows. Several studies have shown that overconditioned dry cows have a greater depression of feed intake ap and pp and deeper negative energy balance than cows with a lower body condition [1, 2]. In the present study 13% to 38% of the cows in all herds lost over 1.0 unit in BCS in early lactation, up to six weeks pp (Table 3). High BCS ap, as well as major losses in body condition have been associated with abomasal displacement, ketosis and other metabolism related diseases, decreased fertility and increased culling rates [2, 34, 35]. The high BCS ap and loss of BCS pp in all 5 herds most likely were major contributing factors to the herd problems with metabolic disorders.. Assessing the metabolic blood profiles may aid in investigating the herd problems by indicating the severity and timing of disturbed energy metabolism. Thus herds A and C had higher levels of NEFA ap than the other herds, for herd C mainly during the last week ...
When a goat kid is born, the rumen is small and the abomasum is the largest of the four stomach compartments. The rumen of a goat kid is about 30 percent of the total stomach area, while the abomasum is about 70 percent. Hence, digestion in the goat kid is like that of a monogastric animal. In the suckling goat kid, closure of the esophageal groove ensures that milk is channeled directly to the abomasum instead of going through the rumen, reticulum, and omasum. Peptic cells in the abomasum of young milk-fed ruminants secrete, in addition to pepsin, the enzyme rennin. This enzyme is responsible for forming milk curdles and digesting milk protein ...

In tropical regions, protein supplementation is a common practice in dairy and beef farming. However, the effect of highly degradable protein in ruminal fermentation and microbial community composition has not yet been investigated in a systematic manner. In this work, we aimed to investigate the impact of casein supplementation on volatile fatty acids (VFA) production, specific activity of deamination (SAD), ammonia concentration and bacterial and archaeal community composition. The experimental design was a 4×4 Latin square balanced for residual effects, with four animals (average initial weight of 280±10 kg) and four experimental periods, each with duration of 29 days. The diet comprised Tifton 85 (Cynodon sp.) hay with an average CP content of 9.8%, on a dry matter basis. Animals received basal forage (control) or infusions of pure casein (230 g) administered direct into the rumen, abomasum or divided (50 : 50 ratio) in the rumen/abomasum. There was no differences (P,0.05) in ruminal pH ...

Play media A hairball is a small collection of hair or fur formed in the stomach of animals, and uncommonly in humans, that is occasionally vomited up when it becomes too big. Hairballs are formed from hair or fur that is delivered into stomach orally. Hairballs are primarily a tight elongated cylinder of packed fur, but may include bits of other elements such as swallowed food. Animals with hairballs are sometimes mistaken as having other conditions of the stomach such as lymphosarcoma, tuberculosis, and tumor of the spleen. Felids are especially prone to hairball formation since they groom themselves by licking their fur, and thereby ingest it. Rabbits are also prone to hairballs because they groom themselves in the same fashion as cats, but hairballs are especially dangerous for rabbits because they cannot regurgitate them. Due to the digestive systems of rabbits being very fragile, hairballs in rabbits must be treated immediately or they may cause the animal to stop feeding and ultimately ...
Left-sided displacement of the abomasum (LDA) is a common disease in many dairy cattle breeds. A genome-wide screen for QTL for LDA in German Holstein (GH) cows indicated motilin (MLN) as a candidate gene on bovine chromosome 23. Genomic DNA sequence analysis of MLN revealed a total of 32 polymorphisms. All informative polymorphisms used for association analyses in a random sample of 1,136 GH cows confirmed MLN as a candidate for LDA. A single nucleotide polymorphism (FN298674:g.90T|C) located within the first non-coding exon of bovine MLN affects a NKX2-5 transcription factor binding site and showed significant associations (ORallele = 0.64; −log10Pallele = 6.8, −log10Pgenotype = 7.0) with LDA. An expression study gave evidence of a significantly decreased MLN expression in cows carrying the mutant allele (C). In individuals heterozygous or homozygous for the mutation, MLN expression was decreased by 89% relative to the wildtype. FN298674:g.90T|C may therefore play a role in bovine LDA via the
Many owners know that cats can have a hairball or two, but do you know why? Better yet, do you know how to get rid of them? This blog can help answer those cat hairball questions.. While there are many jokes surrounding hairballs, they are no laughing matter. Hairballs in cats arent just unpleasant to clean up, they can cause some serious blockages in the intestinal tract if they arent removed-one way or another.. A hairball results from the grooming routine of your pet. When a cat grooms itself, tiny hook-like structures grab dead hair and loose hair. The animal then swallows all that hair! It sounds gross to us humans, but as the saying goes, "a cat has got to do what a cat has got to do." For the most part, the hair that your pet swallows usually passes easily through the entire digestive tract and ends up in the litter box. However, the problem is when some of the hair remains in the stomach and doesnt get passed through. That particular bunch of hair results in the vomited hairball that ...
ANSWER: How Do I Treat My Dogs Hairballs? A hairball rattling round in the stomach causes irritation. Giving a gentle lubricant (such as a liquid paraffin product designed for relieve hairballs in cats) can help the dog to bring it up. Hairballs that are stuck in the gut require surgical removal by
The internal mucosa has a honeycomb shape. When looking at the reticulum with ultrasonography it is a crescent shaped structure with a smooth contour.[2] The reticulum is adjacent to the diaphragm, lungs, abomasum, rumen and liver. The heights of the reticular crests and depth of the structures vary across ruminant animal species.[3] Grazing ruminants have higher crests than browsers. However, general reticulum size is fairly constant across ruminants of differing body size and feeding type. In a mature cow, the reticulum can hold around 5 gallons of liquid. The rumen and reticulum are very close in structure and function and can be considered as one organ. They are separated only by a muscular fold of tissue. In immature ruminants a reticular groove is formed by the muscular fold of the reticulum. This allows milk to pass by the reticulorumen straight into the abomasum. ...

Hairballs in cats The elusive and very unpleasant hairball is something that every cat owner will experience at some point. Cats in general are very clean and well-kept animals and grooming is an essential routine for them to ensure their cleanliness. A healthy cat is one that grooms. Hairballs are simply a by-product of your cats hygiene. A trichobezoar, commonly known as a hairball, is a clump of indigestible hair, moistened by bile and digestive fluid that may or may not contain bits of food or other foreign material. Hairballs are not usually round in shape but rather drawn-out and the shape of a sausage. This is due to their passage through the oesophagus, the tube connecting the stomach to the mouth, which is long and cylindrical. Hairballs can occasionally resemble faeces but on closer examination one will notice it is made up of hair. It also does not smell like faeces although it does not have a particularly pleasant odour.

2/10. I didnt sleep at all last night, but arose in a bit of a groggy state to talk to another Ultrasound tech who checked me again for blood flow. Once again, my vein clotted up overnight, much to my and Dr. Aratas disappointment. OK, again back to the NPO (no food or drink) and into the Cath lab at about 5:30. This time, Dr. Arata installed an infusion catheter from my right groin leading up to my left jugular. An infusion catheter is a bit like a garden soaker hose that will distribute medication directly to the area its needed. The medication is TPA (Tissue Plasminogen Activator), which is a blood thinner that not only prevents clots, but actually melts clots away. TPA is usually used in stroke patients to help melt clots. Its a powerful medication, but the bad news was it has to be administered in the infusion catheter which required I keep my leg straight and not lift my head. Furthermore, TPA is so powerful and the risk of bleeding so profuse that I had to be placed into the ICU and ...
Colostrum Ingestion: colostrum in the lambs abomasum immediately caudal to the costal arch can readily be detected by gentle palpation. For every Kg of body weight, 200mls of colostrum should be consumed during the first 24 hours of life. 50mls/kg is required in the first few hours of birth. If the lamb has not nursed then methods should be undertaken to promote it to happen. Firstly, restrain the ewe and point the lamb towards the teat to see if the nursing will take place. If not then a bottle may be needed. If it is an emergency, a stomach tube should be used to give milk stripped from a dam, another ewe or bovine colostrum ...
lamprey in Florence, via De Macci: Lampredotto is a typical Florentine peasant dish, made from the fourth and final stomach of a cow, the abomasum. Lampredotto is derived from the Italian word for lamprey eels, lampreda, once very abundant in the waters of the Arno River, as the tripe resembles a cooked lamprey in shape and color. Lampredotto was originally a poor persons and workmans sandwich.

The Awl-which I totally and unabashedly love-has a piece on the over-promise and under-delivery of personal genomics. Its a familiar meme and probably not news to Genomeboy readers (both of you!) that a fair number of folks feel this way. I have some sympathy for the "too much hype" argument, especially in light of how complicated common diseases and traits have turned out to be and how the personal genomics industry (if we can still call it that) has declined to come together to develop standards, choosing instead to fend off the annual sabre-rattling by the FDA on an ad hoc basis.. As I recall, I spent a long time on the phone with the Awl writer and said many things, including this:. "It turns out to be just a total fucking mess. So instead of having this linear icon representing human biology, the most potent symbol now is the hairball.". If we are talking only about type 2 diabetes or human height or Crohns disease or certain forms of cancer, then yes, I wholeheartedly stand behind the ...

Preventing hairballs-or their aftermath-helps keep cats healthy (and floors clean).. This April 25 marks the ninth year cat lovers will celebrate National Hairball Awareness Day. It is interesting to note that felines arent the only hairball expellers; rabbits do, too. So do cud-chewing animals such as cows, oxen, sheep, goats, llamas, deer and antelopes. And-wait for it-people, too! A human hairball is called a trichobezoar. Its common in people who compulsively play with their hair and swallow it.. Now, this is not a day you want to celebrate by being greeted by a big hairball presented by your cat. A celebration would be NOT waking up to a hairball on the rug.. Most cats are able to expel hairballs by vomiting them up. But often that is the tip of the iceberg of hair-so to speak. Ingested hair can cause a serious blockage in the intestinal tract and lead to all sorts of complications.. Its so important to remember that while cats are self-groomers, they still need help from their pet ...

preventable, while others are hereditary.. Hairballs. Hairballs are among the most common of cat health problems. Cats groom themselves almost constantly, and swallow the loose hair that comes off their tongues. Occasionally, the hair gathers into a ball and lodges in the cats digestive tract instead of passing on through the body. If your cat starts coughing and hacking, he probably has a hairball. While the end product is unpleasant for the owner, most cats dont have a problem dislodging hairballs.. However, hairballs can occasionally pass into a cats intestines and cause a blockage. This can be a life-threatening problem. There are a few signs to look for to see if your cats hairball is dangerous. If your cat is constipated, off his feed, or is lethargic with a dull coat, then he could have a serious blockage. A vet exam is definitely in order.. To prevent hairballs, groom your cat frequently to remove loose hair. In addition, feed your cat food that helps control hairballs.. Worms. For ...

Profiling of bovine micrornas from immune related and embryonic tissues [abstract]. International Conference on Animal Genetics. pp. C329. Interpretive Summary: Technical Abstract: MicroRNAs (miR) are small non-coding RNA transcripts (~22 nucleotides long) that have been shown to modulate diverse cell functions by interfering with translation and/or targeting mRNA for degradation. Since there is no information regarding microRNAs in bovine, we characterized this new class of RNA using tissues important for immune response and embryonic development. Alignment of human microRNA stem loop sequences (mir) against the bovine genome resulted in identification of 221 predicted bovine mirs. We validated some of these predictions by constructing and sequencing 3,209 cDNA clones made from small RNA fractions of bovine embryo, thymus, small intestine, abomasum, and mesenteric ...
If your cat has a cough it may be a precursor to a sticky hairball surprise on your bedroom floor...or it could be feline asthma, a potentially life threatening condition. Asthma is the most common cat respiratory disorder we see in veterinary medicine and affects about 1% of our feline friends. Typical signs include a hunched position with a cough sound or spells of rapid breathing with abdominal effort (heaving breaths). During a serious episode cats will often breath through their mouths which is always abnormal since a contented kitty breathes only through his or her nostrils. Episodes can be so severe that the animal may collapse and turn bluish-purple due to lack of oxygen ...

ay for 2.5 weeks before parturition. Litter size was recorded at parturition. The worm burden was determined and mucosal tissue samples for local immune cells collected at weeks +1 and +3 relative to parturition, with five animals slaughtered at each time from each group. The animals in the high protein group had a lower faecal egg count (FEC), lower worm burdens of T. circumcincta and T. colubriformis, more intestinal mucosal mast cells and globule leukocytes than their low protein counterparts. Single bearing ewes lost less bodyweight after lambing, had a lower FEC and more intestinal globule leukocytes than multiple bearing ewes. A significant interaction of protein treatment x litter size on FEC showed that single bearing ewes fed the high protein level markedly suppressed FEC. Vaccination induced a higher parasite specific antibody response (in serum total antibody, IgE and IgA, and saliva total antibody and IgA) in the vaccination period. The vaccinated animals also had a lower number of ...
The cows digestive tract consists of the mouth, esophagus, a complex four-compartment stomach, small intestine and large intestine (figure 1). The stomach includes the rumen or paunch, reticulum or honeycomb, the omasum or manyplies, and the abomasum or true stomach. The rumen. The rumen (on the left side of the animal) is the largest of four compartments and is divided into several sacs. It can hold 25 gallons or more of material, depending on the size of the cow. Because of its size, the rumen acts as a storage or holding vat for feed. It is also a fermentation vat. A microbial population in the rumen digests or ferments feed eaten by the animal. Conditions within the rumen favor the growth of microbes. The rumen absorbs most of the volatile fatty acids produced from fermentation of feedstuffs by rumen microbes. Absorption of volatile fatty acids and some other products of digestion is enhanced by a good blood supply to the walls of the rumen. Tiny projections called papillae increase ...

Hair is not an easily digested "food". Hair can mix with undigested food in the intestinal tract and cause an occlusion and possibly constipation. High fiber diets may help your cat eliminate the hairballs easier. However, high fiber diets may be problematic for the digestive tract of your pet. Opt for a diet that contains fibers but also a fat emulsifier that will facilitate the digestion. Soy lecithin is an effective fat emulsifier that can be fed to cats. Canned pumpkin contains a lot of fibers and it is also wet, so it can facilitate the digestion. Get canned pumpkin that doesnt contain sugar. ...
Since the hairball is a secondary finding and often not the true cause of the problem, then the treatment needs to be aimed at the primary cause.. Whilst this is being identified it is imperative that the rabbit receives adequate fluid therapy (often intravenous fluids are the best route) syringe feeding or naso-oesophageal tube feeding if the rabbit is unwilling to accept syringe feeding, pain killers (analgesia), medication to keep and encourage the digestive system to start or keep moving (prokinetic medication) and encouragement to eat by offering lots of fresh hay, grass, greens, etc. Investigations to identify the primary cause may include: a thorough dental examination, often requiring sedation, x-rays of the spine and hips/pelvis to look for arthritic or spondylosis changes, skull x-rays to assess the tooth roots, blood tests and a thorough history from the owner to ascertain if any stressful occurrence has happened recently to explain the rabbits condition.. If a true hairball is ...
It is difficult to diagnose trichobezoar at initial stages. The ingested hair are trapped in the folds of GIT.

My feeling is that one or two vomits per month means that you are a cat.". Oh yeah, baby.. Dr. Jeff Latimer posted his sentiment about cat vomiting/hairball frequency in a message board of the Veterinary Information Network (VIN), an online community for veterinarians. "If it is more than this, or if it is increasing, there is likely some low-grade chronic cause, that if we find and fix, we are minimizing the chance for malignancy in the future.". If a cat is tossing up hairballs with wild abandon, there is more going on than most cat owners realize.. Dr. Latimer asked for the opinion of other veterinarians: "If you have a cat who has five hairballs per month all year long, do you want to work him up?". Even veterinarians are not exactly sure how much hairball tossing is copious or just a bit much, or when something should be done about it.. Feline specialist Dr. Michele Gaspar said that in her opinion it seems as though more colleagues are tuning in to the fact that cats are not a "normally ...

acr, I did try warming up the wet food for a few seconds in the microwave, but she wasnt interested. She only threw up the hairball/spit in like a 2 hour period of time last Tuesday, but then she did it again on Friday morning (no hairball this time, just the Purina DM wet cat food I fed her for breakfast and then the spit stuff again), which is why I took her to the vet. The vet seemed to think that her vomiting the hairball caused esophagitis because of the stomach acid, so thats why she gave her the kitty Pepcid and anti-nausea meds, but she didnt seem to think there was anything deeper going on. So, it could just be that her esophagus is still bothering her and thats why she doesnt want to eat. The only reason I was thinking that she was being picky is that this morning she was sitting at her food dish, and then shed sniff her food, then give me sad eyes, sniff her food again, etc. Im not an expert in cat-communications, but it seemed like she was saying, Im hungry, but this food ...
What cat owner doesnt occasionally come home to a surprise pile of vomit, usually on their best chair or Persian rug?. It is not unusual to see a hairball every so often even when we think we are being diligent about brushing and grooming our cats. Cats shed their hair based upon both increasing daylight hours and warmer temperatures so consequently, indoor cats may shed all year round. For long-haired cats that tend to shed and form mats in their coats, clipping hair from the underside and backside (sanitary clip) can cut down on unpleasant grooming at home. Lion shaves are also recommended to reduce hairballs in long haired cats.. Stress such as a move to a new household, introduction of a new pet, construction or seeing outdoor cats through a window can increase shedding. Most importantly, internal or external parasites (worms or fleas), skin disorders or any illness can cause your cat to excessively lick or groom themselves or to lose more hair than usual. If your cat is vomiting hairballs ...
A trichobezoar is a technical reference for a mat of hair that has been ingested, and that is often combined with thick or undigested food. It is located in the stomach and/or intestines.
Pigs are herbivores who graze continually. If they go without food for too long their liver starts to shut down/have problems functioning properly. Their digestive system is designed for continual operation. Because it is often a while after surgery before they eat again fasting them puts them at too high a risk for liver problems. I think after 12 hours without food the liver might start to be affected. Not totally sure on the time span though. Blood panels we´ve had done on ill pigs ALWAYS show a compromised liver when their food intake has been reduced ...

This Daily Kos diary is full of recommendations from pet owners for healthier foods. Fortunately, I was not feeding my animal pals any of the items on the list, but after reading jhritzs diary, I definitely began to question what I had been feeding them -- high priced branded food that turns out to be just the same as the store house brands, with animal by-products listed among the ingredients. So I switched to Wellness brand food over the weekend. My cat, Caliban (as seen above), has had hairball problems since the day I got him from a rescue society. Its early days, but so far, the new food is staying down and so are the hairballs. Oberon, the huskador retriever, will eat anything so his change of diet at the moment is more comforting to me than to him. I will be keeping close tabs on both of them over the coming weeks ...

One evening, after grilling some beef kabobs, I enjoyed one chunk too much - and began to choke. My wife Laura came to my rescue, put her arms around me from behind and squeezed. And at least six more times. The chunk remained, but her moves gave me a tiny bit of an airway. She called 911 while I went to the floor, hacking like a cat with a hairball ...

Metazoan parasites have to survive in many different niches in order to complete their life-cycles. In the absence of reliable methods to manipulate parasite genomes and/or proteomes, identification of the molecules critical for parasite survival within these niches has largely depended on comparative transcriptomic and proteomic analyses of different developmental stages of the parasite; however, changes may reflect differences associated with transition between developmental stages rather than specific adaptations to a particular niche. In this study, we compared the transcriptome of two fourth-stage larval populations of the nematode parasite, Teladorsagia circumcincta, which were of the same developmental stage but differed in their location within the abomasum, being either mucosal-dwelling (MD) or lumen-dwelling (LD). Using RNAseq, we identified 57 transcripts which were significantly differentially expressed between MD and LD larvae. Of these transcripts, the majority (54/57) were up-regulated in
Some of the proteins predicted to be parasite- or nematode-specific were identified by similarity searches of rESTs and these proteins in parasitic nematodes were either absent from or very different from the corresponding molecules in their host(s).. Comparative analysis was carried out to identify homologues in C. elegans, the best characterized nematode in relation to its genome, genetics, biology, physiology, biochemistry as well as the localization and functions of molecules Wormbase [39]. This study showed that 7,537 of them were mapped to key biological pathways including oxidative phosphorylation, peptidases and the ribosomal protein assembly pathway. Oxidative phosphorylation relates to genes that encode NADH dehydrogenases, succinate dehydrogenases, cytochrome c oxidases, cytochrome c reductases, ATPases and ATP synthases (complexes I-V) [40]. Several peptidases are known to play a vital role in the moulting process [41], these include metallo-peptidases that might be candidates for ...

To understand networks visually, we need to see their structure directly, not by proxy of a layout algorithm based on aesthetics. Hairballs turn complex data into visualizations that are just as complex, or even more so. Hairballs can even seduce us to believe that they carry a high information value. But, just because they look complex does not mean that they can communicate complex information. Hairballs are the junk food of network visualization - they have very low nutritional value, leaving the user hungry. In a hairball, data is subordinate to layout - node and edge positions and lengths depend as much on the layout algorithm (of which there are many), as on the data. The effect of layout rules is difficult to predict, making direct comparisons of these visualizations impossible. For example, imagine trying to compare two scatter plots in which the ordinality of the scales were altered (e.g. x = 1, 2, 3, ... in one and x = 3, 1, 2, ... in the other). As a result, a great deal of detail ...

The decision, written to the Corn Refiners Association and considered a backtrack for the FDA by organizations opposed to the ingredient, followed a meeting that was prompted by a FoodNavigator-USA.com article published in April this year. At that time, Geraldine June, supervisor of the product evaluation and labeling team at FDAs Office of Nutrition, Labeling and Dietary Supplements, responded to an inquiry made by FoodNavigator-USA.com saying "we would object to the use of the term natural on a product containing HFCS", because it is produced using synthetic fixing agents.However, June has now said that when HFCS is made using the process presented by Archer Daniels Midland Company, it can be considered natural.The process sees the enzymes for making HFCS being fixed to a column by the use of a synthetic fixing agent called glutaraldehyde. However, this agent does not come into contact with the high dextrose equivalent corn starch hydrolysate and so it is not "considered to be included or ...
Hydrocoat; Polyurethane catheters are available with a Hydromer coating and rounded tip. The Hydromer coating is a hydrogel material made by the interaction of poly-vinylpyrrolidone and an isocyanate prepolymer. The coating is covalently bonded via a gentle termal cure providing a slippery surface when wet, virtually eliminating friction. This improves the ease of insertion and minimizes vessel trauma. The lubricity descreases the tendency of platelets, proteins and encrust to adhere to the surface reducing the potential for occlusion. Tests have shown that bacterial adhesion is significantly decreased on a Hydromer coated catheter reducing the potential for infection.
