Expression of a functional human complement inhibitor in a transgenic pig as a model for the prevention of xenogeneic hyperacute organ rejection.
TLDR
A strategy for developing a pig-to-primate xenogeneic transplantation model to test whether the expression of a human complement inhibitor in transgenic pigs could render Xenogeneic organs resistant to hyperacute rejection is demonstrated. Expand
Laboratory evaluation of biotic and abiotic factors that may influence larvicidal activity of Bacillus thuringiensis serovar. israelensis against two Florida mosquito species.
TLDR
A technical powder of Bacillus thuringiensis serovar, an aqueous suspension, and a granular formulation were tested in the laboratory under different biotic and abiotic, conditions for efficacy against larvae of saltwater (Aedes taeniorhynchus) and freshwater mosquitoes. Expand
Genetic diversity and population structure of the endangered marsupial Sarcophilus harrisii (Tasmanian devil)
TLDR
Analysis of 14 complete mitochondrial genomes from current and museum specimens, as well as mitochondrial and nuclear SNP markers in 175 animals, suggests that the observed low genetic diversity in today's population preceded the Devil Facial Tumor Disease disease outbreak by at least 100 y. Expand
Experimental vertical transmission of Saint Louis encephalitis virus by Florida mosquitoes.
TLDR
This mosquito species warrants further investigation as a possible overwintering host for the virus in that locality and relatively high rates of vertical transmission of SLE virus observed in the present experiments. Expand
Transgenic pigs produce functional human factor VIII in milk
TLDR
This work has sought to generate a new source of rFVIII by targeting expression of the human FVIII cDNA to the mammary gland of transgenic pigs using the regulatory sequences of the mouse whey acidic protein gene. Expand
Mechanisms of oxidative stress in porcine oocytes and the role of anti-oxidants.
TLDR
The results indicate that the mechanisms of alleviating oxidative stress in porcine oocytes are very complex and supplementing maturing oocytes with anti-oxidants may enhance enzyme activities and eliminate free radicals. Expand
Effects of P.G. 600 on the onset of estrus and ovulation rate in gilts treated with Regu-mate.
TLDR
Three experiments assessed the onset of estrus and ovulation rate in gilts treated with gonadotropins after the withdrawal of an orally active progestin and the beneficial effect of Regu-mate pretreatment on the response to P.G. 600 in prepubertal gilts. Expand
Effects of dietary L-carnitine supplementation on semen characteristics in boars.
TLDR
In conclusion, indicators of semen quality were not enhanced by dietary supplementation of L-carnitine in boars, and spermatozoa from L- c Carnitine-treated boars did not display an enhanced ability to maintain motility during 7-day liquid storage. Expand
Effects of dietary supplementation with an organic source of selenium on characteristics of semen quality and in vitro fertility in boars.
TLDR
It is suggested that there are positive effects of dietary supplementation with Sel-Plex on boar semen characteristics and that organic Se supplementation may help ameliorate the negative effects of semen storage on characteristics of sperm motility. Expand
