Apolipoprotein A-I of hyperlipidemia atherosclerosis prone (LAP) quail: cDNA sequence and tissue expression. (1/926)

Apolipoprotein A-I (apo A-I) has an important role in the transport of cholesterol. This study describes the complete nucleotide and deduced amino acid sequence for apo A-I of LAP quail. A full length apo A-I cDNA clone for hyperlipidemia atherosclerosis prone (LAP) quail was isolated from a lambda gt10 liver cDNA library. The DNA sequence of LAP apo A-I cDNA was similar to that of normal Japanese quail. The deduced amino acid sequence of LAP apo A-I was hence identical to that of normal Japanese quail. LAP apo A-I mRNA is about 1.4 kilobases in length and expressed in a variety of tissues including small intestine, liver, lung, breast muscle, testis, and heart. Although the tissue distribution of apo A-I was similar between strains, LAP quail expressed more apo A-I mRNA than normal Japanese quail in all tissues examined. This tendency was pronounced with the small intestine. Although the concentration of serum apo A-I did not correlate with the tissue expression of mRNA, the observation may suggest that the increased apo A-I expression in LAP strain had some relevance to the susceptibility of this strain to the experimental atherosclerosis.  (+info)

Production of donor-derived offspring by transfer of primordial germ cells in Japanese quail. (2/926)

We transfused concentrated primordial germ cells (PGCs) of the black strain (D: homozygous for the autosomal incomplete dominant gene, D) of quail into the embryos of the wild-type plumage strain (WP: d+/d+) of quail. The recipient quail were raised until sexual maturity and a progeny test of the putative germline chimeras was performed to examine the donor gamete-derived offspring (D/d+). Thirty-one percent (36/115) of the transfused quail hatched and 21 (13 females and 8 males) of them reached maturity. Five females and 2 males were germline chimeras producing donor gamete-derived offspring. Transmission rates of the donor derived gametes in the chimeric females and males were 1.8-8.3% and 2.6-63.0%, respectively. Germline chimeric and the other putative chimeric males were also test-mated with females from the sex-linked imperfect albino strain (AL: d+/d+, al/W, where al indicates the sex-linked imperfect albino gene on the Z chromosome, and W indicates the W chromosome) for autosexing of W-bearing spermatozoa: No albino offspring were born.  (+info)

Protective effects of type I and type II interferons toward Rous sarcoma virus-induced tumors in chickens. (3/926)

Growth of tumors induced by Rous sarcoma virus (RSV) is controlled by alleles at the major histocompatibility complex locus in chickens, indicating that immunological host defense mechanisms play a major role. We show here that the resistance phenotype of CB regressor chickens can be partially reverted by treating the animals with a monoclonal antibody that neutralizes the major serotype of chicken type I interferon, ChIFN-alpha. Injection of recombinant ChIFN-alpha into susceptible CC progressor chickens resulted in a dose-dependent inhibition of RSV-induced tumor development. This treatment was not effective, however, in CC chickens challenged with a DNA construct expressing the v-src oncogene, suggesting that the beneficial effect of type I interferon in this system resulted from its intrinsic antiviral activity and probably not from indirect immunmodulatory effects. By contrast, recombinant chicken interferon-gamma strongly inhibited tumor growth when given to CC chickens that were challenged with the v-src oncogene, indicating that the two cytokines target different steps of tumor development.  (+info)

Quantitative changes in integrin and focal adhesion signaling regulate myoblast cell cycle withdrawal. (4/926)

We previously demonstrated contrasting roles for integrin alpha subunits and their cytoplasmic domains in controlling cell cycle withdrawal and the onset of terminal differentiation (Sastry, S., M. Lakonishok, D. Thomas, J. Muschler, and A.F. Horwitz. 1996. J. Cell Biol. 133:169-184). Ectopic expression of the integrin alpha5 or alpha6A subunit in primary quail myoblasts either decreases or enhances the probability of cell cycle withdrawal, respectively. In this study, we addressed the mechanisms by which changes in integrin alpha subunit ratios regulate this decision. Ectopic expression of truncated alpha5 or alpha6A indicate that the alpha5 cytoplasmic domain is permissive for the proliferative pathway whereas the COOH-terminal 11 amino acids of alpha6A cytoplasmic domain inhibit proliferation and promote differentiation. The alpha5 and alpha6A cytoplasmic domains do not appear to initiate these signals directly, but instead regulate beta1 signaling. Ectopically expressed IL2R-alpha5 or IL2R-alpha6A have no detectable effect on the myoblast phenotype. However, ectopic expression of the beta1A integrin subunit or IL2R-beta1A, autonomously inhibits differentiation and maintains a proliferative state. Perturbing alpha5 or alpha6A ratios also significantly affects activation of beta1 integrin signaling pathways. Ectopic alpha5 expression enhances expression and activation of paxillin as well as mitogen-activated protein (MAP) kinase with little effect on focal adhesion kinase (FAK). In contrast, ectopic alpha6A expression suppresses FAK and MAP kinase activation with a lesser effect on paxillin. Ectopic expression of wild-type and mutant forms of FAK, paxillin, and MAP/erk kinase (MEK) confirm these correlations. These data demonstrate that (a) proliferative signaling (i.e., inhibition of cell cycle withdrawal and the onset of terminal differentiation) occurs through the beta1A subunit and is modulated by the alpha subunit cytoplasmic domains; (b) perturbing alpha subunit ratios alters paxillin expression and phosphorylation and FAK and MAP kinase activation; (c) quantitative changes in the level of adhesive signaling through integrins and focal adhesion components regulate the decision of myoblasts to withdraw from the cell cycle, in part via MAP kinase.  (+info)

Myotube heterogeneity in developing chick craniofacial skeletal muscles. (5/926)

Avian skeletal muscles consist of myotubes that can be categorized according to contraction and fatigue properties, which are based largely on the types of myosins and metabolic enzymes present in the cells. Most mature muscles in the head are mixed, but they display a variety of ratios and distributions of fast and slow muscle cells. We examine the development of all head muscles in chick and quail embryos, using immunohistochemical assays that distinguish between fast and slow myosin heavy chain (MyHC) isoforms. Some muscles exhibit the mature spatial organization from the onset of primary myotube differentiation (e.g., jaw adductor complex). Many other muscles undergo substantial transformation during the transition from primary to secondary myogenesis, becoming mixed after having started as exclusively slow (e.g., oculorotatory, neck muscles) or fast (e.g., mandibular depressor) myotube populations. A few muscles are comprised exclusively of fast myotubes throughout their development and in the adult (e.g., the quail quadratus and pyramidalis muscles, chick stylohyoideus muscles). Most developing quail and chick head muscles exhibit identical fiber type composition; exceptions include the genioglossal (chick: initially slow, quail: mixed), quadratus and pyramidalis (chick: mixed, quail: fast), and stylohyoid (chick: fast, quail: mixed). The great diversity of spatial and temporal scenarios during myogenesis of head muscles exceeds that observed in the limbs and trunk, and these observations, coupled with the results of precursor mapping studies, make it unlikely that a lineage based model, in which individual myoblasts are restricted to fast or slow fates, is in operation. More likely, spatiotemporal patterning of muscle fiber types is coupled with the interactions that direct the movements of muscle precursors and subsequent segregation of individual muscles from common myogenic condensations. In the head, most of these events are facilitated by connective tissue precursors derived from the neural crest. Whether these influences act upon uncommitted, or biased but not restricted, myogenic mesenchymal cells remains to be tested.  (+info)

Retinal TUNEL-positive cells and high glutamate levels in vitreous humor of mutant quail with a glaucoma-like disorder. (6/926)

PURPOSE: To investigate whether retinal cell death observed in an avian glaucoma-like disorder occurs by apoptosis and whether an increase in excitotoxic amino acid concentration in the vitreous humor is associated temporally with cell death in the retina. METHODS: Presumptive retinal apoptotic nuclei were identified by histochemical detection of DNA fragmentation (by TdT-dUTP terminal nick-end labeling [TUNEL]), and vitreal concentrations of glutamate and several other amino acids were determined by high-pressure liquid chromatography with fluorometric detection in the al mutant quail (Coturnix coturnix japonica) in which a glaucoma-like disorder develops spontaneously. RESULTS: TUNEL-labeled nuclei were located mostly in the ganglion cell layer (GCL) in the retina of mutant quails 3 months after hatching. However, labeled nuclei were also observed in the inner and outer nuclear layers. At 7 months, most TUNEL-positive nuclei were detected in the inner nuclear layer, whereas labeled cells in the GCL were reduced in number. No TUNEL-labeled nuclei were detected in the retina of control quails at any age. Vitreal concentrations of glutamate and aspartate were significantly increased in 1-month-old mutant quails compared with control animals. Concentrations decreased at 3 months, and no significant differences were observed between strains at 7 months. CONCLUSIONS: Presumptive apoptotic cell death is detected from 3 months after hatching in mutant quails and is not restricted to retinal ganglion cells. Cell death appears just after a significant increase in excitotoxic amino acid concentrations in the vitreous humor, suggesting a correlation between both events.  (+info)

Connexin 43 expression reflects neural crest patterns during cardiovascular development. (7/926)

We used transgenic mice in which the promoter sequence for connexin 43 linked to a lacZ reporter was expressed in neural crest but not myocardial cells to document the pattern of cardiac neural crest cells in the caudal pharyngeal arches and cardiac outflow tract. Expression of lacZ was strikingly similar to that of cardiac neural crest cells in quail-chick chimeras. By using this transgenic mouse line to compare cardiac neural crest involvement in cardiac outflow septation and aortic arch artery development in mouse and chick, we were able to note differences and similarities in their cardiovascular development. Similar to neural crest cells in the chick, lacZ-positive cells formed a sheath around the persisting aortic arch arteries, comprised the aorticopulmonary septation complex, were located at the site of final fusion of the conal cushions, and populated the cardiac ganglia. In quail-chick chimeras generated for this study, neural crest cells entered the outflow tract by two pathways, submyocardially and subendocardially. In the mouse only the subendocardial population of lacZ-positive cells could be seen as the cells entered the outflow tract. In addition lacZ-positive cells completely surrounded the aortic sac prior to septation, while in the chick, neural crest cells were scattered around the aortic sac with the bulk of cells distributed in the bridging portion of the aorticopulmonary septation complex. In the chick, submyocardial populations of neural crest cells assembled on opposite sides of the aortic sac and entered the conotruncal ridges. Even though the aortic sac in the mouse was initially surrounded by lacZ-positive cells, the two outflow vessels that resulted from its septation showed differential lacZ expression. The ascending aorta was invested by lacZ-positive cells while the pulmonary trunk was devoid of lacZ staining. In the chick, both of these vessels were invested by neural crest cells, but the cells arrived secondarily by displacement from the aortic arch arteries during vessel elongation. This may indicate a difference in derivation of the pulmonary trunk in the mouse or a difference in distribution of cardiac neural crest cells. An independent mouse neural crest marker is needed to confirm whether the differences are indeed due to species differences in cardiovascular and/or neural crest development. Nevertheless, with the differences noted, we believe that this mouse model faithfully represents the location of cardiac neural crest cells. The similarities in location of lacZ-expressing cells in the mouse to that of cardiac neural crest cells in the chick suggest that this mouse is a good model for studying mammalian cardiac neural crest and that the mammalian cardiac neural crest performs functions similar to those shown for chick.  (+info)

Neural crest can form cartilages normally derived from mesoderm during development of the avian head skeleton. (8/926)

The lateral wall of the avian braincase, which is indicative of the primitive amniote condition, is formed from mesoderm. In contrast, mammals have replaced this portion of their head skeleton with a nonhomologous bone of neural crest origin. Features that characterize the local developmental environment may have enabled a neural crest-derived skeletal element to be integrated into a mesodermal region of the braincase during the course of evolution. The lateral wall of the braincase lies along a boundary in the head that separates neural crest from mesoderm, and also, neural crest cells migrate through this region on their way to the first visceral arch. Differences in the availability of one skeletogenic population versus the other may determine the final composition of the lateral wall of the braincase. Using the quail-chick chimeric system, this investigation tests if populations of neural crest, when augmented and expanded within populations of mesoderm, will give rise to the lateral wall of the braincase. Results demonstrate that neural crest can produce cartilages that are morphologically indistinguishable from elements normally generated by mesoderm. These findings (1) indicate that neural crest can respond to the same cues that both promote skeletogenesis and enable proper patterning in mesoderm, (2) challenge hypotheses on the nature of the boundary between neural crest and mesoderm in the head, and (3) suggest that changes in the allocation of migrating cells could have enabled a neural crest-derived skeletal element to replace a mesodermal portion of the braincase during evolution.  (+info)

The impact of endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs) has been demonstrated in mammalian models, but less research is available for avian species. The effects of vinclozolin (VIN), an antiandrogenic fungicide, on sexual differentiation and maturation were investigated in Japanese quail (Coturnix coturnix japonica). On day 4 of incubation, embryos were exposed to no treatment, oil, or 25, 50, or 100 ppm of VIN. Endpoints measured included adult male reproductive behavior, hypothalamic gonadotropin-releasing hormone I (GnRH-I) content in hatchlings and adults, plasma steroid levels in hatchlings and adults, proctodeal gland growth during maturation, and relative testicular weight at seven weeks of age. Results showed that exposure to VIN significantly (p | 0.05) altered GnRH-I in male hatchlings, whereas GnRH-I levels in females remained unaffected. Although steroid levels were unaltered by any VIN treatment, the display of male reproductive behavior seemed delayed, with the number of mounts and the...

Lipoproteins from generations five and six of Japanese quail (Coturnix coturnix japonica) divergently selected for increased (HW) or decreased (LW) body weight at 4 weeks of age or increased (HP) or decreased (LP) plasma yolk precursor at the initiation of egg production were separated into fractions of d less than 1.006 and d greater than 1.006. A randombred control (R1) was also sampled. Total lipids (TL), neutral lipids (NL), and phospholipids (PL) were determined. The NLs of the d less than 1.006 lipoprotein fractions were also analyzed for cholesterol esters (CE), triglycerides (TG), cholesterol (C), and a fraction of minor lipid components including digycerides (DG+). A correlation of .960 between total plasma phosphorus and TL of the d less than 1.006 lipoprotein fraction was observed. No strain effect was noted for TL, NL, or PL for either generation in the d greater than 1.006 fraction. In the d less than 1.006 fraction, TL, NL, and PL all varied concurrently, with the order being HP ...
INTRODUCTION. Reproduction of birds depends on photoperiod, rainfall, humidity, temperature and food as well as intrinsic factors (Lake, 1981; Lofts & Murton, 1968). In temperate zones, seasonal day length variation serves as the primary role of timing reproductive periodicity (Lofts & Murton). The majority of species outside the tropics rely on a food resource for their young that become available for a predictable period each year. The length of the breeding season varies between species, but in the vast majority, the breeding season is asymmetrical with changes in photoperiod. When mature male coturnix were exposed to short photoperiods (6L: 18D) a rapid testicular weight reduction was recorded (Follett & Farner, 1966). Reduction of testicular weight in the common coturnix, exposed to short days (8 h of light), was more rapid in a colder than in a warmer environment (Wilson et al., 1971). The two most critical features in the seasonality of an environment are the amplitude of the seasonal ...

The present studyinvestigated the impact of selection for body weight (BW) on productive performance, predicted BW and genetic improvement of related traits in Japanese quail. Base population, selected parent and F1 progeny were tested. Pens and cages were used for rearing and breeding. A total of 240 birds in two successive generations, 27 sires and 54 dams (as selected parents) were used. Body weight from multiple regression equation, covariance analysis and combining models were estimated, response to selection, realized heritability and genetic correlation were computed for BW, weight gain (WG), feed intake (FI) and feed conversion ratio (FCR). The results showed that the response to selection for BW, WG, FI and FCR were 11.48 g, 27.04 g, 37 g and -0.2, respectively. The estimated heritabilities for the same traits were 0.78, 0.67, 0.52 and 0.77, respectively. Predicted equation (DUHOK equation) for BW as dependent variable on the initial body weight and sex ratio was derived. The final response for

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

The variability in toxic response of Japanese quail (Coturnix coturnix japonica) to a standardized 5-day subacute feeding trial was studied while age was increased at weekly intervals from 1 to 21 days and at different times with 14-day-old birds. The objectives were to identify the strengths and limitations of this subacute toxicity protocol and to provide possible explanations for differences in response among the various classes of pesticides. The variables included the median lethal concentration (LC50), the dose-response slope, food consumption, mortality patterns, and procedures of preparing toxic diets. Carbamate, organophosphate, chlorinated hydrocarbon, and organic mercury compounds were represented. A total of 60 subacute tests were involved in this evaluation. The general conclusions of the study are as follows: (1) The basic protocol yields good within-laboratory reproducibility of results. (2) The LC50s increase as birds grow older, and the change was reasonably predictable between 7 and 21

and heart rate between experimental and control groups in the current study do not manifest until the last third of incubation.. The secondary development period, or last few days of incubation, in reptiles and precocial birds is where organogenesis is complete and neuromuscular activity is increasing to prepare the neonate for complex movement immediately after hatching. This period has been proposed as the phase of incubation that can be shortened if necessary to reduce incubation period for group emergence from the nest. Japanese quail chicks (Coturnix coturnix japonica) with accelerated development take 1-2 h more to stand than normal chicks [20], and neuromuscular function of less-developed embryonic painted turtles (C. picta) is reduced for up to 9 months after hatching [14]. However, increases in metabolic rate in E. macquarii translated directly into increased rates of embryonic development because (i) more yolk reserves were used by experimental groups and (ii) neuromuscular ...
In our recent studies domesticated fowl species in the range from 150 g (Japanese quail, Coturnix coturnix japonica) to 19 kg (turkey, Meleagris gallopavo) were analysed, to elucidate supposed allometric relationship of the membrane lipid fatty acids (FA). The basis of all studies was the „membranes as pacemakers of metabolism by Hulbert (Lipids, 2007, 42, 811-819). First in the myocardium (B=-0.6), later in the avian kidney (-0.18) and lung (-0.24), as well as liver (-0.2) negative allometric scaling was found for docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). In the membrane FAs of all these tissues rather balanced polyunsaturation, negatively scaling n3 and unsaturation index and oppositely related n6 and monounsaturated FA molar proportions were described. In the lavaged avian lung surfactant phopsholipids we reported similar negative allometry for DHA. In contarst, avian brain phospholipid FA composition failed to provide body mass relation. We found unexpected results (positive allometry for n3 FAs, DHA, ...

Diphasic Analysis of Growth in Japanese Quail Japanese Quail;Growth Curves;Monophasic Function;Diphasic Function;Asymptotic Weight;Growth Rate; A line of Japanese quail selected for increased body weight for 15 generations (C) and an unselected control line (K) were used to examine the impact of selection for body weight on the growth curve of Japanese quail. In addition, the effect of sex on the growth curve in each line was also studied, namely females of C (CF), males of C (CM), females of K (KF) and males of K (KM). The monophasic and diphasic growth models were studied for adequacy in describing growth curves of quail in both sexes of the C and K lines. The monophasic function provided almost the same growth rate for both sexes in both lines. However, the growth rates calculated by means of the diphasic function differed between sexes for both lines, except for those calculated for C during the second growth phase. While there were 2-3 days difference between sexes in age at maximum gain in both

Quail show social behaviors close to those observed in the chicken. Moreover, Japanese Quail and chickens have the same number of chromosomes despite showing several morphological differences [39]. As such, the Japanese Quail can be considered as a reliable model for the chicken in the field of genetics [40]. However, a previous study by Inoue-Murayama et al. [41] showed that genetic markers used in the genetic mapping for the chicken were ineffective in Japanese Quail, which highlighted the need to develop quail-specific markers. Consequently several maps were developed using AFLP markers [18], microsatellite markers [19] and both [20]. Comparisons between the information from the quail genetic map and from the assembled chicken sequence showed that the macrochromosomes of the two species had a highly conserved synteny [42]. Similarly, cytogenetic comparisons by Shibusawa et al. [43], showed conservation of the chromosomal organization between the two species. Nevertheless, Kayang et al. [42] ...
Japanese quail (Coturnix japonica) may appear to many as exotic, relative newcomers to the poultry sector but they have been part of the domestic bird scene since the 12th (potentially even the 11th) century. Interest in quail farming has grown post World War II with more time and effort devoted to selective breeding and mass production. As consumer interest in quail gathers apace - for evidence of this, check the number of well-known retailers that now stock quail eggs - so the way in which the birds are farmed is being more closely scrutinised. Quail reared for their eggs are normally kept in battery-cage-style systems, whereas quail reared for meat are generally housed in high-capacity barn systems. Concern with the animal-welfare compromises of these set-ups, and with large-scale imports of birds and eggs from low-regulation farms in, for example, France and Spain, has seen several UK-based producers develop free-range or higher-welfare quail farms over the past decade or so. One of the key ...

Japanese quail are hardy birds that thrive in small cages and are inexpensive to keep. They are affected by common poultry diseases but are fairly disease resistant. Japanese quail mature in about 6 weeks and are usually in full egg production by 50 days of age. With proper care, hens should lay 200 eggs in their first year of lay. Life expectancy is only 2 to 2½ years.. This illustrated Primefact includes information on breeding Japanese quail, incubation and hatching of eggs, brooding and care of young birds, housing, nutritional requirements, husbandry, disease prevention and control, and commercial processing and marketing.. ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Photoperiodic modulation of gonadotrophin secretion in castrated Japanese quail. AU - Urbanski, H. F.. AU - Follett, B. K.. PY - 1982/1/1. Y1 - 1982/1/1. N2 - Male Japanese quail were castrated when sexually immature and immediately exposed to one of the following stimulatory lighting regimes for 52 days: 11 h light: 13 h darkness/day (11L:13D), 12L:12D, 13L:11D, 14L:10D, 15L:9D, 16L:8D, 20L:4D or 23L:1D. One group was retained on short days (8L:16D). Clearcut differences in the plasma levels of LH and FSH emerged between the various groups. Levels remained very low in castrated quail on 8L:16D but were much greater in those on 14L:10D, 15L:9D, 16L:8D, 20L:4D and 23L:1D, eventually becoming 15 to 20 times higher. Less pronounced castration responses developed on 13L:11D, 12L:12D or 11L:13D. Alterations in photoperiod after day 52 caused an appropriate rise or fall in LH secretion. Photoperiodically induced suppressions were rapid, being highly significant within 4 days, but ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Effects of supra-nutritional levels of vitamin E and vitamin C on growth performance and blood parameters of Japanese quails. AU - Gallo, Antonio. AU - Prandini, Aldo. AU - Sigolo, Samantha. AU - Khazaei, Roshanak. AU - Seidavi, Alireza. AU - Ayasan, Tugay. PY - 2019. Y1 - 2019. N2 - A study was conducted to evaluate growth performance and blood serum parameters of Japanese quails fed diets containing different supra-nutritional levels of vitamin E and C (600, 800 and 1000 mg/kg). A completely randomised design was adopted and main effects (vitamin E and C) were arranged in a 3 × 3 factorial approach. Throughout the study (1-42 d), the supplementation with 1000 mg/kg vitamin E and C resulted in the highest feed intake, weight gain, and final body weight (p ,.01). Serum parameters showed that vitamin E and C at 1000 mg/kg determined the lowest serum concentrations of glucose, uric acid and creatinine (p ≤ 0.01) and the highest of high (HDL, p =.01) and low (LDL, p =.05) density ...
Detecting the genetic and physiological variations in two Japanese quail strains could be used to suggest a new avian model for future breeding studies. Consequently, two estimations were performed on two Japanese quail strains: gray quail strain (GJQS) and white jumbo quail strain (WJQS). The first estimation was conducted on carcass characteristics, breast muscles, breast concentration of collagen type I, and body measurements. In contrast, blood samples were collected for the second estimation for genomic DNA extraction and genetic analysis. A total of 62 alleles out of 97 specific alleles (63.92%) were detected overall loci (14 microsatellite loci) for the two strains. A total of 27 specific alleles of WJQS were observed, and 35 were obtained for GJQS. The percentage of similarity was 48.09% ranged from 4.35 with UBC001 to 100% with GUJ0051. WJQS had greater body weights and a higher value of pectoral muscle and supracoracoideus muscle than GJQS. The breast muscles of GJQS exhibited a higher

Am späten Nachmittag hatte ich mich mit meinem Landrover Discovery aufgemacht, das Grasland zu erkunden. Der Ausflug Mitte März war mit Sichtungen von Steppenweihen (Circus macrourus), Wachtel (Coturnix coturnix), Stanley oder Kafferntrappe (Neotis denhami) und sogar einigen Klunkerkranich (Burgeranus carunculatus) schon sehr erfolgreich gewesen. Nun ist es gut 17:00 als ich mich auf den Rückweg mache. Im Westen hat sich eine Riesenwolkenbarriere aufgebaut. Aus einem Teil regnet es in Strömen heraus. Über mir ist aber noch alles perfekt in Blau. Leider wird aber durch die Wolkenbank die Sonne abgeblockt.

Vertebrates release glucocorticoids during stressful events. If stress occurs during reproduction, the resulting offspring can show altered phenotypes that are thought to arise from increased exposure to maternal glucocorticoids. Developing offspring can metabolize maternal glucocorticoids, which can alter the pattern of exposure they encounter. For egg laying vertebrates, we are just beginning to understand how embryonic steroid metabolism impacts embryonic exposure to maternal glucocorticoids. Here we injected three doses of radioactive corticosterone into Japanese quail (Coturnix japonica) eggs to determine the degree of embryonic exposure at days six and nine of development. We found that increasing injection dose increased the amount of radioactivity found in the embryo at day six but by day nine the effect of injection dose disappeared as the amount of radioactivity within the embryo dropped to equivalent levels for all three doses. Interestingly, when examined as a percentage of initial dose,

[more ▼]. A series of 4 experiments was designed to study the relationships between the activity of the aromatase (AA) in the preoptic area (POA) and the activation by testosterone (T) of copulatory behavior in gonadectomized male and female Japanese quail. The induction of AA by T in the POA is dose- and time-dependent. Levels of AA seen in sexually mature males are restored in castrated birds by a treatment with 20 to 40 mm silastic T capsules which produce physiological levels of steroid in the plasma. The minimal dose of T (10 mm implant) which reliably restores copulatory behavior approximately doubles the AA in the POA. The induction of AA is significantly larger in males than in females. A significant increase in AA is observed within 16 ...

In vivo administration of estradiol benzoate (E2B) or parathyroid hormone (PTH) stimulates in vitro renal conversion of 25-hydroxyvitamin D3 [25-(OH)D3] to 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 [1,25-(OH)2D3] in birds. In the present investigation, the effect of PTH on 1,25-(OH)2D3 production was studied in female Japanese quail pretreated with the antiestrogen, tamoxifen citrate (30 mg/kg) daily for 7 days. PTH was injected at two different doses (92 and 275 U.S.P. units/kg) every 8 hours during the last two days of tamoxifen treatment. E2B (0.1 and 1.0 mg/kg) was injected 24 hours before sacrifice. Control groups received vehicle only. All injections were given intramuscularly. Kidney homogenates were prepared and incubated with tritiated 25-(OH)D3. E2B-induced stimulation of 1,25-(OH)2D3 production was completely blocked by prior treatment with tamoxifen, but PTH-induced stimulation of 1,25-(OH)2D3 production was unaffected by antiestrogen treatment. When PTH and E2B were injected together, no additive ...
The avian leukemia sarcoma virus S13 transforms chicken and Japanese quail embryo fibroblasts and chicken erythroid cells in tissue culture. S13-induced erythroid transformation requires culture conditions suitable for the growth of normal erythroid precursors (H. Beug and M. J. Hayman (1984), Cell 36, 963-972). S13-transformed erythroid colonies contain a high percentage of cells that differentiate in absence of erythropoietin. S13 is defective in pol and env functions but can code for a complete set of gag proteins. Nonproducer cell clones transformed by S13 release a noninfectious viral particle containing gag but no functional env or pol proteins. They also synthesize a transformation-specific protein of 155,000 molecular weight. This protein reacts with antibody to viral envelope glycoproteins and appears to represent onc as well as env sequences. The 155,000-molecular weight env-linked protein does not cross react immunologically with an antiserum against the v-erb A and v-erb B gene ...
Abstract. The aim of the performed investigations was to compare eggs of Japanese quail layers of different weights with regard to their shape, selected traits of the content following various times of their storage as well as the results of hatchability and body weight of one-day old chicks. Hatching eggs were divided into four groups: group S - up to 10.50 g, group M - from 10.51 to 11.50 g, group L - from 11.51 to 12.50 g and group XL - from 12.51 g. In experiment I, on days: 1, 3, 5, 7 and 10 of storage, the following traits were assessed in 20 eggs from each group: egg weight (g) and yolk and albumen index as well as the number of Haugh units. In experiment II, five hatches were carried out. The total of 480 eggs were incubated in each hatch (120 eggs for each group). On the 15th day of incubation, the eggs were weighed. After hatching, 30 chicks from each group were weighed. Basic hatchability indices were also determined. Eggs with the smallest weight, stored for 1 day, with the smallest ...
en] In Japanese quail, testosterone (T) increases the Nissl staining density in the medial preoptic nucleus (POM) in relation to the differential activation by T of copulatory behavior. The effect of T on protein synthesis was quantified here in 97 discrete brain regions by the in vivo autoradio-graphic C-14-leucine (Leu) incorporation method in adult gonadectomized male and female quail that had been treated for 4 weeks with T or left without hormone. T activated male sexual behaviors in males but not females. Overall Leu incorporation was increased by T in five brain regions, many of which contain sex steroid receptors such as the POM, archistriatum and lateral hypothalamus. T decreased Leu incorporation in the medial septum. Leu incorporation was higher in males than females in two nuclei but higher in females in three nuclei including the hypothalamic ventromedial nucleus. Significant interactions between effects of T and sex were seen in 13 nuclei: in most nuclei (n=12), T increased Leu ...
The hop (Humulus lupulus), a component of beer, is a sedative plant whose pharmacological activity is due principally to its bitter resins, especially to the α-acid component 2-methyl-3-buten-2-ol. The mechanism of action of the resin of hop consists of increasing the activity of the neurotransmitter γ-aminobutyric (GABA), inhibiting the central nervous system (CNS). Objectives: To analyze in an experimental model of diurnal animal the sedative effect of hop, a component of beer, on the activity/rest rhythm. Methods: Experiments were performed with common quail (Coturnix coturnix) similar to humans in the sleep-wake rhythm, isolated in 25 × 25 × 25 cm methacrylate cages, with food and water ad libitum, in a room with artificial ventilation (22 ± 1 °C) and a lighting cycle of 12L/12D (n = 5). The doses administered, close to the content of non-alcoholic beer, were 1, 2 and 11 mg extract of hop as one capsule per day, at 18:00 h for one week. A control group received capsules only with a ...
Coturnism is an illness featuring muscle tenderness and rhabdomyolysis (muscle cell breakdown) after consuming quail (usually common quail, Coturnix coturnix, from which the name derives) that have fed on poisonous plants. From case histories it is known that the toxin is stable as four-month-old pickled quail have been poisonous. Humans vary in their susceptibility; only one in four people who consumed quail soup containing the toxin fell ill. The toxin is apparently fat-soluble as potatoes fried in quail fat have proved poisonous. Coniine from hemlock consumed by quail has been suggested as the cause, though quail resist eating hemlock. Hellebore has also been suggested as the source of the toxin. It has also been asserted that this evidence points to the seeds of the annual woundwort (Stachys annua) being the causal agent. It has been suggested that Galeopsis ladanum seeds are not responsible. Migration routes and season may affect quail risk. Quail are never poisonous outside the migration ...

In the VRAL (LDAI, 2008) 12 feeding studies with birds (7 bounded NOECs) have been selected. An update of that database was made with 2 additional studies for birds (1 bounded NOEC). Sub-chronic and chronic studies for 4 different bird species were collected from literature, ie for Gallus domesticus, Gallus sp., Colinus virginianus (Bobwhite quail) and Coturnix japonica (Japanese quail). For birds oral toxicity the values varied between 100 and 2000 mg/kg ww. The lowest value of 100 mg Pb/kg ww was used to derive the PNEC, which was observed in several experiments with Japanese quails after 12 weeks. According to the guidance, the PNECoral was calculated from the lowest NOECoral using an assesment factor. An assessment factor of 6 has been selected on the lowest toxicity data. Considering a background concentration of 1.3 mg Pb/kg in the food, the PNECoral can be calculated as: PNECoral = (NOEC +Cb)/AF = (100+1.3)/6 = 16.9 mg/kg food (birds). ...
Abstract: In humans and other animals, melatonin is involved in the control of circadian biological rhythms. Here, we show that melatonin affects the temporal pattern of behavioral sequences in a noncircadian manner. The zebra finch (Taeniopygia guttata) song and the crow of the Japanese quail (Coturnix japonica) are courtship vocalizations composed of a stereotyped sequence of syllables. The zebra finch song is learned from conspecifics during infancy, whereas the Japanese quail crow develops normally without auditory input. We recorded and analyzed the complete vocal activity of adult birds of both species kept in social isolation for several weeks. In both species, we observed a shortening of signal duration following the transfer from a light-dark (LD) cycle to constant light (LL), a condition known to abolish melatonin production and to disrupt circadian rhythmicity. This effect was reversible because signal duration increased when the photoperiod was returned to the previous LD schedule. ...

Animal welfare is strongly influenced by characteristics of the animals environment. Thus, enrichment of Mammals and Birds environments at early age modulates their behavioural development and can increase their ability to cope with their milieu, consequently improving the animals welfare. However, individual behavioural development is strongly affected prenatally by maternal living conditions. Many authors consider these prenatal maternal effects to be prenatal adaptive mechanisms preparing offspring for their postnatal environment. In this context, our study investigated the effects of environmental enrichment (via foraging and structural enrichments) of laying Japanese quail females living conditions on their offsprings general development. For that, 10 laying quail were kept in enriched cages (EC females) for 5 weeks and characteristics of their eggs and chicks were compared to those of 10 females housed in standard cage (SC females). After the treatment, EC females were heavier than SC
There can be no doubt that the Hebrew word in the Pentateuch (Exodus 16:13; Numbers 11:31,32) and in the 105th Psalm, denotes the common quail, Coturnix dactylisonans . (The enormous quantity of quails taken by the Israelites has its parallel in modern times. Pliny states that they sometimes alight on vessels in the Mediterranean and sink them. Colenel Sykes states that 160,000 quails have been netted in one season on the island of Capri.--ED.) The expression as it were two cubits (high) upon the face of the earth, (Numbers 11:31) refers probably to the height at which the quails flew above the ground, in their exhausted condition from their long flight. As to the enormous quantities which the least-successful Israelite is said to have taken viz. ten homers (i.e. eighty bushels) in the space of a night and two days, there is every reason for believing that the homers here spoken of do not denote strictly the measure of that name but simply a heap. The Israelites would have had little ...

Everyone has heard of chicken eggs as they are the most popular types of eggs consumed. But did you know that quail eggs, which taste pretty similar to chicken eggs though they are a little stronger, due to a higher yolk-to-white ratio, have a much higher nutritional value than its counterpart? Thats right! Quail eggs have an abundance of health benefits, and, with regular consumption, will help combat a number of illnesses and diseases. Quail eggs are smaller in size than chicken eggs but they are packed with tons of nutrients and have more than double the nutritional value than chicken eggs. They dont contain any bad cholesterol, known as LDL, only the good kind of cholesterol, called HDL.. If you consume quail eggs regularly, you will get a boost in energy, thanks to the amount of antioxidants, minerals and protein they contain. Not only do they stimulate growth in children and young adults but they improve metabolism because of the Vitamin B theyre packed with! Also, they will get rid of ...

Neural crest cells (NCCs) are a multipotent, migratory cell population that generates an astonishingly diverse array of cell types during vertebrate development. The trunk neural crest has long been considered of particular significance. First, it has been held that the trunk neural crest has a morphogenetic role, acting to coordinate the development of the peripheral nervous system, secretory cells of the endocrine system and pigment cells of the skin. Second, the trunk neural crest additionally has skeletal potential. However, it has been demonstrated that a key role of the trunk neural crest streams is to organize the innervation of the intestine. Although trunk NCCs have a limited capacity for self-renewal, sometimes they become neural-crest-derived tumor cells and reveal the fact that that NCCs and tumor cells share the same molecular machinery. In this review we describe the routes taken by trunk NCCs and consider the signals and cues that pattern these trajectories. We also discuss recent

The tiny, speckled eggs of Japanese quail should be easy targets for hungry predators. But these quail have a survival advantage - each goes out of her way, research suggests, to choose a nesting location that best matches the particular color pattern of her eggs.
The statistical analysis was performed using the General Linear Model function of the SPSS (2007) Ver. 16.0.1 statistical package (SPSS Inc., Chigaco, IL, USA). The experimentation was based on a factorial model 2 x 2 (MOS x acidifier) or 2 x 2 x 2 (MOS x acidifier x sex). The one-way analysis of variance for the four experimental groups was performed. Also, the two-way analysis of variance and three-way analysis of variance (when applicable) were performed, using as main effects the inclusion of MOS in the feed (two levels), the inclusion of CPr in the feed (two levels) and the sex of the birds (two levels, when applicable). A value of P ,0.050 was considered significant. The Levenes test was applied to test the homogeneity of the variances. Tukeys test was applied to determine statistical differences between the means.. Results and Discussion. The effect of sex and dietary supplementation of MOS and CPr on the body weight is presented in Table 2. During the six weeks of the experimentation ...
By testing 25 putative regulatory links, we found that the early and late cranial-specific genes constitute different hierarchical levels of a gene regulatory network (Fig. 3J). Brn3c, which is placed at the top of the circuit, is necessary for the activation of Dmbx1 in the anterior neural plate border (Fig. 3I and fig. S3). Subsequently, Lhx5 and Dmbx1 drive expression of Tfap2b and Sox8 in the dorsal neural folds (Fig. 3, A to C, E to G, and I). Finally, Tfap2b activates expression of Ets1 as the neural crest becomes specified (Fig. 3, D, H, and I). Chromatin immunoprecipitation (ChIP) experiments performed in microdissected neural crest cells showed the association of the cranial-specific transcription factors with promoters of predicted downstream target genes, suggesting that these regulatory links are direct (Fig. 3K and fig. S4).. Sox8, Tfap2b, and Ets1 are all retained in the migrating cranial crest cells as they move ventrally to give rise to the facial mesenchyme during stages HH10 to ...

Luo Xun…This is the legendary quail egg?. Luo Xun, you still have quail eggs?!. Let me see! Even if it is smelly I want to…. Li Tie and the others stood in worship near the small quail eggs, each looked at one. The four people formed a semicircle around the table, sat down and leaned in to stare at the quail eggs in the center.. Luo Xun smiled as he took out several vegetables from his bag and put them in a basin. I domesticated and they started laying eggs. Some might be able to hatch, when they do I will send you a few..
