Monocyte-mediated antibody-dependent cellular cytotoxicity: a clinical test of monocyte function. (1/18504)

The lack of a simple, rapid, and quantitative test of the functional activity of the monocyte has hampered studies of the contribution of this cell type to host defense and human disease. This report describes an assay of antibody-dependent cellular cytotoxicity, which depends exclusively upon the monocyte as the effector cell and therefore provides a convenient test of monocyte function. In this system, mononuclear leukocytes (MNL) obtained by Ficoll-Hypaque separation of whole blood are cytotoxic for 51Cr-labeled human erythrocyte targets coated with anti-blood group antibody. Removal of phagocytic monocytes from the MNL by iron ingestion, followed by exposure to a magnetic field, completely abolishes all cytotoxic activity from the remaining MNL population. Similarly, in severely mono-cytopenic patients with aplastic anemia, cytotoxic effector activity is absent. In normals and less severely monocytopenic aplastic anemia patients, cytotoxicity correlates significantly (p less than 0.001) with monocyte number. Application of this monocyte-mediated antibody-dependent cellular cytotoxicity assay to the study of patients with the Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome has revealed defective monocyte cytotoxic activity in spite of normal monocyte numbers, suggesting that this test may be useful for the assessment of monocyte function in a variety of clinical situations.  (+info)

Mycoplasma gallisepticum (MG324), a tylosin resistant strain of low virulence, was compared with four other strains with respect to their survival at temperatures from 46.1 to 48.9 degrees C. MG324 was found to be more resistant than the other strains tested.  (+info)

Pathological changes in chickens, ducks and turkeys fed high levels of rapeseed oil. (3/18504)

Rations containing 25% of either regular rapeseed oil (36% erucic acid), Oro rapeseed oil (1.9% erucic acid), soybean oil or a mixture of lard and corn oil were fed to chickens, ducks and turkeys. The regular rapeseed oil ration caused growth depression, increased feed conversion and anemia in all species. All the ducks and some of the chickens fed the regular rapeseed oil ration died. These dead birds were affected with hydropericardium and ascites. No deaths in the turkeys could be attributed to the regular rapeseed oil ration but some turkeys fed this ration had degenerative foci characterized by infiltrations of histiocytic and giant cells in the myocardium. Severe fatty change in the heart, skeletal muscles, spleen and kidney was found at an early age in all birds fed the regular rapeseed oil ration. Less severe fatty change but no other lesions were found in birds fed the Oro rapeseed oil and soybean oil rations.  (+info)

p50(cdc37) acting in concert with Hsp90 is required for Raf-1 function. (4/18504)

Genetic screens in Drosophila have identified p50(cdc37) to be an essential component of the sevenless receptor/mitogen-activated kinase protein (MAPK) signaling pathway, but neither the function nor the target of p50(cdc37) in this pathway has been defined. In this study, we examined the role of p50(cdc37) and its Hsp90 chaperone partner in Raf/Mek/MAPK signaling biochemically. We found that coexpression of wild-type p50(cdc37) with Raf-1 resulted in robust and dose-dependent activation of Raf-1 in Sf9 cells. In addition, p50(cdc37) greatly potentiated v-Src-mediated Raf-1 activation. Moreover, we found that p50(cdc37) is the primary determinant of Hsp90 recruitment to Raf-1. Overexpression of a p50(cdc37) mutant which is unable to recruit Hsp90 into the Raf-1 complex inhibited Raf-1 and MAPK activation by growth factors. Similarly, pretreatment with geldanamycin (GA), an Hsp90-specific inhibitor, prevented both the association of Raf-1 with the p50(cdc37)-Hsp90 heterodimer and Raf-1 kinase activation by serum. Activation of Raf-1 via baculovirus coexpression with oncogenic Src or Ras in Sf9 cells was also strongly inhibited by dominant negative p50(cdc37) or by GA. Thus, formation of a ternary Raf-1-p50(cdc37)-Hsp90 complex is crucial for Raf-1 activity and MAPK pathway signaling. These results provide the first biochemical evidence for the requirement of the p50(cdc37)-Hsp90 complex in protein kinase regulation and for Raf-1 function in particular.  (+info)

Conserved domains and lack of evidence for polyglutamine length polymorphism in the chicken homolog of the Machado-Joseph disease gene product ataxin-3. (5/18504)

Ataxin-3 is a protein of unknown function which is mutated in Machado-Joseph disease by expansion of a genetically unstable CAG repeat encoding polyglutamine. By analysis of chicken ataxin-3 we were able to identify four conserved domains of the protein and detected widespread expression in chicken tissues. In the first such analysis in a non-primate species we found that in contrast to primates, the chicken CAG repeat is short and genetically stable.  (+info)

BLNK required for coupling Syk to PLC gamma 2 and Rac1-JNK in B cells. (6/18504)

Signaling through the B cell receptor (BCR) is essential for B cell function and development. Despite the key role of Syk in BCR signaling, little is known about the mechanism by which Syk transmits downstream effectors. BLNK (B cell LiNKer protein), a substrate for Syk, is now shown to be essential in activating phospholipase C (PLC)gamma 2 and JNK. The BCR-induced PLC gamma 2 activation, but not the JNK activation, was restored by introduction of PLC gamma 2 membrane-associated form into BLNK-deficient B cells. As JNK activation requires both Rac1 and PLC gamma 2, our results suggest that BLNK regulates the Rac1-JNK pathway, in addition to modulating PLC gamma 2 localization.  (+info)

The DNA binding activity of Translin is mediated by a basic region in the ring-shaped structure conserved in evolution. (7/18504)

DNA binding proteins, for the most part, function as dimers or tetramers which recognize their target sequences. Here we show that Translin, a novel single-stranded DNA end binding protein, forms a ring-shaped structure conserved throughout evolution and that this structure is responsible for its DNA binding activity. Point mutations at Leu184 and Leu191 in the leucine zipper motif of human Translin resulted in loss of the multimeric structure and abrogation of DNA binding. Point mutations at R86, H88, H90 to T86, N88, N90 in one of the basic regions, however, completely inhibited the DNA binding activity without affecting the multimeric structure. These results support the view that the DNA binding domain of Translin is formed in the ring-shaped structure in combination with its basic region (amino acids 86-97) polypeptides.  (+info)

Regulation of AMP deaminase from chicken erythrocytes. A kinetic study of the allosteric interactions. (8/18504)

The allosteric properties of AMP deaminase [EC 3.5.4.6] from chicken erythrocytes have been qualitatively and quantitatively accounted for by the concerted transition theory of Monod et al., on the assumption that this enzyme has different numbers of binding sites for each ligand. Theoretical curves yield a satisfactory fit for all experimental saturation functions with respect to activation by alkali metals and inhibition by Pi, assuming that the numbers of binding sites for AMP, alkali metals, and Pi are 4, 2, and 4, respectively. The enzyme was inhibited by concentrations of ATP and GTP below 0.1 and 0.25 mM, respectively, whereas activation of the enzyme was observed at ATP and GTP concentrations above 0.4 and 1.5 mM, respectively. These unusual kinetics with respect to ATP and GTP could be also accounted for by assuming 2 inhibitory and 4 activating sites for each ligand.  (+info)

N2 - The chicken B cell line DT40 undergoes hypermutation of immunoglobulin variable region (IgV) genes during culture, thereby constituting an antibody (Ab) library. We previously established an in vitro Ab generation system using an engineered line DT40-SW whose hypermutation machinery can be switched on and off. Abs for various antigens (Ags) can be obtained from the DT40-SW library and the specificity of the Ag-specific clones can be stabilized by stopping hypermutation. Furthermore, the affinity of obtained monoclonal Abs (mAbs) can be improved through further mutation followed by selection, a process analogous to "affinity maturation" that occurs in vivo. Although gene ...
MTILENI, B.J. et al. A comparison of genetic diversity between South African conserved and field chicken populations using microsatellite markers. S. Afr. j. anim. sci. [online]. 2010, vol.40, n.5, pp.462-466. ISSN 2221-4062.. The objective of the study was to determine genetic diversity within South African indigenous chicken populations and the effectiveness of the current conservation flocks in capturing the available diversity in the founder populations. Two chicken populations, Venda (VD_C) and Ovambo (OV_C) conservation flocks (n = 56) from the Animal Production Institute in Irene and two founder population from which these conservation flocks were sampled; Venda (VD_F) and Ovambo (OV_F) field populations (n = 72) were genotyped for 29 autosomal microsatellite markers. All microsatellites typed were found to be polymorphic. A total of 213 alleles were observed for all four populations. The mean number of alleles per population ranged from 3.52 ± 1.09 (VD_C) to 6.62 ± 3.38 (OV_F). Mean ...
It is postulated that chickens (Gallus gallus domesticus) became domesticated from wild junglefowls in Southeast Asia nearly 10,000 years ago. Based on 19 individual samples covering various chicken breeds, red junglefowl (G. g. gallus), and green junglefowl (G. varius), we address the origin of domestic chickens, the relative roles of ancestral polymorphisms and introgression, and the effects of artificial selection on the domestic chicken genome. DNA sequences from 30 introns at 25 nuclear loci are determined for both diploid chromosomes from a majority of samples. The phylogenetic analysis shows that the DNA sequences of chickens, red and green junglefowls formed reciprocally monophyletic clusters. The Markov chain Monte Carlo simulation further reveals that domestic chickens diverged from red junglefowl 58,000±16,000 years ago, well before the archeological dating of domestication, and that their common ancestor in turn diverged from green junglefowl 3.6 million years ago. Several shared ...
Chickens are bred all over the world and have significant economic value as one of the major agricultural animals. The growth rate of commercial broiler chickens is several times higher than its Red Jungle fowl (RJF) ancestor. To further improve the meat production of commercial chickens, it is quite important to decipher the genetic mechanism of chicken growth traits. In this study, we found that broiler chickens exhibited lower levels of E3 ubiquitin ligase muscle atrophy F-box (MAFbx or Atrogin-1) relative to its RJF ancestor. As a ubiquitin ligase, Atrogin-1 plays a crucial role in muscle development in which its up-regulation often indicates the activation of muscle atrophic pathways. Here, we showed that the Atrogin-1 expression variance partly affects chicken muscle growth rates among different breeds. Furthermore, we demonstrated that the reduced expression of Atrogin-1 in broiler chickens was ascribed to a single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP), which inhibited the binding of ...
VENTURA, Adriana et al. Histological Description of Morphogenesis of the Gastroesophageal Mucosa of Gallus gallus domesticus (Linnaeus, 1758). Int. J. Morphol. [online]. 2013, vol.31, n.4, pp.1331-1339. ISSN 0717-9502. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-95022013000400030.. The ontogenesis of the gastroesophageal mucosa involves morphological alterations related to its structure and the function of each segment. The present study describes the histogenesis of the mucus-secreting epithelium and glands of the esophagus, gizzard, and proventriculus of the chicken (Gallus gallus), and identifies alterations in the secretion pattern of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs). We analyzed 38 chicken embryos, processed the material collected following the histological routine, and then stained it with hematoxylin-eosin for the analysis of tissue structure and with Gomoris trichrome for the identification of conjunctive tissue and collagen fibers. We used the PAS histochemical technique for the analysis of neutral ...

Bicephalia is one of the scarcest malformations reported in birds and needs to be fully investigated in chick embryos. Among 1500 fertilised eggs used to examine the primordial germ cells in 2-day and 5.5-day chick embryos Gallus gallus domesticus, bicephalia was found and the condition of the heads, the heart and other parts of the body was fully described. Each twin had its own head; hearts were not completely separated from each other and the rest of the bodies were externally unique. This investigation urges others including poultry farms to share their data on a bigger scale. It may also encourage the monitoring of abnormalities randomly seen during early chick embryogenesis and consideration of environmental factors when poultry farms are faced with high percentages of unsuccessful hatching. The report can shed some light on developmental processes and may also help to clarify why bicephalia is not more common. ...
Highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) subtype H5N1 remains an enzootic disease of village chickens in Indonesia, posing ongoing risk at the animal-human interface. Previous modelling showed that the fast natural turnover of chicken populations might undermine herd immunity after vaccination, although actual details of how this effect applies to Indonesias village chicken population have not been determined. We explored the turnover effect in Indonesias scavenging and mixed populations of village chickens using an extended Leslie matrix model parameterized with data collected from village chicken flocks in Java region, Indonesia. Population dynamics were simulated for 208 weeks; the turnover effect was simulated for 16 weeks after vaccination in two best case scenarios, where the whole population (scenario 1), or birds aged over 14 days (scenario 2), were vaccinated. We found that the scavenging and mixed populations have different productive traits. When steady-state dynamics are reached, ...
Juvenile chickens of less than 28 days of age at slaughter in the United Kingdom are marketed as poussin. Mature chicken is sold as small, medium or large. Whole mature chickens are marketed in the United States as fryers, broilers, and roasters. Fryers are the smallest size (2.5-4 lbs dressed for sale), and the most common, as chicken reach this size quickly (about 7 weeks). Most dismembered packaged chicken would be sold whole as fryers. Broilers are larger than fryers. They are typically sold whole. Roasters, or roasting hens, are the largest chickens commonly sold (3-5 months and 6-8 lbs) and are typically more expensive. Even larger and older chickens are called stewing chickens but these are no longer usually found commercially. The names reflect the most appropriate cooking method for the surface area to volume ratio. As the size increases, the volume (which determines how much heat must enter the bird for it to be cooked) increases faster than the surface area (which determines how fast ...

A 1-day old chick has the potential to become a broiler chicken, a layer or breeder. Given this versatility, the quality of day old chicks (DOCs) matters immensely to poultry businesses. This article addresses key development stages, focusing on most frequent disturbances in the field and relevant solutions.
The previous literature had suggested that all oil droplets act as light-collecting lenses to increase the delivery of on-axis propagating light into the outer segment, by up to six times in some cases [5-8]. Our modelling suggests that in chickens, only the transparent oil droplet in the violet cone fits with this conclusion, increasing the transmission of light for wavelengths to which the violet cone is sensitive, by a factor of 1.5-2 (figure 4a). In contrast, the pigmented oil droplets reduce light delivery to the outer segment by as much as 20-30% at wavelengths to which the cone is sensitive (figure 4a).. Clearly, there appears a difference here between our results and the literature. However, the difference is due to two main reasons: (i) the reflection of light from the oil droplet-inner segment interface, caused by the abrupt transition in the refractive index that occurs at the boundary of the carotenoid-pigmented droplets (figure 4b), is greater in the chickens owing to the higher ...
The trend in the meat chicken industry is to produce more chicken meat from less feed in less time. The most common chicken breed used in commercial enterprises today, the Cornish Cross, can put on weight twice as fast as domestic chickens could a century ago.. Consumers will recognize this bird by its huge breast and white feathering. Most Cornish Cross industry chickens reach market weight sometime between four and eight weeks, depending on the desired weight for slaughter.. Unfortunately, fast-growing breeds of chicken are associated with a host of issues; both producers and consumers are becoming more concerned.. First, the quickly accumulated weight can overwhelm the young chickens bone structure, causing deformity, pain, and difficulty walking. The Cornish Cross large breasts also make them heavy in the front, complicating their mobility even more.. Other than the physical issues faced by fast-growing breeds, there is also a welfare component to their short lives. To accommodate their ...
Summary Three-month-old and 8-month-old chickens were inoculated subcutaneously with a single, small dose of WE virus calculated to represent that which could be inoculated by a naturally infected mosquito. Each chicken was bled for determination of the viremia and antibody pattern. A similar study was made with SLE virus. The viremia period for WE virus in the majority of adult chickens lasted only 2 days. SLE virus was present in the blood of about half of adult chickens on the 2nd and 3rd days after inoculation and persisted in a few individual birds for longer periods of time. Most of the chickens inoculated with WE virus had HI titers of 1:320 or greater by the 2nd week after inoculation. Although there was some decrease in HI-antibody titers to WE, this antibody persisted at detectable levels for at least 1 year. In these chickens strong neutralization indices developed by the 2nd week, and this type of antibody persisted for at least the 9-week observation period. In adult chickens inoculated

Spread the pesto on the chicken breasts. Cover each breast with a slice of ham and grated gruyère cheese. Roll the breasts and close them with toothpicks.In an open skillet, heat the butter at medium-high and brown the chicken breasts on all sides. Put the breasts on a cooking plate and cook in the oven at 375°F (190°C) about 15 minutes or until the chicken has lost its pinkish tint inside.Meanwhile, in the skillet, add flour to the cooking fat from the chicken and cook 2 to 3 minutes. Add the chicken broth and bring to a boil while stirring with a wire whisk until the sauce thickens. Add the tomatoes, olives, salt and pepper and let cook 2 minutes. Pour the sauce on the chicken breast rolls as they are being served. ...
Chickens have a core body temperature between 104 and 107 degrees," she explained. "Even if theyre completely bald, they dont need sweaters, and sweaters are actually counterproductive to them being able to regulate their own body temperature.". Mormino blames the way people anthropomorphize their pets. Fido wears a winter coat, why not a sweater for Foghorn Leghorn?. "Theyre making ladders and swings for chickens - ridiculous," she added.. Backyard chicken farmers are also making their animals fat, Mormino said. Chickens lay eggs every day, so their dietary needs are very specific. Theres a reason commercial poultry farmers hire PhDs to figure all this out. So use quality commercial chicken feed, Mormino suggests, not some recipe from the Internet.. "Chicken keepers are spending exorbitant amounts of money on designer mealworms and organic kale," she said. "Theyre over treating their chickens like crazy.". Chickens need about 2/3 cup of chicken feed per day to be maximally productive, ...
He cautioned residents to raise chickens or livestock in a healthy and always clean the cage, clean the dirt, wipe out the remnants of chicken, such as feathers and others. Because the media spread of bird flu among chickens caged together or loose, ie, through dirt and other equipment which is likely contaminated with the H5N1 virus. While spraying and rapid test performed in the Middle Banjar, and Banjar Village Tohpati Penarukan, Bungbungan Village, District residents Banjarangkan following reports of chicken deaths which occurred grubug in large quantities, since a week lately. Residents Tohpati whose chickens died suddenly since the past week in antarnya Ni Nyoman Karpa and I Wayan Cottage. Both citizens of the chickens died since the beginning of October. "Many dead nadak," said Ni Nyoman Karpa. According to Karpa, of the 30 local chickens she raised, 26 tails off in a row. The chickens are reared wild alias is not grounded. His chickens to death row, and no known cause. ...
Intensification of the broiler chicken industry started in the late 1950s, when the use of dual purpose chickens for egg and meat production ceased and new poultry strains were produced specifically for meat production. For example, in 1950/51, only 3 million broilers were raised commercially, and now over 400 million are raised and killed in Australia each year. In addition to the breeding program to grow chickens faster (and so cheaper), demand was also growing, and for example Kentucky Fried Chicken opened its first Australian store in 1968, and increased chicken consumption radically. In the early 1970s in just 12 months as 75 Kentucky Fried Chicken stores opened, Australian production of chicken increased 38%. The result of the narrowly focused breeding programs has been a bird which grows twice or three times as fast as a normal chicken and converts its food into meat in a much more efficient way. Most are raised under intensive systems and reach slaughter weight at 5-7 weeks of age. ...
Background:The publication of the first draft chicken sequence assembly became available in 2004 and was updated in 2006. However, this does not constitute a definitive and complete sequence of the chicken genome, since the microchromosomes are notably under-represented. In an effort to develop maps for the microchromosomes absent from the chicken genome assembly, we developed radiation hybrid (RH) and genetic maps with markers isolated from sequence currently assigned to chromosome Unknown (chrUn). The chrUn is composed of sequence contigs not assigned to named chromosomes. To identify and map sequence belonging to the microchromosomes we used a comparative mapping strategy, and we focused on the small linkage group E26C13. Results:In total, 139 markers were analysed with the chickRH6 panel, of which 120 were effectively assigned to the E26C13 linkage group, the remainder mapping elsewhere in the genome. The final RH map is composed of 22 framework markers extending over a 245.6 cR distance. ...
PETA is especially concerned about poultry packing plants, which have received less scrutiny than beef and pork processors though more than 90% of animals killed for food in this country are chickens. The standard method for slaughtering chickens -- at a rate of 11,000 birds an hour -- involves shackling them upside down from a conveyor belt that runs along the ceiling. Their heads are dunked in a shallow stun bath to anesthetize them. A revolving blade then slices their necks. Chicken processors defend their methods as humane, arguing that its a lot less traumatic than the old-fashioned farm-boy method of wringing the birds neck. But activists contend that many chickens are not properly stunned or sliced, and end up boiling to death in the scalding tank meant to loosen their feathers. Ive stood there on the kill floor and seen how they look at you. They try everything in their power to get away. They may not be able to read and write, but they know whats going on, said Virgil Butler, a ...

Minga et al 1989; Bell 1992; El Zubeir 1990; Sonaiya 1990; Musharaf 1990; Yongolo 1996). The one chicken ecotype from Tabora that had severe nervous symptoms, survived the challenge, which is in agreement with the literature that birds showing nervous signs have a tendency to recover (Cole and Hutt 1961; Bell 1992; Yongolo 1996).. The current investigation has shown that chickens of the Kuchi ecotype are resistant to Fowl typhoid, as all five chickens from this group survived the challenge without any visible clinical signs of the disease. The other two chickens (one each from Morogoro-medium and Ching wekwe ecotypes) that also survived the challenge indicate that resistance to Fowl typhoid may be a trait among the free ranging local chicken ecotypes in Tanzania. These results are in agreement with work by Bumstead and Barrow (1993), who reported genetic resistance to Fowl typhoid in lines of White Leghorn chickens. It is likely that the differences observed in this experiment on resistance to ...
You may know it or not, boiled chicken is one of the tastiest yet versatile type of food that you can ever eat. When we say versatile, it means that boiled chicken can be eaten in many ways, in soup or along with green salads or even with mouthwatering sauces. However be careful while eating boiled chicken as you can easily risk adding o a few extra pounds when you eat too much of chicken and not take enough precautions for measuring your calorie intake.. Still if we compare between other chicken recipes, where chicken is fried or cooked with spices, boiled chicken comes with many benefits since it has much lesser calories than spicy and fried chicken recipes, but nevertheless boiled chicken can effectively curb your appetite.. ...

Besides Pork and Seafood Noodles, we also had some exotic food on da same day at Sun Sea Restaurant, Oug. Well, I would say that its rather common to eat Pigs Intestines but when it comes to Chicken Intestines, what do you think? Honestly speaking, I find it rather "alien" to me! Tell me about it, with so many Chicken Rice stalls in town, how many of them actually sell Chicken Intestines? Trust me, its really rare and if you discover one, please do let me know! :D Apparently, we spotted this Chicken Rice stall very long time ago and I could remember how excited my other half was at that time knowing that they sell Chicken Intestines. However, I saw it differently when I was naive, just too exotic for me and I "chicken-out" :p ...
Many Americans today probably think that chicken is a "food product," one of those compositions infused with partially hydrogenated soybean oil and other embalming fluids, manufactured on an assembly line in standard bite-sized pieces. Finicky fast-food eaters would be repelled by a drumstick or thigh with actual bones and veins, and would be shocked to learn that the juicy golden filet on a bun pictured in television ads starts out as part of a living creature with wings, feathers, a gizzard and a beating heart.. Anyone who grew up on pan-fried chicken served at shrines such as the Green Parrot in Kansas City knows better. We chicken lovers scoff at chicken "nuggets" and "fingers." To us, the mass-produced creatures forcefed in factories and marketed in groceries as "chickens" are not real chickens at all.. Corby Kummer discussed the shameful degradation of chicken in a recent Atlantic Monthly article. Kummer lamented the disappearance of the "grainy and muscular yet succulent meat of my ...

I have since expressly confirmed with the USDA that this definition of "domestic" would indeed allow Chinese-processed chicken into the school lunch program. Heres how: if, for example, a manufacturer of frozen chicken egg rolls fully assembles the egg rolls in this country, but sources the cooked chicken in the egg rolls from a Chinese processor, the egg rolls are considered "domestic" so long as the Chinese-processed chicken doesnt comprise more than 49% of the total product. School districts could buy these egg rolls without violating the "Buy American" rule and the egg rolls would not have to bear any country-of-origin labeling to disclose the location of the poultry processing. And this scenario could easily apply to any chicken-based entree supplied to schools, such as chicken soup, frozen chicken burritos, chicken chili, chicken-stuffed ravioli, and more.. I also learned that theres a second exception to the "Buy American" rule. In the unlikely event that the economics of chicken ...
Genetic selection for improved meat yields, digestive efficiency and growth rates have transformed the biology of broiler chickens. Modern birds undergo a 50-fold multiplication in body mass in just six weeks, from hatching to slaughter weight. However, this selection for rapid growth and improvements in broiler productivity is also widely thought to be associated with increased welfare problems as many birds suffer from leg, circulatory and respiratory diseases. To understand growth-related changes in musculoskeletal and organ morphology and respiratory skeletal development over the standard six-week rearing period, we present data from post-hatch cadaveric commercial broiler chickens aged 0, 2, 4 and 6 weeks. The heart, lungs and intestines decreased in size for hatch to slaughter weight when considered as a proportion of body mass. Proportional liver size increased in the two weeks after hatch but decreased between 2 and 6 weeks. Breast muscle mass on the other hand displayed strong positive
The naturally sized, three-part, cross-sectional chicken models depict the bird in high detail.Zoology models are made from deconstructed skeletal parts or articulately cast reproductions of whole organisms. With precise anatomical details and life-sized proportions, these replicas are great additions to classrooms learning animals both on the structural and organic levels. Functions such as muscle movement, venous connections, and respiratory systems are lain bare on the table for students to pick apart and learn from. The zoology models provide the visual reinforcement of material covered.
Over the last 60 yr, the selection of economically important traits has been the main focus of breeding programs and significant genetic improvements have been achieved thus far (Dong et al. 2015). Genetic selection for an enhanced growth rate in meat-type chickens (Gallus gallus domesticus) is usually accompanied by excessive adiposity that has a negative impact on both feed efficiency and carcass quality (Resnyk et al. 2015). Genetic improvement of abdominal fat by standard selection has been minimal for two reasons: (1) the intensity of selection has declined because of the difficulty and cost to measure these phenotypes, and (2) genetic evaluations have been less accurate because they are based on information from relatives only (Demeure et al. 2013). Exploration of the molecular regulatory mechanisms of fat deposition in broilers is beneficial for optimal breeding.. Many studies have been conducted to analyze the mechanisms of adipogenesis in the chicken at the genome-wide mRNA expression ...

Genetics driven interventions (GDI) are imperative for ex situ conservation to exhort long-term sustenance of small and isolated populations in captivity as they are more prone to an increased extinction risk due to inbreeding and genetic drift. We investigated constitutive genetic attributes of four captive Red Junglefowl (RJF) populations in India, to facilitate the prioritization of the birds to formulate an effective breeding action plan. All the four RJF populations were found to be evident of significant inbreeding but none of them had exhibited any signature of bottleneck footprints in the recent past. Bayesian cluster analysis revealed three distinct groups among the four captive RJF populations. Interestingly, birds of Kufri population were assigned together with Gopalpur as well as with Morni populations, indicating their shared genetic ancestry. Among the four populations, Morni population displayed the richest genetic attributes and was therefore presumed as a key source of genetic ...

Volatile compounds from the integument of white leghorn chickens (Gallus gallus domesticus L.): candidate attractants of ornithophilic mosquito species. Journal of Separation Science. 31:1092-1099. Interpretive Summary: Recent research into odors from chickens by scientists at the USDA-ARS, Center for Medical, Agricultural, and Veterinary Entomology in Gainesville, FL, has led to the identification of chemicals that may be used by mosquitoes to find these birds. The researchers used chemical instrumentation to identify the chemicals in extracts of chickens. Although some mosquitoes do prefer to bite humans, some prefer to feed from birds and bite humans on occasion. The mosquitoes involved in this feeding are known to transmit the West Nile virus to people. It is thought that the reason mosquitoes can tell the difference between a bird and a human is by sensing the odors that each produce. Discovery ...

Yeah. The thing you felt reading the title of this post? Thats exactly what my Tuesday morning was. Complete with squinch-face and all.. Lets talk about chicken… shit.. Kind of literally.. When I wrote this post on Sunday- particularly the part about what emergency supplies to have on hand- it occurred to me that in a year Id never had a real "chicken emergency." And then Tuesday morning happened. The Nugs ran out of the coop during morning chores, as usual, but the first thing I noted was what can only be described as a "bloody mass" on the rear end of one of my Nuggets.. Turns out that there are some things that are should usually be inside a chicken, that occasionally end up outside a chicken. Its called a prolapsed vent (the vent is where the egg comes out, the prolapsed part is… well, take a guess.). I spent two seconds reminding myself that proper farm-girls dont faint and then jumped in to action. There were some panicked minutes with a chicken bleeding-from-the-rear in my newly ...

One person has died and 16 others have become ill from a salmonella outbreak linked to kosher chicken, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Wednesday.. Eight people have been hospitalized, including the person who died.. Illnesses were reported in Maryland, New York, Pennsylvania and Virginia. The death was reported in New York.. According to the CDC, the agency began an outbreak investigation in June after several cases were reported in New York among people who said they had consumed kosher chicken.. "In interviews, ill people reported eating kosher chicken, and when asked about the specific brand eaten, several people reported Empire Kosher brand. The outbreak strain was also identified in samples of raw chicken collected from two facilities, including one facility that processes Empire Kosher brand chicken," the CDC said in its announcement.. However, the agency is not telling consumers to avoid eating kosher chicken or Empire brand chicken. Rather, they should follow safe ...
Directions. 1Preheat the grill for high, direct grilling. 2Bring a pot of water to boil and cook the orzo according to the directions on the package. 3Season the chicken with some salt and pepper. I like to keep the chicken simple for this one because there is so much other prep work to be done. 4Grill the chicken breasts until they reach 160 degrees on an instant-read thermometer. If you need refresher instructions on grilling chicken breasts, check out this article. 5Throw the whole red pepper on the grill at the same time. We want to roast that bad boy, so first step is charring (I mean black) all of the skin so we can peel it off easily later on. 6While the chicken breasts are cooking, brush the zucchini strips with a little olive oil and then dust them with some salt and pepper. 7Grill the zucchini next to the chicken.

Hi Mike.Your lucky that your McDs sell those. The last time I was at a real restaurant a couple weeks ago I got the cajun grilled chicken, which cost $8! But it was so good. Anyway,the waitress said that it is just grilled chicken with cajun seasoning on it that you can buy in any store. I was so happy. I went to the supermarket to buy cajun spice powder with the intent to bring it to work and make my own grilled chicken on the Broiler. I like the Whopper, but in my opinion the BK Broiler is the best sandwich we sell. You should try it with ranch sauce on it, its like heaven! Anyway, I didnt want to get cajun on the Broiler chain, so I just put it on one side of the chicken as I cooked it. It was good, but it didnt taste the same as the cajun chickens at other restaurants. And although it is really small, I think McDs grilled chicken is pretty darn good.. : Have you seen the attacks on my other posts by Paranoid Ghost and David Peal?

The overall mean egg weight in the current experiment was 42.5g. This was higher compared to 36.8g from Nigerian local domestic fowls (Adedokun and Sonaiya 2001), 37g from Bangladesh desi domestic fowls (Barua and Yoshimura 1997), 38.2g from Tanzanian local domestic fowls (Katule 1990) and 34.4g from Malian local domestic fowls (Wilson et al 1987). There are other studies that have reported higher mean egg weights compared to the current experiment. Mwalusanya (1998) reported overall mean egg weight of 43.6g from local domestic fowls from three ecological zones of Tanzania. In a different study, Zaza (1992) reported mean egg weight of 48g in Dandrawi domestic fowl (a local Egyptian domestic fowl).. It was observed that except for the Mbeya ecotype, mean egg weights for the other local domestic fowl ecotypes were lower compared to those reported in an earlier study for Kuchi and Singamagazi; two relatively large local ecotypes from Tanzania (Msoffe et al 2001). Katule (1990) had earlier shown ...
An experiment was conducted to evaluate the effects of low concentrations of organic and inorganic dietary trace minerals on broiler performance and trace mineral digestibility along the small intestine of 35-day-old broiler chickens reared under floor-pen conditions. Eight hundred male, day-old Cobb broiler chickens were randomly allocated to 4 dietary treatments (25 birds per pen with 8 replicates per treatment). Broilers fed diets supplemented with 4, 20, 40 and 30 mg/kg, respectively, of Cu, Fe, Mn and Zn from organic chelates and inorganic salts achieved the same body weight gain as those supplemented at the NRC levels (8 mg Cu, 40 mg Fe, 60 mg Mn and 40 mg Zn/kg, respectively) from inorganic salts. However, birds fed a control diet without any supplementation at dietary levels of 7.4-8.8, 60.1-69.2, 14.6-15.4 and 19.1-20.6 mg/kg of Cu, Fe, Mn and Zn, respectively, had decreased feed intake and growth rate. There was no significant difference in the digestibility of Cu in all regions of the ...

Since we are trying to cut down on our grocery bill that was getting out of control we could not be letting any of our leftovers go to waste. I am not a big fan of just eating up the same thing over again so I have been finding ways to bring new life to our leftovers.. We raise chickens each year at my parents farm and since our chickens get much larger then most chicken you are able to buy at the super market we are able to get three full meals from one chicken. The first night I will cook a whole chicken in the crock pot with carrots and potatoes. Then night to we usually have chicken alfredo or another chicken pasta dish. Night three will either be BBQ chicken sandwiches or chicken noodle soup. There are many other ways to prepare leftover chicken into a new and delicious meal, like cold chicken salads or sandwich spreads, chicken burritos, chicken and rice casserole, chicken and noodles or chicken and veggie stir fry.

1. Chop your chicken into small chunks or strips. Place the chopped chicken in a large bowl and add the chicken fry mix, oregano, cumin and chilli (if you can handle a bit of spice), with a pinch each of salt and pepper. Mix everything together with a wooden spoon until the chicken is coated.. 2. Cut the red pepper in half, remove the white membrane and seeds and cut it into small pieces or slices. Trim the tops and bottoms off the spring onions and cut them into small slices.. 3. Place a big frying pan on the stove over a low heat and add the oil. If the heat is too high, the oil may splutter and can seriously burn, so just take your time. Add the chicken to the pan and fry for a few minutes, stirring the chicken with a wooden spoon so it cooks evenly. After a few minutes, add the diced or sliced pepper and then a few minutes later the spring onions. Keep frying until the chicken is cooked through and browned slightly (cut a piece open; it should be white all the way through), then turn off the ...

We present here a draft genome sequence of the red jungle fowl, Gallus gallus. Because the chicken is a modern descendant of the dinosaurs and the first non-mammalian amniote to have its genome sequenced, the draft sequence of its genome--composed of approximately one billion base pairs of sequence and an estimated 20,000-23,000 genes--provides a new perspective on vertebrate genome evolution, while also improving the annotation of mammalian genomes. For example, the evolutionary distance between chicken and human provides high specificity in detecting functional elements, both non-coding and coding. Notably, many conserved non-coding sequences are far from genes and cannot be assigned to defined functional classes. In coding regions the evolutionary dynamics of protein domains and orthologous groups illustrate processes that distinguish the lineages leading to birds and mammals. The distinctive properties of avian microchromosomes, together with the inferred patterns of conserved synteny, ...

Chickens have the largest population of any species of bird. In 2003 it was estimated that there were 23 billion chickens in the World. The entire population of the World is estimated to be just over 7 billion. Thats over 3 chickens for every person alive on the Planet earth. Chickens are funny animals. Not only can they run around when you chop their heads off but they can also be hypnotized.
The extraintestinal pathogen, avian pathogenic E. coli (APEC), known to cause systemic infections in chickens, is responsible for large economic losses in the poultry industry worldwide. In order to identify genes involved in the early essential stages of pathogenesis, namely adhesion and colonization, Signature-tagged mutagenesis (STM) was applied to a previously established lung colonization model of infection by generating and screening a total of 1,800 mutants of an APEC strain IMT5155 (O2:K1:H5; Sequence type complex 95). The study led to the identification of new genes of interest, including two adhesins, one of which coded for a novel APEC fimbrial adhesin (Yqi) not described for its role in APEC pathogenesis to date. Its gene product has been temporarily designated ExPEC Adhesin I (EA/I) until the adhesin-specific receptor is identified. Deletion of the ExPEC adhesin I gene resulted in reduced colonization ability by APEC strain IMT5155 both in vitro and in vivo. Furthermore, complementation of

The MULCH Garden has backyard chickens! The purpose of keeping chickens on campus is to provide an ongoing hands-on educational project for students, faculty, staff, and community members. Through this project, participants and visitors will learn about how to care for chickens as part of a more sustainable urban landscape and foodshed.. The planning process for this project began in the Fall of 2010 and continued throughout the following winter and spring. In March of 2011, students began working with a group of Amish furniture makers from Harmony, Minnesota to design the coop. The coop was constructed in early April behind the Spanish house, next to the MULCH garden. The chickens were purchased as soon as the coop was finished, on April 10th. There are now four chickens happily inhabiting their new home - a Arucana, a Speckled Sussex, a Black Sex-Link, and a Black Australorpe. The chickens will be cared for by members of MULCH, and eggs will be distributed among the caretakers. If you would ...
Oocyan or blue/green eggshell colour is an autosomal dominant trait found in native chickens (Mapuche fowl) of Chile and in some of their descendants in European and North American modern breeds. We report here the identification of an endogenous avian retroviral (EAV-HP) insertion in oocyan Mapuche fowl and European breeds. Sequencing data reveals 100% retroviral identity between the Mapuche and European insertions. Quantitative real-time PCR analysis of European oocyan chicken indicates over-expression of the SLCO1B3 gene (P|0.05) in the shell gland and oviduct. Predicted transcription factor binding sites in the long terminal repeats (LTR) indicate AhR/Ar, a modulator of oestrogen, as a possible promoter/enhancer leading to reproductive tissue-specific over-expression of the SLCO1B3 gene. Analysis of all jungle fowl species Gallus sp. supports the retroviral insertion to be a post-domestication event, while identical LTR sequences within domestic chickens are in agreement with a recent de novo

Chickens were domesticated in Asia about 8000 years ago. Despite many years of selection for production traits, the behavior of chickens is surprisingly similar to that of their wild ancestors, the red junglefowl.[1,2] Like jungle-fowl, chickens are highly social animals. They form dominance hierarchies (peck orders) and communicate using visual signals (appearance, posture) and vocalizations. In a naturalistic environment, they are exploratory and active, and they spend a large proportion of their day foraging for food. Significant time is also spent caring for the plumage, primarily by preening, during which oil from a gland at the base of the tail is worked through the feathers, and by dustbathing, during which loose material like dirt is worked through the feathers to absorb excess oils. The usual social group consists of a dominant rooster and a harem of 4 12 hens and their chicks. This group affiliates closely and feeds and roosts together. When the hens are ready to lay eggs, they ...

We have studied the expression of the chicken hepatic glycoprotein receptor (chicken hepatic lectin [CHL]) in Madin-Darby canine kidney (MDCK) cells, by transfection of its cDNA under the control of a retroviral promotor. Transfected cell lines stably express 87,000 surface receptors/cell with a kd = 13 nM. In confluent monolayers, approximately 40% of CHL is localized at the plasma membrane. 98% of the surface CHL is expressed at the basolateral surface where it performs polarized endocytosis and degradation of glycoproteins carrying terminal N-acetylglucosamine at a rate of 50,000 ligand molecules/h. Studies of the half-life of metabolically labeled receptor and of the stability of biotinylated cell surface receptor after internalization indicate that transfected CHL performs several rounds of uptake and recycling before it gets degraded. The successful expression of a functional basolateral receptor in MDCK cells opens the way for the characterization of the mechanisms that control targeting ...

Thai sweet chili sauce, for serving Combine the garlic, cilantro, fish sauce, vegetable oil, hoisin sauce, coriander, kosher salt and pepper in a blender until smooth. Arrange the pieces of chicken in a large, shallow glass or ceramic dish. Pour the marinade over the chicken and turn to coat the pieces thoroughly. Cover and refrigerate for several hours, or overnight.. To roast the chicken: Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Cover baking dish with a lid or foil and roast chicken for about 25 minutes. If the sauce begins to char, sprinkle a few tablespoons water into the dish. Remove the lid or foil and bake for an additional 5 to 10 minutes, until the skin is crisp and the meat is cooked through.**.

In the study, Wigley and his colleagues experimentally infected birds from four commercial breeds of broiler chickens. They found that while levels of the bacteria in the intestines did not differ by breed, immune response and inflammation did, to the extent that one breed showed damage to the gut mucosa and developed diarrhea.. "Interestingly the breeds did not differ in the levels of bacteria we found in their intestines after infection, even when kept to normal slaughter age," says Wigley. "This suggests that chicken breed has little direct effect on the risk of Campylobacter entering the food chain but has a big effect on the health of the birds.". The most important finding, says Wigley, is that Campylobacter infection directly impacts broiler chicken health and welfare. The United States produces over 8 billion broiler chickens per year and the United Kingdom produces nearly a billion. As Campylobacter is common, or even endemic, in these industries then the scale of the impact on animal ...
Chicken contains much less cholesterol than red meat and eggs and is easily the safest option while choosing among non-vegetarian sources of protein. Too much of anything is bad; and the same goes for chicken where your cholesterol level is concerned. Eating a small serving of chicken without fat and cooked in a healthy way is not bad for your cholesterol. The effect of chicken meat on your bodys cholesterol levels is mostly dependent upon the amount of chicken you are eating on a daily basis and the methods you employ to cook chicken.

Hatchability of broiler eggs has not increased over the last twenty years. Increasing hatchability with in ovo technology may be possible through feeding metabolic modulators to the developing embryo. Exogenous fatty acids and antioxidants provided during incubation may enhance polyunsaturated fatty acid, lipid, and antioxidant status of the chicken embryo. This hypothesis was evaluated by conducting three experiments: first, in ovo feeding of polyunsaturated fatty acids (conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), alpha-linolenic acid (LNA), and second, injection of palmitate/carnitine (PC) or control. In experiment three, in ovo injection of 10 IU or 20 IU of vitamin E (VE) was performed. Hatchability of chicks receiving CLA and LNA was reduced compared saline injection and chick livers showed no difference in total lipid (p,0.05). Hatchability was reduced in PC and control groups compared to the non-injected treatment. Lipid content of liver and heart tissue was increased in the PC injected chicks ...

Chicken bones contain a particularly high proportion of bone marrow - which is rich in both blood-forming nutrients and vital essential fatty acids (both omega 3 and 6, but more of the latter). Chicken bones are a balanced and biologically appropriate source of the essential bone-forming minerals, calcium and phosphorus. This is vital to the construction and maintenance of the skeletal system of dogs and cats. And bones from young chickens are an excellent source of cartilage; cartilage contains both glucosamine and chondroitin, both of which play a role in developing and maintaining joint health ...

4. Place your left forearm across the chicken and use your left hand to spread out the left wing of the chicken.. 5. Use your right hand to bleed the chicken as described above.. The brachial vein (wing vein) is usually the most convenient site to obtain blood samples of broilers, broiler breeders, layers and turkeys. Heart puncture can also be used, but it is usually used as a method for obtaining blood from small chickens (one to several days old).. Chickens can also be sent live to the lab for blood collection. It is also very convenient to collect blood samples at processing plant.. Obtain at least 2 ml of blood from each bird. Do not fill more than half of the capacity of the tube. After the collection, lay the tube down so that it is horizontal or nearly so. Leave it until the blood clots. After the clot is firm, the vial may be returned to a vertical position. An occasional sample may require a long time to clot. A fresh blood sample should never be refrigerated immediately after ...

Chickens fed for 35 days with the HF diet displayed decreased food intake, in line with our previous results demonstrating that chickens adjusted their food intake according to the dietary metabolizable energy concentration (Yuan et al., 2008). The HF effect on food intake is likely to be driven mainly by energy needs, because several reports have shown that taste or palatability was relatively less important (Blundell et al., 1993, 1996; Berridge, 1996). The viewpoint that a HF diet induces an increase in body mass has been widely verified in human and animal studies (West and York, 1998; Murtaugh et al., 2007) and was also shown in the present study. The increase in body mass resulted from a higher proportion of adipose tissue rather than skeletal muscle (West and York, 1998; Murtaugh et al., 2007). We observed that the adipose mass in the abdomen and cervical subcutaneous tissues relative to body mass was higher in HF diet-fed chickens than in LF diet-fed chickens, in line with previous work ...

Many bird species possess yellow skin and legs whereas other species have white or black skin color. Yellow or white skin is due to the presence or absence of carotenoids. The genetic basis underlying this diversity is unknown. Domestic chickens with yellow skin are homozygous for a recessive allele, and white skinned chickens carry the dominant allele. As a result, chickens represent an ideal model for analyzing genetic mechanism responsible for skin color variation. In this study we demonstrate that yellow skin is caused by regulatory mutation(s) that inhibit expression of the beta-carotene dioxygenase 2 (BCDO2) enzyme in skin, but not in other tissues. Because BCDO2 cleaves colorful carotenoids into colorless apocarotenoids, a reduction in expression of this gene produces yellow skin. This study also provides the first conclusive evidence of a hybrid origin of the domestic chicken. It has been generally assumed that the red junglefowl is the sole ancestor of the domestic chicken. A ...
The chicken B cell line DT40 is a tool that is uniquely situated to study the function of genes due to its high rate of homologous recombination. As any tool is only as good as the resources behind it, the recent boon and continuing output of available genomic information has only widened the possibilities for the DT40 community. Besides the release of the chicken genome, the public databases are expanding rapidly with a wealth of experimentally produced data including various chicken cell specific ESTs, full-length cDNAs, non-coding RNAs and expressed SAGE tags. In addition, many laboratories have also taken it upon themselves to set up a web presence freely sharing and distributing information, program applications and software such as the DT40 website. Of course, the standard bearers in this are the institutes that have led the way in development of bioinformatics tools for sequence information, comparative genomics and proteomics such as The National Center for Biotechnology Information ...
