1. Male and female broiler chickens of a pure line were selected over one generation for low or high plasma, cardiac-derived troponin T concentrations at 12 h of age. 2. Heritability of plasma troponin T was moderately high (h2 = 0.38 +/- 0.06), and there was no difference in mean body weights of parents (G0) of the 2 lines at 4 and 19 weeks of age. 3. This(More)
Troponin T, a cardiac-specific protein released only from damaged or injured heart tissue and cells, was measured in the sera from fowl chicks bled one, 12, 24, 48, 96 and 168 hours after hatching. A peak troponin T response was observed 12 hours after hatching in two experiments conducted six months apart. In the second experiment the heterophil/lymphocyte(More)
