Toxification and detoxification of plant com- pounds by ruminants: an overview
Improved usage of rangelnnds for livestock production requires better ways to reduce losses caused by poisonous plants, such as management practices to minimize ingestion and treatments to improveExpand
Characterization of xenobiotic biotransformation in hepatic, renal and gut tissues of cattle and sheep.
TLDR
Sheep and cattle differ widely in hepatic and non-hepatic capacities for biotransforming certain xenobiotics, but, in both species, non- hepatic tissue exhibited considerable capacities for metabolizing certain substrates. Expand
Effects of long-term consumption of sewage solids on blood, milk and tissue elemental composition of breeding ewes.
TLDR
Fine-wool ewes received for 2 yr a complete pelleted basal diet or the basal diet fortified with 3.5% cottonseed meal or gamma-irradiated dried solids from primary (undigested) sewage to determine Ag, Ca, Cd, Co, Cr, Cu, Fe, K, Mg, Mn, Na, Ni, P, Pb and Zn in blood, milk and tissues. Expand
Digestibility of forages in vitro as affected by content of "silica".
Altered metabolic hormones, impaired nitrogen retention, and hepatotoxicosis in lambs fed Kochia scoparia hay.
TLDR
Early changes in serum enzymes reflected mild hepatotoxicosis without cholestasis, whereas histopathology (at 80 d) showed diffuse hepatocyte swelling and nephrosis. Expand
Effects of metoclopramide on steers fed Kochia scoparia hay.
Kochia hay that had elicited mild toxicosis in sheep and cattle when fed for 21 d was fed to young, growing steers to evaluate the efficacy of metoclopramide for preventing kochia toxicosis. TwelveExpand
Oxidative and conjugative metabolism of xenobiotics by livers of cattle, sheep, swine and rats.
TLDR
Results show that hepatic enzymatic capabilities toward xenobiotics do not parallel phylogenetic classifications, thus strengthening the view that most of the comparative data available at present is more descriptive than predictive of relationships among species. Expand
BIOTRANSFORMATIONS OF XENOBIOTICS IN TISSUES OF CATTLE AND SHEEP
Cytochrome P-450 and activities of mixed-function oxidase, epoxide hydrolase, glutathione S-transferase and UDP-glucuronosyltransferase were measured in liver, kidney and ileal tissue of cattle andExpand
