Production of germline chimeras by transfer of chicken gonadal primordial germ cells maintained in vitro for an extended period.
It is demonstrated that gPGCs maintained in vitro for an extended period could retain their specific characteristics for up to 2 months in vitro, resulting in the birth of germline chimeras following transfer to recipient embryos. Expand
Improved Germline Transmission in Chicken Chimeras Produced by Transplantation of Gonadal Primordial Germ Cells into Recipient Embryos1
Improved germline transmission of more than a 45% transmission rate was found in chicken chimeras produced by transfer of 10-day-cultured gPGCs being separated without Ficoll treatment. Expand
Black soybean anthocyanins inhibit adipocyte differentiation in 3T3-L1 cells.
The results suggest that black soybean anthocyanins inhibit adipocyte differentiation and basal lipolysis, which may contribute to their antiobesity and antidiabetic properties. Expand
A Testis-Mediated Germline Chimera Production Based on Transfer of Chicken Testicular Cells Directly into Heterologous Testes1
It may be possible to develop the testis-mediated germline chimera production technique, which extends the feasibility of genetic manipulations in avian species. Expand
Phytic acid and myo-inositol support adipocyte differentiation and improve insulin sensitivity in 3T3-L1 cells.
It is suggested that phytic acid and myo-inositol increase insulin sensitivity in adipocytes by increasing lipid storage capacity, improving glucose uptake, and inhibiting lipolysis. Expand

  • 1 December 2005
Proteome map of gonadal primordial germ cells (gPGCs) from chicken embryonic gonads is constructed to examine the mechanism of embryonic germ cell development and will serve as an important reference for germ cell biology and transgenic research. Expand
Gene expression profiling of chicken primordial germ cell ESTs
The results in this study contribute to knowledge of mining novel transcripts and genes involved in germline cell proliferation and differentiation at the early embryonic stages by investigating a large-scale expressed sequence tag analysis in chicken PGCs. Expand
Predictive factors that influence the survival rates in liver cirrhosis patients with spontaneous bacterial peritonitis
HCC, higher serum bilirubin levels, a prolonged serum prothrombin time, renal dysfunction, and lower ascitic glucose levels are associated with higher mortality rates in cirrhotic patients with SBP. Expand
Risk Factors for Delayed Post-Polypectomy Bleeding
Although delayed PPB is a rare event, more caution is needed during colonoscopic polypectomies performed in patients with high BMI or large polyps, pedunculatedpolyps, or polyps located in the right hemicolon. Expand
Characterization and Application of Oviductal Epithelial Cells In Vitro in Gallus domesticus1
The potential of cultured OECs as a model system for providing a better understanding of the regulation of gene expression and for the production of an avian transgenic bioreactor is demonstrated. Expand
