Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) are environmental pollutants that are quite toxic to biological systems. This study examined the inhibitory effect of PCB126 and PCB114 on testicular steroidogenesis in male rats. Male Sprague Dawley rats received weekly intraperitoneal injections of PCB126 (0.2 mg/kg) or PCB114 (20 mg/kg) or vehicle (corn oil). Animals from(More)
This study investigated the production of insoluble dietary fiber using exploded and chemically treated oak wood (Quercus mongolica) and the physiological functions of prepared insoluble dietary fiber in laboratory animals. To produce high quality insoluble dietary fiber, the steam explosion treatment was performed at 25 kgf/cm2 pressure for 6 minutes. In(More)
Polychlorinated biphenyls are environmental pollutants that are toxic to many biological systems. This study examined whether or not PCB126 and PCB114 have adverse effects on the serum thyroxine level and the serum proteome in rats. The results showed a lower serum total thyroxine level in the PCB126 and PCB114-treated groups than the control. Western(More)
Thirty male pigs were infected orally with E. coli and Salmonella typhimurium, and divided into a control group and two additive groups to determine the effect of an additive mixture on the changes in protein expression. The pigs were given a food supplemented with a natural herbal additive containing immunoglobulin yolksac (IgY) at concentrations of 0.5%(More)
