Evaluation of PCR as a means of identification of Pasteurella pneumotropica. (1/746)

A polymerase chain reaction with new primers (new PCR) designed from Pasteurella pneumotropica 16S rDNA as an identification system for this organism was compared with the PCR reported by Wang et al. (Wang's PCR) by using 15 bacterial reference species and 70 clinical isolates with the conventional identification system. For the 15 reference strains, both PCRs were identical. For the 70 clinical isolates, the new PCR and Wang's PCR showed consistency with the conventional system in 62.9% (44/70) and 51.4% (36/70), respectively. Twenty-six isolates were inconsistent with the conventional system and the new PCR with respect to morphology and serology. These findings suggested that the new PCR was more sensitive than Wang's PCR, and the new PCR in combination with morphology and serology is useful for P. pneumotropica identification.  (+info)

Opportunistic Pneumocystis carinii infection in red-bellied tamarins (Saguinus labiatus). (2/746)

P. carinii infection in red-bellied tamarins (Saguinus labiatus), born and maintained in a laboratory breeding colony, was examined by histopathologic examination postmortem. P. carinii cysts were detected in 6 of 10 red-bellied tamarins examined, by using Grocott's, toluidine blue O and immunostaining with avidin-biotin complex using antisera for rat-, simian-, and human-P. carinii. The results obtained from the present studies imply that P. carinii may be an important pathogen in this species.  (+info)

Microsatellite loci in wild-type and inbred Strongylocentrotus purpuratus. (3/746)

Strongylocentrotus purpuratus, a major research model in developmental molecular biology, has been inbred through six generations of sibling matings. Though viability initially decreased, as described earlier, the inbred line now consists of healthy, fertile animals. These are intended to serve as a genomic resource in which the level of polymorphism is decreased with respect to wild S. purpuratus. To genotype the inbred animals eight simple sequence genomic repeats were isolated, in context, and PCR primers were generated against the flanking single-copy sequences. Distribution and polymorphism of these regions of the genome were studied in the genomes of 27 wild individuals and in a sample of the inbred animals at F2 and F3 generations. All eight regions were polymorphic, though to different extents, and their homozygosity was increased by inbreeding as expected. The eight markers suffice to identify unambiguously the cellular DNA of any wild or F3 S. purpuratus individual.  (+info)

Infection of laboratory mice with the human granulocytic ehrlichiosis agent does not induce antibodies to diagnostically significant Borrelia burgdorferi antigens. (4/746)

Laboratory diagnosis of Borrelia burgdorferi is routinely made by an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay, with positive results confirmed by Western blot analysis. Concern has been raised that false-positive diagnoses may be made on the basis of serologic cross-reactivity with antibodies directed against other bacterial pathogens, in particular the agent of human granulocytic ehrlichiosis (HGE). The present study made use of a mouse model to ascertain the validity of these concerns. Two different strains of mice were inoculated with the HGE agent and assayed for production of polyclonal and monoclonal antibodies to antigens of both of these bacteria. Infection of mice with the HGE agent does not induce diagnostically significant B. burgdorferi serologic cross-reactions.  (+info)

Genetics of mouse behavior: interactions with laboratory environment. (5/746)

Strains of mice that show characteristic patterns of behavior are critical for research in neurobehavioral genetics. Possible confounding influences of the laboratory environment were studied in several inbred strains and one null mutant by simultaneous testing in three laboratories on a battery of six behaviors. Apparatus, test protocols, and many environmental variables were rigorously equated. Strains differed markedly in all behaviors, and despite standardization, there were systematic differences in behavior across labs. For some tests, the magnitude of genetic differences depended upon the specific testing lab. Thus, experiments characterizing mutants may yield results that are idiosyncratic to a particular laboratory.  (+info)

Production of ex-germfree rabbits for establishment of specific pathogen-free (SPF) colonies. (6/746)

Nine groups of ex-germfree (GF) rabbits were produced by inoculation of hysterectomy-derived GF rabbits with various combinations of cecal bacteria isolated from conventional (CV) rabbits in order to establish a barrier-sustained colony. Six strains of Bacteroides and two strains of Streptococcus isolated from CV rabbits (2 to 3 weeks old) were used for pretreatment. The mortality of ex-GF rabbits inoculated with the anaerobic growth (CF) on EG or SM10 plates inoculated with a 10(-5) dilution of cecal contents was 71.4 to 94.4% when given without pretreatment. All ex-GF rabbits pretreated with Bacteroides alone survived, but the mortality of ex-GF rabbits inoculated with Bacteroides plus Streptococcus strains as pretreatment was 20 and 45.4%. The mortality of ex-GF rabbits inoculated with only Bacteroides was 43%. All ex-GF rabbits inoculated with Bacteroides plus anaerobic growth (CF), cecal suspension of ex-GF mice which had been inoculated with cecal suspensions of CV rabbits (MF) or chloroform-treated cecal suspension (CHF) survived, but CHF inoculated ex-GF rabbits were in an unhealthy condition with slight diarrhoea. These data indicate that inoculation with Bacteroides strains as pretreatment plus CF or MF was required to convert GF rabbits to the normal state.  (+info)

Establishment of specific pathogen-free rabbit colonies with limited-flora rabbits associated with conventional rabbit flora, and monitoring of their cecal flora. (7/746)

In the present study we attempted to establish specific-pathogen-free (SPF) rabbit breeding colonies with two groups of limited-flora (LF) rabbits, both ex-germfree rabbits, and their offspring. Two groups of LF rabbits associated with cecal flora of conventional (CV) rabbits produced in a previous study [Exp. Animals, submitted], were transferred to individual barrier rooms and some of the LF rabbits were accommodated in isolators to maintain the basic flora for SPF rabbits. The composition of the cecal flora of LF rabbits was stable for a long period; bacteroides remained predominant and clostridia dominant. From the SPF rabbits, different types of bacteria, e.g., enterobacteriaceae and streptococci, which could not be isolated in the isolator were detected at a low population level at an early stage in the establishment of the SPF colonies, but the basic composition of the cecal flora was mainly bacteroidaceae and clostridia and did not change over a long period, and the floral composition became similar to that of CV rabbits. The fertility and weaning rates of the SPF rabbits were satisfactory for a SPF rabbit colony. In addition, these SPF colonies were free of more than one year rabbit-specific pathogens.  (+info)

Leukocyte differential analysis in multiple laboratory species by a laser multi-angle polarized light scattering separation method. (8/746)

Leukocyte differential analysis was performed in various species, particularly laboratory animals, by the laser multi-angle polarized light scattering separation method. Venous blood specimens were drawn from the following subjects: healthy adult men and women ("humans"); cynomolgus monkeys ("monkeys"); common marmosets ("marmosets"); beagle dogs ("dogs"); miniature potbelly pigs ("swine"); Japanese white rabbits ("rabbits"); Hartley guinea pigs ("guinea pigs"); and Sprague-Dawley rats ("rats"). 90 degrees/10 degrees scatter plot: Basophils and mononuclear-polymorphonuclear cells were separated in all subjects, but individual 10 degrees and 90 degrees scatter plots overlapped in dogs and guinea pigs, respectively. 90 degrees depolarized /90 degrees scatter plot: Neutrophils and eosinophils were clearly separated in human, monkey, guinea pig, swine and rat subjects. The eosinophil cluster was not clearly plotted in marmoset, dog, or rabbit. 0 degree/10 degrees scatter plot: Regarding this plot for monocytes and lymphocytes, cells were plotted in the following order in all subjects: lymphocytes < basophils < or = monocytes in the 0 degree (size) scatter; and lymphocytes [symbol: see text] monocytes < or = basophils in the 10 degrees (complexity) scatter. Compared to other species, the rat scatter showed a tendency to overlapping plots in both the 0 degree and 10 degrees scatters in the monocyte and lymphocyte clusters. In both dog and guinea pig, the monocyte and neutrophil plots overlapped in the 0 degree and 10 degrees scatters. Basobox: In the human and rabbit subjects, the basophil cluster was plotted within the established basobox, but no clear cell cluster was plotted in the other subjects. As a result of comparing the percentage values for leukocytes in various species obtained by using the CD3500 apparatus versus the corresponding values obtained manually, good correspondence was found in the monkey, and eosinophils in the marmoset were lower with CD3500 than manually. In the rabbit, the mean measured value for basophils matched in the manual and CD3500 findings. In the guinea pig, the CD3500 values were lower than the manual values for lymphocytes, but higher for monocytes and neutrophils. The above findings suggest that the laser multi-angle polarized light scattering separation method is indeed capable of analyzing leukocytes from various species based on cell size and cell complexity, i.e., the presence or absence of nuclei, granules and cell enclosures.  (+info)

A 3-month-old male cat in the animal facility was presented for investigation of anorexia and occasional vomiting. We collected the specimens from gastroscopic biopsy and stool collection. The gastroscopic biopsy specimens were tested using a rapid urease test, CLO Helicobacter-detection kits. Stool specimens were gathered and evaluated using the commercially available SD Bioline H. pylori Ag kit according to the manufacturers instructions. Genomic DNAs from gastroscopic biopsy and stool specimens of the cat were extracted and submitted to the consensus PCR to amplify Helicobacter rpoB gene. Then the DNAs from gastroscopic biopsy and stool specimens were conducted a multiplex species-specific PCR to amplify urease B gene for H. heilmannii, H. pylori and H. felis. As the results, the rapid urease test with gastroscopic biopsy was revealed positive reaction. The result of H. pylori Stool Ag assay was one red line, negative for H. pylori. The gastroscopic biopsy and stool specimen were positive reactions

N2 - Background: A suitable, effective and free of complications anesthetic protocol is very important in experimental studies on animal models since it could bias the outcome of a trial. To date there is no universally accepted protocol for induction, maintenance and recovery from anesthesia. The endotracheal intubation with the use of inhalation anesthesia is used very especially in the from of large size laboratory animals, because it is a secure and easy control mode. However, it is not common for small laboratory animals because of the high technical skills required. Aim: The aim of this paper is a review of the main methods of induction of anesthesia in laboratory animals. Materials and methods: We performed ...
An adult feline blood donor, group-housed in a closed colony with other blood donor cats in a laboratory animal facility, developed anorexia, abdominal pain, an abdominal mass effect, and hemorrhagic diarrhea. Ultimately Salmonella infection was diagnosed. The index cat and 2 additional cats in the closed colony had clinical signs consistent with Salmonella and yielded Salmonella serotype 4,12:i:- in fecal cultures. An extensive search for the source of Salmonella was unrewarding. With the implementation of individual housing and additional barrier precautions, combined with antibiotic treatment of the index case, all the cats survived and subsequently had multiple, negative Salmonella PCR test results. This case report highlights the potential for unlikely infections to occur, even in a closed colony of research animals, as well as the important role of sanitation in the elimination of this enteric pathogen ...
Xenopus laevis, the African clawed frog, is commonly used in developmental and toxicology research studies. Little information is available on aged X. laevis; however, with the complete mapping of the genome and the availability of transgenic animal models, the number of aged animals in research colonies is increasing. The goals of this study were to obtain biochemical and hematologic parameters to establish reference intervals for aged X. laevis and to compare results with those from young adult X. laevis. Blood samples were collected from laboratory reared, female frogs (n = 52) between the ages of 10 and 14 y. Reference intervals were generated for 30 biochemistry analytes and full hematologic analysis; these data were compared with prior results for young X. laevis from the same vendor. Parameters that were significantly higher in aged compared with young frogs included calcium, calcium:phosphorus ratio, total protein, albumin, HDL, amylase, potassium, CO2, and uric acid. Parameters found to ...

The potential application of systems analysis to animal breeding program design is reviewed and discussed. The quantitative nature of animal breeding facilitates computer modeling. Since breeding program design involves the integration of several sub-systems, modeling seems a practical alternative and complement to experimentation to address the complex questions and potential interactions involved. The relative merits of computer modeling and laboratory animal modeling are discussed with value seen for both. Some areas suggested as being worthy of such approaches are 1) definition of bio-economic objective, 2) interactions between genetic characteristics and management, 3) costs versus returns for complex selection schemes, 4) interactions between crossbreeding and selection response, 5) interactions between selection and expansion, 6) implications of enhanced reproduction. Examples of computer simulation studies and potential laboratory animal studies to address some of these questions and ...

Adolescence is a conserved developmental period characterized by ontogenetic alterations in brain and behavior that often bear notable similarities across species, including increases in peer-directed social behaviors, risk-taking, as well as elevated per occasion use of alcohol. Studies using a rodent model of adolescence have shown that, seemingly due in part to age differences in brain function and in expression of acute tolerance, adolescents are more resistant than are adults to alcohol effects that normally serve as cues to moderate drinking, while conversely showing greater sensitivity to ethanol-induced social stimulation. To the extent that these findings in laboratory animals are relevant to human adolescents, this developmental blending of enhanced/attenuated ethanol sensitivities may encourage relatively high levels of consumption, particularly among adolescents who are otherwise at risk for especially elevated alcohol intake because of genetic or environmentally associated ...

The anthracycline doxorubicin (DOX) is an exceptionally good antineoplastic agent, but its use is limited by formation of metabolites which induce acute and chronic cardiac toxicities. Whereas the acute toxicity is mild, the chronic toxicity can produce a life-threatening cardiomyopathy. Studies in laboratory animals are of limited value in predicting the structure and reactivity of toxic metabolites in humans; therefore, we used an ethically acceptable system which is suitable for exploring DOX metabolism in human myocardium. The system involves cytosolic fractions from myocardial samples obtained during aorto-coronary bypass grafting. After reconstitution with NADPH and DOX, these fractions generate the alcohol metabolite doxorubicinol (DOXol) as well as DOX deoxyaglycone and DOXol hydroxyaglycone, reflecting reduction of the side chain carbonyl group, reductase-type deglycosidation of the anthracycline, and hydrolase-type deglycosidation followed by carbonyl reduction, respectively. The ...

While at MIT, Ira and I concentrated mostly on the E. coli mutant Gro15. Although the vast majority of λcl− phage are unable to form plaques on this strain, I noted the appearance, at an approximate frequency of 10−7, of phage mutants that were able to somehow compensate for the gro15 block. Interestingly, none of the phage mutants isolated on Gro15 formed plaques on our other mutant, GroC3. Searching for clues as to their nature, I purified many of these gro15 compensatory phage mutants and tested them for growth on standard E. coli laboratory strains, including supD, supE, supF (am-suppressing), and various sup0 (nonsuppressing) wild-type bacterial hosts. To my great surprise and delight, ∼20% of these λ compensatory mutants did not form plaques on any of the wild-type sup0 E. coli tested, but did grow on all of the various am-suppressing wild-type strains. Thus, these phage compensatory mutants carried a suppressible am mutation in some essential, yet unknown, phage gene. This finding ...

Laboratory animal allergy (LAA) is an occupational disease of laboratory animal technicians and scientists. It manifests as an allergic response to animal urine, specifically the major urinary proteins (Mups) of rodents, and can lead to the development of asthma. A study of 5641 workers in Japan who were exposed to laboratory animals found 23.1% had one or more allergic symptoms; globally the prevalence among at risk workers is estimated between 11 and 30% According to the National Institutes of Health, prevention of animal allergy depends on the control of allergens in the work environment. This involves a combination of measures to eliminate or control allergen exposure, including engineering controls, administrative controls, and personal protective equipment. The protein product of the mouse Mup17 gene, known as Mus m 1, Ag1 or MA1, accounts for much of the allergenic properties of mouse urine. Similarly, the product of the rat Mup13 gene, Rat n 1, is also a potent human allergen. One study ...

Laboratory animal allergy is a serious health problem. We examined several possible allergen-reducing strategies that might be effective in the working mouse room. Ambient allergen concentrations were measured when mice were maintained under several conditions: conventional housing versus ventilated cage racks operated under negative or positive pressure. We found that housing mice in ventilated cages operated under negative pressure and using ventilated changing tables reduced ambient mouse allergen (Mus m 1) concentrations tenfold, compared with values when mice were housed in conventional caging and using a conventional (non-ventilated) changing table. Housing mice in positively pressurized cages versus conventional cages did not reduce ambient allergen values. Cleaning mouse rooms at an accelerated frequency also did not reduce ambient Mus m 1 concentration. We also quantified ambient allergen values in several areas of The Jackson Laboratory. A facility-wide survey of Mus m 1

OBJECTIVES: To study the role of exposure, atopy, and smoking in the development of laboratory animal allergy (LAA) in a retrospective cohort study. METHODS: Between 1977 and 1993, 225 people received a pre-employment screening when they started a job at a Dutch research institute where they were going to work with laboratory animals. After active follow up 136 of them (60.4%) could be traced and were sent a questionnaire with extensive questions on allergic symptoms, smoking habits, and job history. 122 people (89.7%) sent back a completed questionnaire. Those who were accepted for a job at the institute and did not have allergic symptoms at the start of the job were selected as cohort members. After selecting people with complete data on start and end date of jobs, exposure intensity, atopy, and smoking, the cohort consisted of 99 people with an average time of follow up of 9.7 years. LAA was defined as a positive response to a set of questions in the questionnaire. The mean number of hours a ...

Zoonoses, diseases transmitted between animals and humans, have been a concern in laboratory animal medicine for decades. Exposure to zoonotic organisms not only poses health risks to personnel and research animals but may also affect research integrity. Early laboratory animal programs were ineffective at excluding and preventing transmission of zoonotic diseases: the health status of the animals were often unknown, endemic diseases occurred frequently, housing conditions were less controlled, and veterinary care programs were decentralized. Over time, these conditions improved, but despite this, zoonotic diseases remain a contemporary concern. To reduce the incidence of zoonoses, management should perform an accurate risk assessment that takes into account the type of research performed, animal species used, animal sources, and housing conditions. Specific research practices, such as the use of biological materials, can also affect the risk assessment and should be considered. Once identified, ...

The Office of Laboratory Animal Welfare (OLAW) oversees compliance. (7) To receive PHS funding involving animals, each facility must provide OLAW with a written Animal Welfare Assurance of Compliance with PHS Policy. (8) …OLAW expects that institutions will adhere to the promises made and procedures described in their Assurances. (9). Facilities are expected to adhere to the Guide for the Care and Use of Laboratory Animals (commonly known as the Guide) produced by the Institute for Laboratory Animal Research (ILAR). (10). The Guide is essentially recommendations and suggestions. It states: The Guide charges users of research animals with the responsibility of achieving specified outcomes but leaves it up to them how to accomplish these goals. (11). There are no specific guidelines for nonhuman primates and little to no discussion of enrichment. For example, the brief section to no Behavioral Management for Laboratory Animals begins with the comment: The plan must address the social ...

Millions of laboratory animals are killed each year worldwide. There is an ethical, and in many countries also a legal, imperative to ensure those deaths cause minimal suffering. However, there is a lack of consensus regarding what methods of killing are humane for many species and stages of development. In 2013, an international group of researchers and stakeholders met at Newcastle University, United Kingdom to discuss the latest research and which methods could currently be considered most humane for the most commonly used laboratory species (mice, rats and zebrafish). They also discussed factors to consider when making decisions about appropriate techniques for particular species and projects, and priorities for further research. This report summarises the research findings and discussions, with recommendations to help inform good practice for humane killing.
Millions of laboratory animals are killed each year worldwide, either because their organs or tissues are required, because a humane endpoint has been reached, or because they are surplus to requirements (e.g. due overbreeding or lack of a desired genotype). There are ethical and legal reasons for ensuring that those deaths cause minimal suffering. At the same time, there is

DISULFIDE bonds in proteins-how these bonds are formed, how they are cleaved, and how they participate in protein folding-have become my passion over the past 25 years. During this period, the discoveries in my lab in this very biochemical realm have come largely from genetic approaches. Many factors have influenced the pace of our progress, including at times ignorance of certain biochemical dogma and at other times unreflective adherence to such dogma. We have been impelled by the conviction that well-thought-out genetic approaches can yield insights into how processes of protein chemistry occur in a living cell. Yet, despite our carefully constructed rational approaches, serendipity, a workhorse of science, has consistently led us in unexpected directions.. Disulfide bonds, the covalent bonds between sulfurs of cysteine residues, contribute to the folding, structure, and stability of many proteins. In gram-negative bacteria, structural disulfide bonds are found only among those proteins ...

Introduction: The morphological and functional information provided by micro-CT and micro-PET allows monitoring of acute and chronic disease states in small laboratory animals. We examined in-vivo micro-CT and micro-PET as non-invasive tools to assess pulmonary fibrosis in mice.. Material/Methods: Pulmonary fibrosis was induced in mice by intratracheal delivery of an adenoviral gene vector encoding biologically active TGF-β1. Respiratory gated and ungated micro-CT was performed in 18 mice at 1 to 4 weeks after pulmonary adenoviral gene vector delivery. In 5 additional mice 18F-FDG micro-PET and micro-CT was performed. Imaging was correlated to histopathology and findings in animals exposed to a control vector. Radiation doses were measured using thermoluminescence dosimeters.. Results: Significant correlation between Ashcroft histology scoring and micro-CT was found for visual assessment scoring (p,0.001) and automated quantification by a region growing segmentation algorithm (p=0.004 for gated ...

Methods. Animals. All experimental procedures were conducted in accordance with institutional guidelines and those of the Institute for Laboratory Animal Research (Guideline for the Care and Use of Laboratory Animals) and the US Public Health Service (Public Health Service Policy on Humane Care and Use of Laboratory Animals). Seventeen rcd1-affected dogs were used for this study. The animals were the product of 4 different litters born within one month of each other, representing affected x affected and affected x carrier matings. Disease genotype of the latter group was established by molecular diagnostic testing for the mutation in PDE6B causing rcd1 [14]. Schedules for initiation of dosing, electroretinography, enucleation, and termination of the study were adjusted so that animals of comparable ages were studied. The dogs were maintained in indoor runs with controlled cyclic illumination. Following weaning from the mother, the dogs were fed ad libitum with commercial dog food diets (Purina ...

The ethical justification of animal research requires a careful balance between the potential benefits of research against the cost to experimental animals in the form of pain or distress experienced as a result of that research. Researchers must strive to maximize animal welfare while minimizing the pain and distress of the animals involved. When laboratory animals are utilized for studies that may cause pain or distress and in which there is a scientific justification for the withholding of relief, then ethically-at least from a utilitarian perspective-the benefits must outweigh the costs.7 Despite a general acceptance of both the ethical imperative and regulatory requirements intended to maximize animal welfare, the use of effective regimens for mitigating pain remains underutilized in infectious disease research. Factors contributing to the gap between the need for and the actual use of analgesia include lack of sufficient evidence-based data on effective regimens, under-dosing due to labor ...
