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)

Temperature sensitivity studies on selected strains on Mycoplasma gallisepticum. (2/18504)

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] 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. 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 ...
Antibiotic growth promoters that have been historically employed to control pathogens and increase the rate of animal development for human consumption are currently banned in many countries. Probiotics have been proposed as an alternative to control pathogenic bacteria. Traditional culture methods typically used to monitor probiotic effects on pathogens possess significant limitations such as a lack in sensitivity to detect fastidious and non-culturable bacteria, and are both time consuming and costly. Here, we tested next generation pyrosequencing technology as a streamline and economical method to monitor the effects of a probiotic on microbial communities in juvenile poultry (Gallus gallus domesticus) after exposure to several microbiological challenges and litter conditions. Seven days and repeated again at 39 days following hatching, chicks were challenged with either Salmonella enterica serovar Enteritidis, Campylobacter jejuni, or no bacteria in the presence of, or without a probiotic (i.e.,

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, ...

Chickens have become increasingly popular around urban and suburban areas as more people have discovered the benefits of having chickens. While their boisterous personalities make them entertaining pets, their ability to provide your family with fresh eggs truly make them an asset. In addition, chickens also benefit your yards and gardens through their droppings, which make for a rich and hardy fertilizer. Requiring chicken nesting boxes along with other coop accessories, chickens also need chicken feeders filled with nutritionally balanced chicken feed. As chickens have innate tendencies to dig and forage for worms, its important to provide them with an enclosed chicken run or pen to allow them to wander about freely. Allowing your chickens to safely and freely roam within a chicken run not only helps to promote their well-being, but it also helps to enhance their ability to lay eggs. Naturally weary of predators, chickens must also feel secure and safe enough to relax in order to lay an egg. ...

Study: Gene mutations transformed jungle fowl to chickens we eat, LOS ANGELES - Hundreds of genetic mutations accumulated over thousands of years have transformed the red jungle fowl of South Asia into the domesticated chickens that are a fixture on farms - and dining tables - worldwide, according to an analysis of poultry DNA published this week in the journal Nature.
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.

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, ...

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 ...
Escherichia coli is known as one of the most important foodborne pathogens in humans, and contaminated chicken meat is an important source of foodborne infection with this bacterium. The occurrence of extended-spectrum β-lactamase (ESBL)-producing E. coli (ESBL-Ec), in particular, in chicken meat is considered a global health problem. This study aimed to determine the magnitude of E. coli, with special emphasis on ESBL-Ec, along with their phenotypic antimicrobial resistance pattern in frozen chicken meat. The study also focused on the determination of ESBL-encoding genes in E. coli. A total of 113 frozen chicken meat samples were purchased from 40 outlets of nine branded supershops in five megacities in Bangladesh. Isolation and identification of E. coli were done based on cultural and biochemical properties, as well as PCR assay. The resistance pattern was determined by the disc diffusion method. ESBL-encoding genes were determined by multiplex PCR. The results showed that 76.1% of samples were

The red junglefowl (Gallus gallus) is closely related to pheasants, and today is spread throughout the world in various domestic forms. Their natural range is limited to appropriate jungle habitats in southeast Asia, stretching from India to Indonesia.. Chickens are believed to be the first domesticated animal used regularly by humans, with domestication dating back more than 5,000 years, and partial domestication noted as early as 9000 BC. Domestication began in China and India but quickly spread with colonists, conquerors, and pioneers. Genetic testing on fossilized bones has determined that red junglefowl were likely brought to South America by ancient Polynesian explorers, long before Europeans were exploring and colonizing the New World.. Despite their popularity today as livestock, the first chickens were not domesticated for the dinner table. Instead, chickens were initially domesticated for sport, and though it is now outlawed for cruelty in many areas, cockfighting remains the one of ...
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
Genetic variability was studied on five Iranian native chicken populations using Random Amplified Polymorphism DNA (RAPD) markers. The purpose of this study was for the analysis of variation within and between Iranian native chicken populations and for the reconstruction of a phylogenetic tree for these populations using the RAPD marker assay. The populations surveyed were from five provinces including Mazandaran (MZD), Isfahan (ISF), Yazd (YZD), Fars (FRS) and West Azerbaijan (WAZ). On the base of results of this study, the FRS and MZD populations had the highest genetic distance (0.182) and the FRS and ISF populations the lowest one (0.066). The YZD and MZD populations had the highest (0.208) and lowest (0.156) within-population genetic diversity. The phylogenetic tree was reconstructed on UPGMA method and showed two main separated groups. The ISF and FRS populations were first clustered into one group and, then, were clustered into a larger group with YZD and WAZ. Another consists MZD ...
Purpose: While White Leghorn chicken (Gallus gallus domesticus) have been used to study physiological optical properties of the eye and conditions such as myopia, there is a lack of in vivo studies that look at the potential of chicken as a model of ocular hypertension or glaucoma. When advanced imaging techniques are to be used in such models, chicken have an advantage over rodents, having bigger eyes with less optical aberrations. The induction of elevated IOP in chicken via anterior chamber injections of microbeads has thus been investigated.. Methods: Animals of both genders and varying ages (n=15:12-124 days old) were subject to one of 12 combinations of anterior chamber injections of microbeads: magnetic (4.5 µm) or non-magnetic (12 µm) in one or both eyes with saline as a control. Intraocular pressure (IOP) was monitored frequently before and after injections with Tonopen. In 4 out of the 17 animals A-scan ultrasound was used to measure ocular parameters including anterior chamber depth ...

By applying cDNA microarrays containing 13,007 expressed sequence tags, we examined the comprehensive gene expression profiling of the intermediate medial mesopallium in the chick cerebrum, which has been shown to play a key role in filial imprinting. We found 52 up-regulated genes and 6 down-regulated genes of at least 2.0-fold changes 3 h after the training of filial imprinting, compared to the gene expression of the dark-reared chick brain. The up-regulated genes are known to be involved in a ...
In this work we have determined molecular signatures of oviduct epithelial and progenitor cells. We have proposed a panel of selected marker genes, which correspond with the phenotype of oviduct cells of a laying hen (Gallus gallus domesticus) and quail (Coturnix japonica). We demonstrated differences in characteristics of those cells, in tissue and in vitro, with respect to different anatomical and functional parts of the oviduct (infundibulum (INF), distal magnum (DM, and proximal magnum (PM)). The following gene expression signatures were studied: (1) oviduct markers (estrogen receptor 1, ovalbumin, and SPINK7 - ovomucoid), (2) epithelial markers (keratin 5, keratin 14, and occludin) and (3) stem-like/progenitor markers (CD44 glycoprotein, LGR5, Musashi-1, and sex determining region Y-box 9, Nanog homebox, OCT4/cPOUV gene encoding transcription factor POU5F3). In chicken, the expression of oviduct markers increased toward the proximal oviduct. Epithelial markers keratin14 and occludin were high in
Random amplified polymorphism DNA (RAPD) technique was applied to detect genetic similarity between seven local chicken strains selected for eggs and meat production in Bangladesh. Conservation and improvement strategies ought to be based on proper genetic characterization in association with phenotypic characterization. White Leghorn, White Rock, Rhode Island Red, and Barred Plymouth Rock fall under recognized strain and Hilly, Deshi and Necked Neck fall under native bird group. Based on four oligonucleotide primers, the genetic similarity between the eggproducing strains (White Leghorn; White Rock; Rhode Island Red and Barred Plymouth Rock) was between 81.3 to 89.3 %. While the genetic similarity of three native chicken strains selected for meat production (Hilly, Deshi and Necked Neck) was 69.0 to 78.7 % similar based on the RAPD Marker. So, RAPD markers appeared to be effective in detecting similarity between chicken strains and they provide a potential tool for studying the inter-strain genetic

Genetic Diversity and Relationships of Korean Chicken Breeds Based on 30 Microsatellite Markers Korean Native Chicken;Microsatellite;Genetic Diversity;Genetic Relationship; The effective management of endangered animal genetic resources is one of the most important concerns of modern breeding. Evaluation of genetic diversity and relationship of local breeds is an important factor towards the identification of unique and valuable genetic resources. This study aimed to analyze the genetic diversity and population structure of six Korean native chicken breeds (n = 300), which were compared with three imported breeds in Korea (n = 150). For the analysis of genetic diversity, 30 microsatellite markers from FAO/ISAG recommended diversity panel or previously reported microsatellite markers were used. The number of alleles ranged from 2 to 15 per locus, with a mean of 8.13. The average observed heterozygosity within native breeds varied between 0.46 and 0.59. The overall heterozygote deficiency ($F_{IT}$) in
Cathelicidins are essential in the protection against invading pathogens through both their direct antimicrobial activity and their immunomodulatory functions. Although cathelicidins are known to modulate activation by several TLR ligands, little is known about their influence on DNA-induced macrophage activation. In this study, we explored the effects of cathelicidins on DNA-induced activation of chicken macrophages and elucidated the intracellular processes underlying these effects. Our results show that chicken cathelicidin (CATH)-2 strongly enhances DNA-induced activation of both chicken and mammalian macrophages because of enhanced endocytosis of DNA-CATH-2 complexes. After endocytosis, DNA is liberated from the complex because of proteolytic breakdown of CATH-2, after which TLR21 is activated. This leads to increased cytokine expression and NO production. Through the interaction with DNA, CATH-2 can play an important role in modulating the immune response at sites of infection. These ...
BETHESDA, Md., Wed., Dec. 8, 2004 - An international research consortium has found that chickens and humans share more than half of their genes, but that their DNA sequences diverge in ways that may explain some of the important differences between birds and mammals. The consortiums analysis is published in the Dec. 9 issue of the journal Nature.. The International Chicken Genome Sequencing Consortium analyzed the sequence of the Red Jungle Fowl (Gallus gallus), which is the progenitor of domestic chickens. The National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI), part of the National Institutes of Health, provided about $13 million in funding for the project, which involved researchers from China, Denmark, France, Germany, Japan, Poland, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and the United States.. The chicken is the first bird, as well as the first agricultural animal, to have its genome sequenced and analyzed. The first draft of the chicken genome, which was based on 6.6-fold ...
The aims of this study was to find out the histological differences of the mucosa and comparative analysis of Ig-containing plasma cells among the different segments of the gastrointestinal tract of broiler and native chickens of Bangladesh. The conventional histological study revealed that the lining epithelium of the proximal segments (esophagus, crop, and proventriculus) were thicker in the broiler. The esophageal glands were more in the broiler than the native chickens. The villi of the duodenum, jejunum and ileum were slender and longer in the broiler in comparison to the native chickens. The number of goblet cells in the duodenum, jejunum, and ileum was more in the native chickens than the broiler. The indirect immunohistochemistry revealed that very few immunoglobulin (Ig)-containing plasma cells were present in the epithelium and lamina propria of esophagus, crop, and proventriculus of the broiler and native chickens. The frequency of the population of these cells were abundantly located ...

Sequencing of the chicken genome began in March 2003 with funding from the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHRGI), one of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Researchers led by Richard Wilson of the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis assembled the genome of the red jungle fowl (Gallus gallus), an ancestor of domestic chickens. The analysis showed that chickens and humans share about 60 percent of their genes, as opposed to the approximately 88 percent shared by humans and rodents. The chicken is really in an evolutionary sweet spot, said Wilson. Its at just the right evolutionary distance from all the other genomes we already have to provide us with a great deal of fresh insight into the human genome ...

Q: Can I feed raw chicken or cooked chicken to my ferrets as part of their diet? Is chicken meat even healthy?. A: Chicken is the healthiest meat to feed ferrets, as it contains taurine, which is essential to their health. Chicken guts and organs of all kinds should be okay, but double check with your vet first.. But the ONLY (raw) chicken bones that they should eat are the neck bones. Beef, lamb, and poultry bones are good as well! For your ferrets health, steer clear of things with sugar in them and also avoid fruits and vegetables ...

BACKGROUND: Studies on transmission of Enterococcus faecalis among chickens during hatch have not been carried out so far. Information about vertical transmission and subsequent spreading and colonization of the cloacal mucosa through cloacal drinking during hatch are important to understand the epidemiology of E. faecalis infections. In the present investigation vertical transmission and subsequent spreading and colonization of the cloacal mucosa of chickens by E. faecalis through cloacal drinking were examined. METHODS: Two different batches of layer chickens originating from 45 weeks old Brown and White Lohmann parents, respectively from the same farm were sampled in the hatcher. Isolates were confirmed to be E. faecalis by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and further by multilocus sequence typing (MLST) to state their population structure and comparison made to sequence types previously obtained from chicken. RESULTS: A total of 480 chickens were swabbed from the cloacae just after hatch ...

The term refers to a kind of grain as well as to the broad range of recipes - a combined dish of broth, vegetables and red meat, chicken or fish - served with that grain. The stew here consists of chicken thighs, frozen artichoke hearts crisped up in the chicken fat, green olives, chicken broth and lemon wedges. Why lemon wedges instead of lemon juice? Because as they bake among the other ingredients, the wedges impart a more lemony flavor to the dish. Return the chicken to the pan, skin side up, add the olives, lemon wedges and chicken broth. While the chicken is baking, prepare the couscous following the instructions on the back of the package, adding the remaining tablespoon oil as instructed. Mound the couscous on each plate and top with some of the chicken, artichokes, lemon wedges and olives, some of the broth from the skillet and a generous sprinkling of the herbs.

The Associated Press has announced that the FDA at long last gave prove that the chickens that got the medication were really positive for inorganic arsenic on tests.. Despite the fact that this has been overlooked for quite a while, the FDA has at last chosen to report that the chicken meat we as a whole purchase from the stores in the U.S. contains arsenic, which is a to a great degree lethal compound which prompts to different medical problems, malignancy, and even demise.. However, the most irritating certainty is that the arsenic is quite placed in chicken.. In particular, in 2006, the IATPs report Playing Chicken: Avoiding Arsenic inside the meat you eat, demonstrated that even 70 percent of the chickens in the U.S are nourished with arsenic keeping in mind the end goal to help the weight pick up and to get the ordinary sound shading on account of pigs, chickens, and turkeys.. The FDA found that half of all chickens have assimilated this poison inside the liver.. The organization even ...

I also have quail and chickens, and it is the same setup as most replies here. I let my chickens run during the day, whereas my quail are penned 24/7. They are always kept separate for several reasons. The most important would be the disease factor, where chickens could bring a virus, etc. into your quail population. Secondly important would be the fact that the chickens are pretty carefree when it comes to being around other animals and humans, where the quail are very high strung, flighty, and not too inviting to outsiders. Having this combination together would put a great deal of stress on your quail, which would in turn hinder egg production, feeding, etc. I can tell you that my quail have finally gotten used to the chickens coming around their pen to clean up the loose waste feed underneath(one benefit). So, I would say raise them separately, and avoid housing both together as best as you can. Replacing a few chickens wouldnt be near as costly as your quail. Navigation. [0] Message ...

The investigations have as an aim to analyze the diversity of the microflora circulating in chickens sold in Chisinau poultry market and to identify the risk factors of contamination with pathogens. As research material were used the chicken flocks which were delivered for the sale from various poultry farms as well as from private and individual breeders from different districts of the country. Lavages of biological material for investigation were collected from the transport units which delivered chickens to the poultry market, from the cells where the chickens were held for transportation, from the floors, walls and equipment where chickens are sold. Insemination was performed on ordinary, special and differential nutrient media. After 48 hours of incubation in thermostat at + 37o C was established a trend of increasing number of colonies of the microorganisms and fungals on Petri dish where the inseminations were carried from the lavages sampling from the transport units as well from cells ...

AU - Chang, King Chan. AU - Kuo, Chia Lam. N1 - Copyright: Copyright 2017 Elsevier B.V., All rights reserved.. PY - 2007/3/1. Y1 - 2007/3/1. N2 - The genomic organization of the chicken CD8α gene was investigated to determine the basis of its polymorphism. Contiguous to the CB8α gene we identified multiple DNA blocks possessing sequences homologous to CB8α. Gene conversions and recombination over evolutionary time among CD8α and these CD8α homologous genes seem to account for the observed polymorphism. Furthermore, these CD8α-like DNAs encode a distinct multigene family of immunoreceptors that have a charged or polar residue in place of the interspecies-conserved CD8α transmembrane proline residue and a short cytoplasmic tail nonhomologous to CD8α. The identification of this novel multigene family ...

But bronze statues and parks cost money, and the way Corbin officials figure it, they wont have enough to complete their Col. Sanders project for a few years. In the meantime, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals has a solution to Corbins lack of a KFC-themed tourist attraction, it says: Nix the bronze. Just make the statue out of chicken feces. In a letter to Corbins Main Street Project manager Sharae Myers, PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman states her groups desire to apply for a permit to place a life-size rendition of Colonel Sanders made entirely of chicken feces in downtown Corbin. PETAs statue radiates the smell of the crowded, filthy sheds in which chickens are forced to live out their short lives before being killed for KFCs buckets..

Introduction. There is inconsistent information about the optimal dietary energy requirements for indigenous chickens. Tadelle & Ogle (2000) reported that energy requirement of indigenous chickens as determined from the chemical analysis of the crop contents is 11.99 MJ ME/kg. The NRC (1994), however, recommended that the required energy in growing indigenous chicken diets should be 12.14 MJ ME/kg. Furthermore, Payne (1990) recommended 11.46 MJ ME/kg DM feed for one to six weeks of growth and 10.86 MJ ME/kg feed during the 6 to 12 weeks of the growing period. Mbajiorgu (2010) reported that a diet containing a crude protein content level of 178 g per kg DM and energy level of 14 MJ ME per kg DM allowed for optimal utilization of absorbed protein and energy for growth of Venda chickens between one and six weeks old. Thus, because information on dietary energy requirements for indigenous chickens is limiting and not conclusive, the objective of this study was to determine dietary energy levels for ...
McDonalds hasnt revealed how much of each Chicken McNugget is chicken and which percentage of each nugget is other ingredients. Examples of ingredients in modern-day Chicken McNuggets include water, white boneless chicken, salt and wheat starch. A full ingredient list is available and easy to find at the official McDonalds USA website. There are a lot of ingredients that youll recognize, because McDonalds had made an effort to change its chicken nugget recipe, to reassure consumers. McNuggets have changed over the years, but not too much. The same great taste is there. These chicken nuggets are perennial faves and McDonalds has made changes to its recipe mostly to change with the times. However, the restaurant chain is always careful not to change their Chicken McNuggets too much. They know that customers want them to have the same taste, breading and mouth feel that they are used to. McDonalds changes it up with the dipping sauces sometimes, but also keeps the old standards on hand, ...
