Lack of cytochrome P450 2E1 (CYP2E1) induction in the rat liver by starvation without coprophagy. (1/18)

Starvation potentiates the hepatotoxicity of a variety of small molecules, including chlorinated hydrocarbons and nitrosamines, through the induction of CYP2E1. A change in CYP2E1 expression during starvation may also alter the pharmacokinetic profiles of xenobiotics. Northern blot and Western blot analyses revealed that hepatic CYP2E1 was not induced during starvation in rats placed in metabolic or wire-bottom cages in contrast to the induction of CYP2E1 in animals housed in solid-bottom cages. We studied the effect of coprophagy on the expression of hepatic CYP2E1 during starvation. The extent of coprophagy was 24% in fed rats. Fecal matter of starving rats was reduced to 14% of control and starving rats re-ingested ~1.6 g of feces per day. The effect of fecal matter on CYP2E1 expression (i.e., 1.6 g/kg/day for 3 days) was assessed in fed or starving rats. Starving rats gavaged with fecal matter for 3 days resulted in a 3.5-fold increase in the level of CYP2E1 mRNA, while fed rats gavaged with feces failed to show an increase in the mRNA. The increase in the CYP2E1 mRNA level accompanied the induction of CYP2E1. Starving rats gavaged with methanol extract of feces (500 mg/kg/day for 3 days) showed a 3.3-fold increase in CYP2E1 mRNA level in the liver. These results provide evidence that CYP2E1 is not induced by starvation without coprophagy, raising the contention that the mechanistic basis for CYP2E1 induction by starvation should be reevaluated.  (+info)

Role of coprophagy in masking dietary deficiencies of cystine in the rat. (2/18)

When a diet containing raw soybean was fed to rats, there was an increase in the synthesis of pancreatic protein, presumably exocrine protein, as evidenced by an increased uptake of [35S]cystine. There was also an increased transsulfuration of methionine sulfur as indicated by labeled sulfur transformation from methionine to cystine. This same pattern of events was produced in rats receiving a casein-containing diet when 50 mg of crystalline trypsin inhibitor was administered by gavage. However, if coprophagy was prevented, the increased uptake of [35S]cystine and [35S]methionine transsulfuration under both dietary conditions was blocked. It was found that prevention of coprophagy was without effect upon these two processes if supplementary dietary cystine was provided or if a dietary protein source with adequate cystine, i.e., heat-treated soybean, was provided. It was concluded that by practicing coprophagy, sufficient fecal cystine was being returned to the upper intestinal tract to permit some synthesis of pancreatic exocrine protein and with this stimulation of synthesis, transulfuration could proceed. This assumes that the biosynthesis of cystine is dependent upon the availability of sufficient cystine to permit active protein synthesis. In another situation where cystine requirement is high, namely, the rapidly growing rat, a limited amount of cystine was fed by providing a 12% casein diet. Either supplementary cystine or methionine was provided and it was found that both amino acids gave optimal growth in conventional rats, but when coprophagy was prevented, optimal growth was achieved only with the cystine-supplemented diet.  (+info)

Effect of type of fiber on the rate of passage and on the contribution of soft feces to nutrient intake of finishing rabbits. (3/18)

One hundred thirty New Zealand White x California rabbits were used to study the influence of the source of dietary fiber on several digestive criteria. Five diets were formulated to provide 10% crude fiber (CF) on a DM basis. Sixty percent of this dietary fiber was supplied by alfalfa hay, citrus pulp, beet pulp, grape marc, or rice hulls in the diets. Weights of cecal contents, cecal ammonia concentration, and molar proportion of acetic acid in diets including pulps were higher and cecal levels of DM, CP, and molar proportion of butyric acid were lower than those of the alfalfa diet. Cecal ammonia, VFA, and CF concentrations of the grape marc diet were the lowest of all the diets studied; cecal CF level and molar proportion of acetic acid were significantly higher and CP level and molar proportion of butyric acid were lower in rice hull than in alfalfa diets. Diet had no influence on daily soft feces excretion (10 g DM/d), but N contribution of soft feces to N intake was higher in the diet with citrus pulp (18.7%) than in the other diets (12%). Mean retention time (R) was measured using fuchsin-stained feed and was found to be higher (21.3 h) in the rice hull diet and lower (9.3 h) in the grape marc diet than in the other diets. When coprophagy was prevented, R decreased by 0 to 7 h. In conclusion, the use of byproducts to substitute for traditional sources of fiber in rabbit diets influenced the retention time of the digesta in some segments of the gut and thus altered several digestive criteria.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)  (+info)

Fossilized soft tissues in a Silurian platyceratid gastropod. (4/18)

Gastropod shells are common in the fossil record, but their fossil soft tissues are almost unknown, and have not been reported previously from the Palaeozoic. Here, we describe a Silurian (approx. 425 Myr) platyceratid gastropod from the Herefordshire Lagerstatte that preserves the oldest soft tissues yet reported from an undoubted crown-group mollusc. The digestive system is preserved in detail, and morphological data on the gonads, digestive gland, pedal muscle, radula, mouth and foot are also available. The specimen is preserved three-dimensionally, and has been reconstructed digitally following serial grinding. Platyceratids are often found attached to echinoderms, and have been interpreted as either commensal coprophages or kleptoparasites. The new data provide support for an attached mode of life, and are suggestive of a coprophagous feeding strategy. The affinities of the platyceratids are uncertain; they have been compared to both the patellogastropods and the neritopsines. Analysis of the new material suggests that a patellogastropod affinity is the more plausible of these hypotheses.  (+info)

Coprophagy in a cave-adapted salamander; the importance of bat guano examined through nutritional and stable isotope analyses. (5/18)

During a two year population ecology study in a cave environment, 15 Eurycea (= Typhlotriton) spelaea were observed ingesting bat guano. Furthermore, E. spelaea capture numbers increased significantly during the time that grey bats (Myotis grisescens) deposited fresh guano. We investigated the hypothesis that this behaviour was not incidental to the capture of invertebrate prey, but a diet switch to an energy-rich detritus in an oligotrophic environment. Stable isotope assays determined that guano may be assimilated into salamander muscle tissue, and nutritional analyses revealed that guano is a comparable food source to potential invertebrate prey items. This is the first report of coprophagy in a salamander and in any amphibian for reasons other than intestinal inoculation. Because many temperate subterranean environments are often energy poor and this limitation is thought to select for increased diet breadth, we predict that coprophagy may be common in subterranean vertebrates where it is not currently recognized.  (+info)

Thyrotoxicosis in a dog induced by the consumption of feces from a levothyroxine-supplemented housemate. (8/18)

A 9-year-old golden retriever dog was evaluated for polyuria, polydipsia, weight loss, and elevated serum thyroxine. Targeted questioning revealed that the dog was coprophagic and routinely ingested the feces of a dog that was treated with twice-daily levothyroxine. Clinical signs resolved and serum thyroxine decreased to normal levels in the affected dog with prevention of coprophagy.  (+info)

We recommend keeping one step ahead of your dog, making sure he has no access to the feces to eat it. This means when walking your dog keeping a tight leash to avoid piles that may be in your path. A muzzle may also work when taking your dog out to a dog park. You might try clicker training and rewarding your dog when he does not eat the feces. You might try using liver treats or their favorite toy to redirect your dogs attention away from the feces. There is also the use of a squirt bottle and spraying your dog when he tries to eat the feces. Some people have had success with the remote control shock or spray collars to encourage your dog against eating feces. Also be sure to keep the kitty litter box clean. You may want to check with you vet to make sure that there is NOT an underlying problem causing your dogs Coprophagy. The sooner you work to break you dog of this habit after it starts the better your chances of success are. ...
The transition from carnivory to omnivory is poorly understood. The ability to feed at more than one trophic level theoretically increases an animals fitness in a novel environment. Because of the absence of light and photosynthesis, most subterranean ecosystems are characterized by very few trophic levels, such that food scarcity is a challenge in many subterranean habitats. One strategy against starvation is to expand diet breadth. Grotto Salamanders (Eurycea spelaea (Stejneger, 1892)) are known to ingest bat guano deliberately, challenging the general understanding that salamanders are strictly carnivorous. Here we tested the hypothesis that grotto salamanders have broadened their diet related to cave adaptation and found that, although coprophagous behavior is present, salamanders are unable to acquire sufficient nutrition from bat guano alone. Our results suggest that the coprophagic behavior has emerged prior to physiological or gut biome adaptations.
As the global population of free-ranging domestic dogs grows, there is increasing concern about impacts on human health and wildlife conservation. Effective management of dog populations requires reliable information on their diet, feeding behavior, and social ecology. Free-ranging dogs are reliant on humans, but anthropogenic food subsidies, particularly human faeces (i.e., coprophagy) have not previously been fully quantified. In this study we assess the contributions of different food types to the diet, and their influences on the social behaviour of free-ranging dogs in communal lands of rural Zimbabwe, with a focus on coprophagy. Free-ranging dog diets, body condition, and sociology were studied amongst 72 dogs over 18 months using scat analysis and direct observations. Human faeces constituted the fourth most common item in scats (56% occurrence) and contributed 21% by mass to the observed diet. Human faeces represented a valuable resource because relative to other food items it was consistently

Arguing about various weight loss plans, diet programs and health tips are pointless because there are thousands of evidences to support everyones argument. Your understanding on calories has a vital role to play in your success with various diet programs. Calories are the amount of energy that you need to live a healthy life and your average caloric consumption should not exceed your bodys requirements. People who are looking for shedding weight should use diet programs that will provide lesser calories than the bodys requirement and this calorie deficiency urges us to burn stored fat.. However, many fad diets simply do not have any control over the restricted amount of calories and you will rapidly lose weight, but this is not a good thing because youre likely to suffer from the absence of several minerals and vitamins your body needs on a regular basis. Many fad diets make you lose water weight first but the real fat remains untouched. This is why medical practitioners across the world ...

Let X be a subvariety of Pn defined over a number field and N(B) be the number of rational points of height at most B on X. There are then general conjectures of Manin on the asymptotic behaviour of N(B) when B goes to infinity. These conjectures can be studied using the Hardy-Littlewood method for non-singular complete intersections of high dimensions and by adelic harmonic analysis for varieties related to algebraic groups. But for most varieties there are no other methods available apart from sieve theory and determinant methods. The latter was first developed for affine plane curves in a paper of Bombieri-Pila and extended to projective varieties by Heath-Brown and myself. The goal of the p-adic version of this method is to show that the set of rational points of height at most B on X in a congruence class satisfy further equations if p is large enough compared to B. One can then proceed by induction with respect to dim(X) to obtain uniform upper estimates for N(B) like

A Fascinating Creature. Petroglyph National Monument is unique in many ways, but one of its most striking attributes is the seventeen-mile long volcanic escarpment. In addition to having thousands of petroglyphs on the basalt boulders, the escarpment is home to many plants and animals that may not usually be found this far north in the Chihuahuan Desert. The boulders strewn across the escarpment allow moisture and heat to be concentrated. This gives plants and animals the slight edge they need to be able to survive. One such animal is the millipede. Millipedes are known to exist in many different habitats from rainforests to sub-alpine mountaintops to deserts. The millipedes that live in these diverse habitats have adapted in order to survive the elements. Some have developed mechanisms to keep from freezing, to keep from being eaten or to keep from drying out in the heat. In whatever habitat they occupy, millipedes are fascinating creatures that have a long history and are an important member ...
Millipedes are often mixed up with centipedes, but whereas centipedes have one pair of legs per body segment, millipedes have two. Moreover, millipedes curl up when disturbed; centipedes run away.
Eating feces is usually a behavioral problem, especially in curious puppies that explore different things by picking them up in their mouth. In addition, coprophagia usually attracts a great deal of attention from the owner, which serves to reinforce the behavior. Coprophagia in puppies usually clears up by the time the pup becomes an adult. However, taking measures early can help reduce the possibility of the behavior becoming a long-term habit ...
Coprophagia - Poop Eating Dogs Coprophagia (sometimes called coprophagy, or poop-eating) is a pretty disgusting habit that fortunately only some dogs indulge in. It seems to be one of those things as far as dogs go: a behavior that defies logic and scientific study, and mystifies dog trainers and veterinarians around the world. Many, if not most, dogs will eat the feces of other animals (particularly other dogs, cats, sheep, and horses) with gusto whenever the opportunity presents itself. Its a very common behavior in dogs, but not particularly well understood. The simple truth is that nobody really knows why some dogs will make a beeline for a pile of poop thats lying on the grass. Its natural for dogs to want to sniff the poop - almost all dogs will do this, since the depositors anal glands have left a kind of Post-It note there for other dogs to read - and its just as natural (seemingly) for some dogs to want to consume these little signposts. Its just that we dont really know why ...

The most often asked about pest this past week has been the millipede. As a matter of fact, most callers have been almost beside themselves due to large numbers invading homes. Millipedes are hard shelled animals that are worm-like with many segments. They also curl up when disturbed. Most body segments have 2 pair of legs, except for the 3 behind the head. Adults are 1-2 inches long and can be brown, tan, or gray.. Most millipedes are scavengers. They feed on decaying organic matter such as leaves, compost, and grass clippings. They may sometimes injure small, young plants by feeding on the roots and tender plant parts, but this is rather rare.. When they enter the home in large numbers, they can become quite a nuisance. They do not bite, feed on clothing, or cause any real damage. They are simply a nuisance. Control of millipedes in the house is best accomplished by running the vacuum cleaner.. Most insecticides are not very effective against millipedes. The best way to prevent them from ...
Yellow-spotted Millipede. The yellow-spotted millipede is a species of arthropod in the Myriapoda, the many-legged ones a group that also includes centipedes. Myriapods possess from fewer than 10 to nearly 200 pairs of appendages (legs). They often occur in moist climates like that of the Pacific. Northwest; they may be found in damp places under stones and logs, in leaf litter, or soil. Millipedes play an important ecological role in converting forest floor litter into fertile topsoil.. At certain times of the year forested trails within RNSP are literally crawling with yellow-spotted millipedes and their nymphs, which hatch small and white and take approximately two years and several molts of their exoskeleton to reach maturity. Millipedes belong to the arthropod class Diplopoda, which means double legs, they have two pairs of legs per body segment. Yellow-spotted millipedes have 18-20 body segments and 31 pairs of legs (not a thousand like the name millipede suggests). The cylindrical ...

Dunnocks are nondescript garden songbirds native to much of Europe and the Middle east, and can be found in parts of Asia. They have also been introduced to New Zealand, and it was there that Simon Lamb and his colleagues chose to study a peculiar aspect of avian biology.. For almost all species of birds, nest sanitation is crucial. Nestlings poop, and if the nest isnt to become fouled and stinky, a situation that has the potential to attract predators, something must be done with all of that faeces. In order to make things easier for the parents, the nestlings of some species deposit their wastes in a sac which the adults can carry away from the nest.. Lamb et al. studied an odd behaviour associated with fecal sacs. Although it has not been studied very well, it seems that a lot of parent perching birds sometimes eat the faecal sacs of their chicks, rather than simply discarding them. The ingestion of waste products is known as coprophagy, and it is so remarkable that it requires an ...

Why do dogs eat feces? Labradors can go through a phase where they eat poop. You may never know why, but fortunately, there are ways you can resolve it.

It seems like every few months a study comes out touting the benefits of pet ownership. According to the claims, stroking pets lowers our blood pressure, dog companions increase our exercise, and going to the dog park improves our sociability. But what most studies fail to reveal is the dark, dirty secret that up to 16% of dog owners dont want you to know: THEIR dogs eat poop…a lot! Yes, according to a study presented at the annual ACVB/AVSAB Behavior Symposium in San Diego last month, 16% of dogs are serious stool eaters. That means they have been seen doing it 5 times and 24% have been caught in the act at least once. Dr. Benjamin Hart, a board certified veterinary behaviorist at the University of California, Davis, conducted the study that consisted of two web-based surveys. The first yielded 1,548 usable returns and was about dogs and their traits in general. Dr. Hart also inconspicuously slipped in a few questions about stool eating so that researchers could compare non-stool eaters with ...
In the 1950s Blanche Saunders was a staunch advocate of pet-dog training, travelling throughout the U.S. to promote obedience classes.[17] In The Complete Book of Dog Obedience, she said, Dogs learn by associating their act with a pleasing or displeasing result. They must be disciplined when they do wrong, but they must also be rewarded when they do right.[24] Negative reinforcement procedures played a key part in Saunders method, primarily the jerking of the choke chain. The mantra taught to students was Command! Jerk! Praise! She felt that food should not be an ongoing reward, but that it was acceptable to use a tidbit now and then to overcome a problem. Saunders perhaps began the shift away from military and police training methods, stressing repeatedly the importance of reinforcement for good behaviour in training-a move toward the positive training methods used today.[25] ...

The transition from carnivory to omnivory is poorly understood. The ability to feed at more than one trophic level theoretically increases an animals fitness in a novel environment. Because of the absence of light and photosynthesis, most subterranean ecosystems are characterized by very few trophic levels, such that food scarcity is a challenge in many subterranean habitats. One strategy against starvation is to expand diet breadth. Grotto Salamanders (Eurycea spelaea (Stejneger, 1892)) are known to ingest bat guano deliberately, challenging the general understanding that salamanders are strictly carnivorous. Here we tested the hypothesis that grotto salamanders have broadened their diet related to cave adaptation and found that, although coprophagous behavior is present, salamanders are unable to acquire sufficient nutrition from bat guano alone. Our results suggest that the coprophagic behavior has emerged prior to physiological or gut biome adaptations.
