Corneal avascularity is due to soluble VEGF receptor-1
TLDR
It is shown that the cornea expresses soluble VEGF receptor-1 (sVEGFR-1; also known as sflt-1) and that suppression of this endogenous V EGF-A trap by neutralizing antibodies, RNA interference or Cre-lox-mediated gene disruption abolishes corneal avascularity in mice.
Comparative morphology of the tapetum lucidum (among selected species).
TLDR
The tapetum lucidum represents a remarkable example of neural cell and tissue specialization as an adaptation to a dim light environment and, despite these differences, all tapetal variants act to increase retinal sensitivity by reflecting light back through the photoreceptor layer.
Glutamine regulates Caco-2 cell tight junction proteins.
TLDR
Findings indicate that TJ protein expression and cellular localization in Caco-2 cell monolayers rely on GLN, and this mechanism may similarly relate to GLN-mediated modulation of intestinal barrier function in stressed animals and humans.

Responsive transporter genes within the murine intestinal-pancreatic axis form a basis of zinc homeostasis.
TLDR
The results show that Zn transporter expression in the intestinal-pancreatic axis is a component of the homeostatic regulation of this micronutrient.
Conjunctival fungal flora in horses, cattle, dogs, and cats.
TLDR
Conjunctival swab specimens were obtained from both eyes of 43 horses, 25 cows, 50 dogs, and 25 cats without keratitis or other ophthalmologic problems and 28 species from 209 isolants were identified.
Local fundus response to blue (LED and laser) and infrared (LED and laser) sources.
TLDR
Nonparametric statistical analysis of the scores from the two samples support the conclusion that there is no difference in the consequences of LED and laser light exposures under these matched conditions.
Unravelling the skin barrier: a new paradigm for atopic dermatitis and house dust mites.
TLDR
It is proposed that the paradigm of canine AD as primarily due to immunologic aberration ('inside/outside') should be shifted to include a primary defect in barrier function ('outside/inside').
Glutamine decreases lipopolysaccharide-induced intestinal inflammation in infant rats.
TLDR
Results indicate that Gln decreases the LPS-induced inflammatory response in infant rat intestine under different conditions of protein intake.
Microanatomy of Facial Vibrissae in the Florida Manatee: The Basis for Specialized Sensory Function and Oripulation
TLDR
The present data suggest that perioral bristles in manatees might have a tactile sensory role much like that of vibrissae in other mammals, in addition to their documented role in grasping of plants during feeding.
