Further evidence that prostaglandins inhibit the release of noradrenaline from adrenergic nerve terminals by restriction of availability of calcium. (1/17075)

1 Guinea-pig vasa deferentia were continuously superfused after labelling the transmitter stores with [3H](-)-noradrenaline. Release of [3H]-(-)-noradrenaline was induced by transmural nerve stimulation. 2 Prostglandin E2 (14 nM) drastically reduced the release of [3H]-(-)-noradrenaline, while tetraethylammonium (2 mM), rubidium (6 mM), phenoxybenzamine (3 muM) each in the presence or absence of Uptake 1 or 2 blockade, and prolonged pulse duration (from 0.5 to 2.0 ms) all significantly increased the release of [3H]-(-)-noradrenaline per nerve impulse. 3 The inhibitory effect of prostaglandin E2 on evoked release of [3H]-(-)-noradrenaline was significantly reduced by tetraethylammonium, rubidium and prolonged pulse duration, whilst it was actually enhanced by phenoxybenzamine. This indicates that increased release of noradrenaline per nerve impulse does not per se counteract the inhibitory effect of prostaglandin E2. 4 It is concluded that tetraethylammonium, rubidium and prolonged pulse duration counteracted the inhibitory effect of prostaglandin E2 on T3H]-(-)-noradrenaline release by promoting calcium influx during the nerve action potential. The results are consistent with, and add more weight to the view that prostaglandins inhibit the release of noradrenaline by restriction of calcium availability.  (+info)

A comparison of affinity constants for muscarine-sensitive acetylcholine receptors in guinea-pig atrial pacemaker cells at 29 degrees C and in ileum at 29 degrees C and 37 degrees C. (2/17075)

1 The affinity of 17 compounds for muscarine-sensitive acetylcholine receptors in atrial pacemaker cells and ileum of the guinea-pig has been measured at 29 degrees C in Ringer-Locke solution. Measurements were also made at 37 degrees C with 7 of them. 2 Some of the compounds had much higher affinity for the receptors in the ileum than for those in the atria. For the most selective compound, 4-diphenylacetoxy-N-methylpiperidine methiodide, the difference was approximately 20-fold. The receptors in the atria are therefore different the structure from those in the ileum. 3 The effect of temperature on affinity are not the same for all the compounds, tested indicating different enthalpies and entropies of adsorption and accounting for some of the difficulty experienced in predicting the affinity of new compounds.  (+info)

Fusariotoxicosis from barley in British Columbia. II. Analysis and toxicity of syspected barley. (3/17075)

Fusariotoxin T-2, a trichothecene, was tentatively identified in barley samples which caused field outbreaks of mycotoxicosis in British Columbia. Geese died when fed the contaminated barley experimentally but mice were little affected after long term feeding. The methods used in the laboratory for trichothecene extraction and identification of T-2 toxin are described.  (+info)

Automatic activity in depolarized guinea pig ventricular myocardium. Characteristics and mechanisms. (4/17075)

Membrane potential was changed uniformly in segments, 0.7-1.0 mm long, of guinea pig papillary muscles excised from the right ventricle by using extracellular polarizing current pulses applied across two electrically insulated cf preparations superfused with Tyrode's solution at maximum diastolic membrane potentials ranging from-35.2+/-7.5 (threshold) to +4.0+/-9.2 mV. The average maximum dV/dt of RAD ranged from 17.1 to 18.0 V/sec within a membrane potential range of -40 to +20 mV. Raising extracellular Ca2+ concentration [Ca2+]0 from 1.8 to 6.8 mM, or application of isoproterenol (10(-6)g/ml) enhanced the rate of RAD, but lowering [Ca2+]0 to 0.4 mM or exposure to MnCl2 (6 mM) abolished RAD. RAD were enhanced by lowering extracellular K+ concentration [K+]0 from 5.4 to 1.5 mM. RAD were suppressed in 40% of fibers by raising [K+]0 to 15.4 mM, and in all fibers by raising [K+]0 to 40.4 mM. This suppression was due to increased [K+]0 and not to K-induced depolarization because it persisted when membrane potential was held by means of a conditioning hyperpolarizing puled gradually after maximum repolarization. These observations suggest that the development of RAD in depolarized myocardium is associated with a time-dependent decrease in outward current (probably K current) and with increase in the background inward current, presumably flowing through the slow cha-nel carrying Ca or Na ions, or both.  (+info)

Perinatal nephropathies. (5/17075)

The purpose of this paper is to review the development of the mammalian kidney and to assess the influence that various perinatal manipulations may have on the developmental process either morphologically or functionally. Immature kidneys in general have less functional capacity than adult kidneys and a low rate of glomerular filtration, perhaps related to renal blood flow, which appears to limit the disposition of a fluid or solute load. Tubular reabsorption is also limited leading to the urinary loss of glucose, amino acids, bicarbonate and phosphate. Although the relatively low function of the immature kidney is a normal part of development, its capacity to respond under conditions of stress may be less adequate than in adults. An additional concern is that a variety of perinatal manipulations, such as the incidental or accidental ingestion of a chemical, may lead to varying degrees of altered morphogenesis or functional development of the kidney. Chemical induced renal anomalies may be of several types, but in typical teratology experiments hydronephrosis may be the most frequent observation. The functional consequences of these renal malformations may be lethal or inconsequential or while an animal may be able to survive and develop normally in the presence of a renal malformation, it is possible that a stressful situation would unmask a functional malformation which could compromise survival. Thus, some renal abnormalities may be subtle enough to go unnoticed without experimental tests. Without such tests it is impossible to evaluate the effect of functional alterations on successful adaptation.  (+info)

Activity in saline of phthalylated or succinylated derivatives of mycobacterial water-soluble adjuvant. (6/17075)

A water-soluble fraction (WSA) of the cell wall can substitute for mycobacterial cells in Freund complete adjuvant. However, when WSA is administered in saline instead of in a water-in-oil emulsion, its adjuvant activity is very weak, and under certain experimental conditions it can even inhibit the humoral immune response. The data reported in the present study show that after treatment by phthalic or succinic anhydride the adjuvant activity of WSA was markedly changed, since high levels of circulating antibodies were produced when these derivatives were administered with an antigen in an aqueous medium. Moreover, the antigenic determinants of WSA were modified and acylated WSA had no tuberculin-like activity.  (+info)

Bradykinin promotes ischemic norepinephrine release in guinea pig and human hearts. (7/17075)

We previously reported that bradykinin (BK; 1-1000 nM) facilitates norepinephrine (NE) release from cardiac sympathetic nerves. Because BK production increases in myocardial ischemia, endogenous BK could foster NE release and associated arrhythmias. We tested this hypothesis in guinea pig and human myocardial ischemia models. BK administration (100 nM) markedly enhanced exocytotic and carrier-mediated NE overflow from guinea pig hearts subjected to 10- and 20-min ischemia/reperfusion, respectively. Ventricular fibrillation invariably occurred after 20-min global ischemia; BK prolonged its duration 3-fold. The BK B2 receptor antagonist HOE140 (30 nM) blocked the effects of BK, whereas the B1 receptor antagonist des-Arg9-Leu8-BK (1 microM; i.e., 2.5 x pA2) did not. When serine proteinase inhibitors (500 KIU/ml aprotinin and 100 microg/ml soybean trypsin inhibitor) were used to prevent the formation of endogenous BK, NE overflow and reperfusion arrhythmias were diminished. In contrast, when kininase I and II inhibitors (DL-2-mercaptomethyl-3-guanidinoethylthiopropanoic acid and enalaprilat, each 1 microM) were used to prevent the degradation of endogenous BK, NE overflow and reperfusion arrhythmias were enhanced. B2 receptor blockade abolished these effects but was ineffective if kininases were not inhibited. B2 receptor stimulation, by either exogenous or endogenous BK, also markedly enhanced carrier-mediated NE release in the human myocardial ischemia model; conversely, inhibition of BK biosynthesis diminished ischemic NE release. Because atherosclerotic heart disease impairs endothelial BK production, in myocardial ischemia BK could accumulate at sympathetic nerve endings, thus augmenting exocytotic and carrier-mediated NE release and favoring coronary vasoconstriction and arrhythmias.  (+info)

Comparison of functional antagonism between isoproterenol and M2 muscarinic receptors in guinea pig ileum and trachea. (8/17075)

The ability of the M2 muscarinic receptor to mediate an inhibition of the relaxant effects of forskolin and isoproterenol was investigated in guinea pig ileum and trachea. In some experiments, trachea was first treated with 4-diphenylacetoxy-N-methylpiperidine (4-DAMP) mustard to inactivate M3 receptors. The contractile response to oxotremorine-M was measured subsequently in the presence of both histamine (10 microM) and isoproterenol (10 nM). Under these conditions, [[2-[(diethylamino)methyl]-1-piperidinyl]acetyl]-5, 11-dihydro-6H-pyrido[2,3b]-[1,4]benzodiazepine-6-one (AF-DX 116) antagonized the contractile response to oxotremorine-M in a manner consistent with an M3 mechanism. However, when the same experiment was repeated using forskolin (4 microM) instead of isoproterenol, the response to oxotremorine-M exhibited greater potency and was antagonized by AF-DX 116 in a manner consistent with an M2 mechanism. We also measured the effects of pertussis toxin treatment on the ability of isoproterenol to inhibit the contraction elicited by a single concentration of either histamine (0.3 microM) or oxotremorine-M (40 nM) in both the ileum and trachea. Pertussis toxin treatment had no significant effect on the potency of isoproterenol for inhibiting histamine-induced contractions in the ileum and trachea. In contrast, pertussis toxin treatment enhanced the relaxant potency of isoproterenol against oxotremorine-M-induced contractions in the ileum but not in the trachea. Also, pertussis toxin treatment enhanced the relaxant potency of forskolin against oxotremorine-M-induced contractions in the ileum and trachea. We investigated the relaxant potency of isoproterenol when very low, equi-effective (i.e., 20-34% of maximal response) concentrations of either histamine or oxotremorine-M were used to elicit contraction. Under these conditions, isoproterenol exhibited greater relaxant potency against histamine in the ileum but exhibited similar relaxant potencies against histamine and oxotremorine-M in the trachea. Following 4-DAMP mustard treatment, a low concentration of oxotremorine-M (10 nM) had no contractile effect in either the ileum or trachea. Nevertheless, in 4-DAMP mustard-treated tissue, oxotremorine-M (10 nM) reduced the relaxant potency of isoproterenol against histamine-induced contractions in the ileum, but not in the trachea. We conclude that in the trachea the M2 receptor mediates an inhibition of the relaxant effects of forskolin, but not isoproterenol, and the decreased relaxant potency of isoproterenol against contractions elicited by a muscarinic agonist relative to histamine is not due to activation of M2 receptors but rather to the greater contractile stimulus mediated by the M3 receptor compared with the H1 histamine receptor.  (+info)

Q: Ive not too long ago adopted one feminine and two male guinea pigs. They are throughout 2 months outdated. Im ready for the boys to be the best weight to have them fastened. Im too scared to have the feminine fastened in case she is already pregnant. Once the males are fastened, will they depart my little feminine alone? They at the moment comply with her far and wide. I wish to add one other feminine to the group as soon as the boys are fastened, however I dont need to do this if its going to trigger fights. They have greater than sufficient room to roam and play of their two-level, split-level home with loads of hidey-holes.. A: Having a male guinea pig fastened is not going to change his pure propensity to need to mate with the feminine. It will solely insure that there isnt any conception after the act. In the scenario you describe, having just one feminine who will cycle each 17 days means she is not going to solely have the undesirable advances of 1 male, however she might be ...
A total of 20 healthy adult male guinea pigs were used in this study to investigate the anatomical, histological and morphometrical characteristics of the kidneys, ureter and urinary bladder. The gross anatomical study showed that the right kidney had a bean shape with reddish pink color whereas the left kidney had a heart shape. The renal cortex appeared darker than medulla with reddish brown color, while the medulla was pale in color. The mean thickness of cortex was more than that of medulla in both left and right kidneys and the ratio of cortex to medulla was 1.06: 1 in both kidneys. The mean length of right ureter was 10.3±0.62 cm while the mean length of left ureter was shorter. The filled urinary bladder appeared as a pear-shaped hollow sac situated in the pelvic cavity and only the rounded cranial part of bladder was expanded. Four histological regions of renal tubules were found in kidney. The Proximal convolutes tubule is first longest and coiled segment of renal tubules which originate from

They are very social animals and can live with other guinea pigs. Male guinea pigs should not be housed together. If aggression is noticed, you need to separate your pigs right away. You may notice them engaging in barbering (chewing on each others hair); this is normally not an aggressive behavior. It can be caused by many things, such as boredom, excitement, or dietary deficiencies.. When housing multiple guinea pigs, the cage needs to be large enough for food dishes, toys, and still allow room for them to move around. The cage for a single guinea pig should be at least 24inch w X 18inch h. The cage should have a wire top and sides with a solid base; wire flooring can cause irritation to their feet. Wire sides allows plenty of airflow and ventilation in the cage. Guinea pigs should be housed where there are no drafts, chills, excessive heat, or sudden temperature changes. The base of the cage should be three inches high to keep the bedding in, yet still allows the pig to see whats going on ...
Fig. 3. Development of stable STZ-induced diabetes requires coexisting diet-induced impaired glucose tolerance. (A) Diagrammatic representation of optimized STZ treatment to induce hyperglycemia in guinea pigs fed either normal or HFHC diet. STZ powder is dissolved in citrate buffer at 100 mg/ml, then incubated for 2 h to allow for α/β anomer equilibration. Twenty minutes before STZ treatment, guinea pigs are administered a 0.5 mg/kg dose of the α2 agonist yohimbine, by the intramuscular (IM) route. Guinea pigs are then given a single 200 mg/kg subcutaneous (SC) injection of anomer-equilibrated STZ. Diabetic hyperglycemia is determined by an oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) at day 7, 14 and 21, based on a 2 h blood glucose ≥200 mg/dl.

1- Where can i get or own a guinea pig? Any advices? Although there are lots of helpful information about guinea pigs in our site, there isnt any selling or adoption announcement. Our first advice about it is following adoption announcements from social media platforms. Second is finding a breeding ranch of guinea pigs.. Your last choice must be pet shops. Reason why; not all of them but the majority of pet shops are selling unhealthy miserable baby guinea pigs. On the other hand, if they keep together males and females, the guinea pig youre going to buy could be pregnant. Guinea pigs can get pregnant after 28 days of born. So your guinea pig could give a too soon unhealthy birth.. Sometimes we share adoption announcements which are coming from our followers, via our social media accounts. To check these announcements you can follow us on social media. To find us on social media, you can use social media icons in our website. ...
The Guinea pig maximisation test (GPMT) is an in vivo test to screen for substances that cause human skin sensitisation (i.e. allergens). It was first proposed by B. Magnusson and Albert Kligman in 1969 and described in their 1970 book Allergic Contact Dermatitis in the Guinea Pig The test animals are exposed intradermally to the test material, along with an adjuvant to enhance the immune reaction of the guinea pig. The guinea pigs are then a short while later exposed to a lower concentration of the test material, and their allergic reaction, if any, measured. 15% of guinea pigs must show a reaction for the test to be considered positive. 20 animals would typically be used to ensure against false negative results. The OECD Guidelines for the Testing of Chemicals guideline No. 406 of 1992. The test has been largely superseded by the murine local lymph node assay. D.A. Basketter and E.W.

The incorporation of 32Pi into phospholamban, troponin I, phosphatidylinositols, and inositol trisphosphates was studied in Langendorff-perfused guinea pig hearts stimulated with isoproterenol. Hearts were perfused with Krebs-Henseleit buffer containing [32P]Pk and freeze-clamped at different times during the positive inotropic response. Exposure of the hearts to 0.1 microM isoproterenol for up to 1 minute was associated with significant (up to threefold) increases in phospholamban and troponin I phosphorylation, but there was no significant increase in 32P incorporation into phospholipids. However, longer exposure (2 minutes or more) to isoproterenol was associated with increases in the degree of 32P labeling of phosphatidylinositols and phosphatidic acid. Examination of 32P labeling of inositol trisphosphates in the same hearts revealed that the radioactivity associated with these compounds decreased with time. The decreases were significant at times of exposure of 2 minutes or longer to ...
Although there are a lot of guinea pig illnesses, guinea pigs are more likely to suffer from some issues than others, so its advisable to be on the lookout for bloat, bladder stones, cysts, uterine, tooth, foot or scent gland problems, stained urine and parasites. You can read more about all of these problems via the link above, but as there are so many potential illnesses its a good idea to have a good guinea pig illness encyclopaedia too.. ...
Copyright by Jeannette Gardner (March, 2012). I never really knew how smart guinea pigs are, and that they can actually have you wrapped around their little finger by their cute demands. We adopted two guinea pigs, mother and daughter of 1 and 3 years old in October of 2011. After buying a house, we wanted to get a pet, and decided against getting a dog for now. Instead, we are proud parents of two loveable guinea pigs, Harmony and Melody. Hey, you dont have to walk them at all hours of the day or evening! Our two adorable piggies have out smarted us in a lot of funny but very cute ways. They know our schedules for eating, and by this what amazes me is that they know of the exact timing of different hours for our meals, and for them to get their pellets and their treats. Im normally the first one up, get the coffee on and check up on our guinea pigs. Its really funny to watch them at that time as they are both standing up on their little front legs on their empty bowl looking at me, and ...

Loud bangs and whistles can cause guinea pigs a great deal of stress. Help your pet to cope with fireworks from Bonfire Night all the way through to New Years Eve with these handy tips…. Give your guinea pig lots of extra bedding so they can burrow down in it and get cosy. You could put a cardboard box full of hay in their hutch to give them an extra place to shelter in safety. Remember to cut holes in boxes for easy access and exit.. Bring your guinea pigs hutch or cage indoors. A quiet room is best, but an unused garage or shed is a good alternative if you cant bring them into your house.. If you cant bring your pets inside, turn their enclosure around so it faces a wall or fence instead of the open garden. This will help to stifle the sound and prevent them from seeing the flashes of light. Cover their hutch with thick blankets or a duvet to block out the sound of the bangs and the sight of the fireworks, but make sure your pet still has enough ventilation.. If your guinea pigs usually ...
When the autumn time comes, the most beautiful things in nature are the leaves! When leaves fall from the trees, everything around is painted with the gorgeous natural colors; yellow, red, orange, brown, crimson. Have you ever wondered if leaves are edible for some animals? Or maybe which tree leaves? In this article we will discuss whether guinea pigs can eat leaves, so please keep on reading.. Can guinea pigs eat leaves? Yes, guinea pigs can eat leaves but only certain types. This means they can eat leaves only from certain trees and branches. If you cannot identify the tree, it is best to avoid feeding the guinea pig an unidentified leaf. There are safe trees which can give the cavy some leaves to munch on. The most common leaves they can chew on are from the fruit trees. They can have apple, pear, willow, citrus tree, banana leaves, sunflower leaves pumpkin, mango, raspberry, grape, outer leaves of corn, cauliflower leaves, and mulberry too. Also, they can even have certain branches, such as ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Signal requirements for lymphocyte activation. T2 - Role of a T-cell growth factor produced by guinea pig peritoneal exudate lymphocytes. AU - Weinblatt, Anita Corman. AU - Oppenheim, Joost J.. AU - Rosenstreich, David L.. PY - 1982/4. Y1 - 1982/4. N2 - Peritoneal exudate lymphocytes (PEL) from immunized guinea pigs, when pulsed with antigen, rapidly release a T-cell stimulatory factor (TSF). TSF nonspecifically enhances the proliferation of purified guinea pig T cells in the presence of another signal such as PMA, PHA, or Con A. On a per cell basis, antigen-pulsed PEL produce about 14 times more activity than similarly stimulated lymph node lymphocytes. Several lines of evidence support the view that TSF is the guinea pig equivalent of TCGF (IL-2). TSF containing supernatants have IL-2 activity when assayed on the IL-2-dependent CT6 cell line. When TSF containing supernatants were absorbed with CT6 cells, there was a significant decrease of both TSF activity as assessed on ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Dynamic mammalian cardiogenesis investigated by high-resolution ultrasound in guinea pigs. AU - Loeber, C.. AU - Goldberg, S. J.. AU - Hendrix, M. J.C.. AU - Sahn, D. J.. PY - 1983. Y1 - 1983. N2 - Ultrasonic cardiac imaging of human fetuses has been feasible only after 12 to 14 weeks gestation when the heart is completely formed. The authors purpose was to develop a method of examining dynamic mammalian cardiogenesis with a high-resolution 9 MHz ultrasound scanner. Fetal guinea pig hearts were imaged in utero over the course of 10 days. All images were obtained after blastocyst implantation estimated to occur 8 days after fertilization with cardiogenesis occurring over the next 14 days. After laparotomies were performed on the gravid guinea pigs, sterile transducers were placed on their uterine horns and ultrasonic images were obtained. Further optical magnification of videotaped images was required to visualize cardiac details. Ten gravid guinea pigs were examined and 3 of 10 ...

N2 - Scanning microscopy was used to examine guinea pig cochleas for structural damage immediately after exposure to a pure tone ranging from 96 to 129 dB SPL. Functional changes to the cochlear neural sensitivity were assessed using the N1 audiogram. Principal findings were: (1) The order of damge to receptor cells with increasing sound intensity was OHC1, then IHC, then OHC2 and OHC3. (2) The spatial distribution of damage to OHC1 and IHC differed with IHC tending to show damage mainly in the vicinity of the exposure frequency location and OHC1 damage spreading basalward of this point. (3) N1 threshold losses spread progressively to lower frequencies as exposure intensity increased. This was accompanied by an apical spread of damage to the receptor cells.. AB - Scanning microscopy was used to ...
Guinea pig The guinea pig (Cavia porcellus), also called the cavy, is a species of rodent belonging to the family Caviidae and the genus Cavia. Despite their common name, these animals are not in the pig family, nor are they from Guinea. They originated in the Andes, and earlier studies based on biochemistry and hybridization…
Aftercontractions, delayed afterdepolarizations, and automaticity occurred in guinea pig papillary muscles that were reoxygenated after hypoxic conditioning. The emergence of dysfunction was dependent on the severity of hypoxic conditioning and on stimulation during reoxygenation. After 60 minutes of substrate-free hypoxia, reoxygenation induced automaticity in a high proportion of stimulated muscles; the automaticity appeared within 1 minute and lasted for 10-20 minutes. After similar conditioning, muscles reoxygenated for 7-15 minutes were stimulated at various cycle lengths. The incidence of automaticity and the amplitudes of delayed events had W-shaped dependencies on cycle length (200-1,000 msec), whereas coupling intervals had M-shaped dependencies. In ventricular myocytes that displayed automaticity after reoxygenation, extrasystolic upstrokes arose smoothly from delayed afterdepolarizations that reached threshold. In tissue, extrasystolic upstrokes usually rose sharply from delayed ...
The in vitro activities and interactions of macrophages and lymphocytes from tuberculin-sensitive and normal guinea pigs, in the presence or absence of antigen (PPD), were examined with the aid of phase-contrast time-lapse cinematography. Macrophages from peritoneal exudate had active amoeboid motion and numerous rapidly extending pseudopodia. Macrophages from normal or sensitized animals, in the presence of antigen and sensitized lymphocytes, and to a lesser extent sensitized thymocytes, formed considerably less active and less numerous pseudopodia, became spherical and were more sluggish in their movements. The motion of lymphocytes and thymocytes, normal or sensitized, was not affected by specific antigen. Non-sensitized macrophages aggregated and tended to become associated with lymphocytes in the presence of antigen and sensitized lymphocytes. These in vitro observations provided direct evidence of immunologically induced cellular interactions in delayed hypersensitivity systems.. ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Spatial heterogeneity of transmembrane potential responses of single guinea-pig cardiac cells during electric field stimulation. AU - Sharma, Vinod. AU - Tung, Leslie. PY - 2002/7/15. Y1 - 2002/7/15. N2 - Changes in transmembrane voltage (Vm) of cardiac cells during electric field stimulation have a complex spatial- and time-dependent behaviour that differs significantly from electrical stimulation of space-clamped membranes by current pulses. A multisite optical mapping system was used to obtain 17 or 25 μm resolution maps of Vm along the long axis of guinea-pig ventricular cells (n = 57) stained with voltage-sensitive dye (di-8-ANEPPS) and stimulated longitudinally with uniform electric field (2, 5 or 10 ms, 3-62 V cm-1) pulses (n = 201). The initial polarizations of Vm responses (Vmr) varied linearly along the cell length and reversed symmetrically upon field reversal. The remainder of the Vm responses had parallel time courses among the recording sites, revealing a common ...
Unlike many other pets, such as dogs, cats, or rabbits, guinea pigs typically need minimal grooming and are fairly simple to care for. Most guinea pig owners find that with a little training, they can learn to groom their pets at home.
To determine whether guinea pigs are infected with influenza virus in nature, we conducted a serologic study in domestic guinea pigs in Ecuador. Detection of antibodies against influenza A and B raises the question about the role of guinea pigs in the ecology and epidemiology of influenza virus in the region.
Incubation in vitro of the intestine of the hamster and guinea pig with 5 mM sodium cholate and with 2 mM sodium deoxycholate and sodium chenodeoxycholate resulted in significant morphological changes compared with control incubations. Generally, no major differences were observed between proximal and distal small intestine or between the species used. Only when guinea pig intestine was incubated with 5 mM cholate was less damage found proximally than distally.. Perfusion in vivo of the intestine of the hamster and guinea pig with Krebs-Ringer phosphate results in separation of the epithelium from the lamina propria without excessive shedding of epithelial cells from villous tips. This change was also seen in specimens taken before perfusion and probably represents unavoidable trauma during handling of the intestine.. In contrast to studies in vitro, regional differences are readily demonstrable with perfusion of bile salts in vivo. Dihydroxy bile salts produce more marked alterations of both ...
Results of Western blot analysis carried out with an interstitial cell extract from male guinea pig and ovarian extract from immature female rats administered equine chorionic gonadotropin (eCG) provide supportive evidence to our earlier suggestion that an 8-kDa peptide is involved in acquisition of steroidogenic capacity by the rat Leydig cells. It was found that though the signal was observed in other tissues such as liver, kidney and lung which do not produce gonadal hormones, the peptide was modulated only by lutenizing hormone (LH) in the rat Leydig cells.. ...

Guinea pigs can sometimes expel air from their nose and sneeze as we do. This will sound very high-pitched, but is unmistakably a sneeze. Its not usually something to be concerned about, as its usually the result of dust - many guinea pigs will sneeze when they receive hay (but try to get the least dusty hay possible to try to prevent respiratory tract infections). If your guinea pig is sneezing a lot, then it may be cause for concern, as it could be indicative of an infection or an allergy.. ...
This is different to all my other books and definitely makes me want to read on! It has brilliant characters - Coco is funny because she is so posh and says she lives with the Queen!. Sophia, age 7. I liked this book when at the end Eduardo and Coco fall in love and scooter away. I love guinea pigs and I have 4 of my own so really enjoyed this story. This book had lots of funny bits in it. Banoffee had lots of babies. I liked it when Terry helped Coco on the internet find out where Meat Cleaver is. I would love it if my guinea pigs did all this when I was at school. My favourite guinea pig character was Coco as she was a princess. My favourite person was Henrietta because she was Cocos owner. Fuzzy likes the internet and Coco does not I wonder why?

The kidney of guinea pigs infected with the H37Rv and BCG strains of M. tuberculosis showed a diminution in succinic dehydrogenase activity when measured by the tetrazolium technique. This effect was also seen in the liver and spleen of animals infected with the BCG strain. Sensitized animals showed similar results when given tuberculin in sublethal doses. The succinic oxidase was also low in the kidneys of animals infected with the H37Rv strain.. The depressed enzyme activity of the tissues of infected animals could be restored to normal by addition of normal tissue extract or dialysate. This suggests that the alteration in tissue metabolism observed in tuberculosis may depend upon the loss of some as yet unidentified factor important for succinic dehydrogenase activity.. ...

Abstract. To increase availability of animal proteins in Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Cavia porcellus was recently enrolled in a breeding program that includes base populations from DRC and Belgium. To preserve whole or part of the sources genetic diversity over breeding cycles, cognizance of genetic diversity in natural populations is required. We tested the cross-amplification of eleven pairs of microsatellite primers that were isolated from Cavia aperea and C. magnea. Amplification tests by polymerase chain reaction were performed on total DNA of 30 C. porcellus using 11 microsatellite loci. All the microsatellites amplified at the expected size and were polymorphic for C. porcellus. Using these microsatellite loci, we ...

If you do decide to go with disposable guinea ped bedding, there is absolutely no doubt you should choose paper-based bedding and not wood-based bedding.. Some people use shredded newspaper as bedding, but it doesnt absorb liquid or odors much at all. If you dont clean the cage frequently, you could get quite a nasty mess.. Paper bedding is a go-to choice for many guinea pig owners. It is because it is soft, absorbent, and good at odor control. The trouble is, even though different paper bedding brands are essentially made out of the same material, they come in varying qualities and types. This makes it hard for pet parents to figure out which product is most ideal.. Aspen bedding.

Im looking for someone who wants to test-drive a new Alice in Wonderland pattern later this month. Please comment in the Flickr group if you are interested. You may wonder why I dont try it out myself. First of all Ive got many things going on and if I felt like I have to embroider, it would almost feel like work and the whole embroidery-experience would not be so relaxing anymore. The other thing is that often Ive been drawing and re-drawing a pattern many times so I appreciate someone else taking a look at it and trying it out. Oh and please dont be sad if I dont pick you now, Ive got heaps of ideas for upcoming patterns so new guinea pigs are needed in the future ...
The tea made with leaves and stems of plant Anchietia salutaris is traditionally used in Brazil to treat allergies. We examined the effects of a crude aqueous extract and of purified fractions of this plant on the histamine release induced in rat and guinea pig tissues. The crude extract (3-10 mu g/ml) inhibits the histamine release induced by compound 48/80 (0.5 mu g/ml) and antigen in rat peritoneal mast cells. The inhibition is significant after 10 s of preincubation and is completed after 3 min. The crude extract dissolved in the perfusion fluid (1-30 mu g/ml) also inhibits the histamine release induced in guinea pig heart by cardiac anaphylaxis and in hearts from pretreated animals (10-100 mg/kg i.p.). In pretreated animals, the effect manifests after 3 h, is maximum after 12 h and disappears after 48 h. The histamine release induced in isolated guinea pig heart by ionophore A23187 is inhibited by similar doses as in antigen-induced histamine release. Extraction with solvents concentrated ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Immunological regulation of synaptic transmission in isolated guinea pig autonomic ganglia. AU - Weinreich, D.. AU - Undem, Bradley J. PY - 1987. Y1 - 1987. N2 - We have attempted to identify a role for mast cells in autonomic ganglia by examining the effects of antigen challenge on mast cell-associated mediator release and synaptic transmission through the superior cervical ganglion isolated from ovalbumin-sensitized guinea pigs. Ovalbumin induced the release of 7.9 ng of histamine, 40 pg of immunoreactive sulfidopeptide-leukotriene, and 140 pg of immunoreactive-PgD2 per ganglion. Ovalbumin produced long-lasting potentiation (51 ± 4%, mean ± SEM, n = 66) of synaptic transmission, the protracted nature of which could not be mimicked by exogenous histamine (10-5 M). Selective histamine H1 antagonists inhibited the antigen-induced potentiation, but did not reverse it when added any time after antigen exposure. These results indicate that immunologic activation of mast cells can ...
Several agents can decrease or increase currents through ion channels, depending on the voltage clamp protocols. This is the case for the dihydropyridine Ca channel antagonists/agonists (Hess et al., 1984). For K channels, several such cases have been described. These include the effects of almokalant on the rapid component of delayed rectifier (IKr) K channels in rabbit ventricular myocytes (Carmeliet, 1993), azimilide (AZ) on the slow component of delayed rectifier channels in guinea pig cardiac myocytes (Davies et al., 1996), and quinidine on Kv1.2 expressed inXenopus oocytes (Tseng et al., 1996). The agonist effects (increasing current amplitudes) of all these K channel drugs manifest one common feature: they are associated with a hyperpolarizing shift in the voltage dependence of channel activation, suggesting that drug-induced modifications of channels gating processes may be involved. This is supported by the observations that the agonist effect of quinidine on Kv1.2 is accompanied by a ...
