The present study examined the ontogeny of mitochondrial protein abundance in adipose tissue and lungs over the first month of life in the sheep and the extent to which this may be altered by maternal undernutrition during the final month of gestation. The ontogeny of uncoupling protein (UCP), voltage-dependent anion channel (VDAC) and cytochrome c(More)
Although body condition score was not significantly different between light (<55 kg, n = 6) and heavy (> or =60 kg, n = 7) ewes at mating, it declined between Day 30 and Day 90 of gestation in light but not heavy ewes, and remained lower up to term. All ewes bore twins, delivered near term (Days 144-146) by Caesarean section. One lamb was immediately placed(More)
This study investigated the developmental and nutritional programming of uncoupling protein-2 (UCP2), glucocorticoid receptor (GR) and 11beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type 1 (11betaHSD1) mRNA in the sheep lung from the time of uterine attachment to 6 months of age. The effect of maternal nutrient restriction on lung development was determined in early(More)
This study investigated the developmental and nutritional programming of two important mitochondrial proteins, namely voltage-dependent anion channel (VDAC) and cytochrome c, in the sheep kidney, liver and lung. The effect of maternal nutrient restriction between early and mid-gestation (i.e. 28- to 80-day gestation, the period of maximal placental growth)(More)
Adaptation to the extrauterine environment at birth relies upon the onset of postnatal function and increased metabolism in the lungs, liver and kidney, mediated partly by activation of mitochondrial proteins such as the voltage-dependent anion channel (VDAC), cytochrome c and, in the lung only, uncoupling protein (UCP)2. The magnitude of adaptation is(More)
BACKGROUND There is a growing concern about childhood sarcomas, with recent studies suggesting an increase in the frequency of childhood sarcomas in sub-Saharan Africa. This study was carried out to determine the pattern of childhood sarcomas in Jos, North Central Nigeria and to compare the data obtained with other previous related studies. METHODS Review(More)
This experimental study was conducted to document the clinicopathologic features observed in Japanese quails inoculated with P. multocida serotypes A: 1, 3 and 4. Thirty 6-week-old Japanese quails (male and female) were divided into five groups (A, B, C, D and E) of 6 quails each. Groups A, B, C and D were further sub-divided into three sub-groups, with(More)
This study was conducted to isolate and study the phenotypic characteristics Pasteurella multocida organism recovered from commercial chicken with cases of fowl cholera in Jos, Nigeria. A total of 2000 samples consisting of bone marrow, heart, liver, lung and spleen (400 each) were collected from 400 clinically sick chickens for the isolation of P.(More)
