Euthanasia of laboratory mice: Are isoflurane and sevoflurane real alternatives to carbon dioxide?
The rise in catecholamine concentrations suggests that CO2 exposure might be linked to a higher stress response compared to isoflurane and sevoflirane exposure, although follow-up studies investigating other fast-acting stress hormones and central anxiety circuits are needed to confirm the findings.
Differing in vitro biology of equine, ovine, porcine and human articular chondrocytes derived from the knee joint: an immunomorphological study
Key features of cultured large animal and human articular chondrocytes of the knee joint differed substantially between these species, particularly with respect to proliferation and extracellular matrix synthesis.
Active Participation Instead of Passive Behaviour Opens Up New Vistas in Education of Veterinary Anatomy and Histology
Peer‐assisted learning (PAL) and student expert teams are introduced to the courses to give the students the possibility to improve their free speech and self‐confidence and to find their constant place in the veterinary medicine curricula.
Influence of age at weaning and feeding regimes on the postnatal morphology of the porcine small intestine
A causal relationship between reduced feed intake in the first days after weaning, independent of the diet, and the morphological alterations of the intestine is apparent.
Gross morphology and histology of the alimentary tract of the convict cichlid Amatitlania nigrofasciata.
The primary objectives of this study were to document the macroscopic and histological structure of the alimentary tract (AT) of the convict cichlid Amatitlania nigrofasciata, because there are no
Structure and age-dependent development of the turkey liver: a comparative study of a highly selected meat-type and a wild-type turkey line.
In this study the macroscopic and microscopic structure of the liver of a fast growing, meat-type turkey line (British United turkeys BUT Big 6, n=25) and a wild-type turkey line (Wild Canadian
Influence of a silicon (Si14)-based coating substrate for biomaterials on fibroblast growth and human C5a.
The tested silicon (Si14)-based coating substrate is suggested as a promising candidate for the coating of materials which are aimed to be used in cardiovascular tissue engineering approaches.
Heart ventricular histology and microvasculature together with aortic histology and elastic lamellar structure: A comparison of a novel dual-purpose to a broiler chicken line
The results suggest that the heart and aorta of theLD chickens have not been disadvantaged by their intensive genetic selection; furthermore, LD chickens have a better myocardial capillary supply and better aortic mechanical properties than those of Ross chickens.
