BACKGROUND Anthocyanins, which are found in high concentrations in fruit and vegetable, may play a beneficial role in retarding or reversing the course of chronic degenerative diseases. However, little is known about the biotransformation and the metabolism of anthocyanins so far. AIM OF THE STUDY The aim of the study was to investigate possible(More)
Chicks were fed a purified diet with 0, 100, 200, 300, 400, or 500 micrograms/kg diet of added biotin to determine the effects of biotin deficiency on polyunsaturated fatty acids in tissue lipids. Body weight was reduced by biotin deficiency and liver and heart biotin levels varied with the biotin in the diet. Fatty acids in liver and lung from(More)
Strains of host specific (KTM, 74/1, and 59) and nonhost specific (40) lactobacilli were orally dosed to day-old broiler chicks. Dose levels consisted of: 5.0, 7.0, and 9.0 log10 cfu/day for 21 days. Each treatment and control group (placebo, no culture) contained three replications of 6 chicks in Experiment 1 (strains 40 and KTM) and 7 chicks in Experiment(More)
Experiments were conducted to determine the effects of feeding diets low in protein, glycine, or tryptophan on iron metabolism in the growing chick. Three-day-old chicks, which were fed the experimental diets to 2 weeks of age, were given orally a solution of 59FeSO4 in order to determine the percentage of iron absorbed and excreted (determined by the fecal(More)
