The anatomy and histology of the olfactory organ of African ostrich chick were carefully observed by gross anatomy observation, paraffin sectioning and haematoxylin-eosin (HE) staining. The results showed that there were no keratotic nose lids at the entrance of the external naris, and that the nasal cavity was separated into two imperforate compartments by(More)
Airway remodeling is the process of airway structural change that occurs in patients with asthma in response to persistent inflammation and leads to increasing disease severity. Drugs that decrease this persistent inflammation play a crucial role in managing asthma episodes. Mice sensitized (by intraperitoneal administration) and then challenged (by(More)
Ghrelin, the endogenous ligand for the growth hormone secretagogue receptor (GHS-R), has been found in the gastrointestinal tract of many vertebrates, but little is known about its distribution in the gastrointestinal tract of African ostrich chicks. In the present study, the distribution, morphological characteristics, and developmental changes of(More)
Ghrelin is the endogenous ligand for the growth hormone secretagogue receptor (GHS-R). The sequence of ghrelin has been determined in many species ranging from fish to mammals. The ostrich is the largest herbivorous bird in the world. Although the distribution, morphological characteristics, and developmental changes of ghrelin-producing cells in the(More)
Airway remodeling is described as airway structural changes that occur in patients with asthma in response to persistent inflammation. These changes lead to increasing disease severity and drugs which decrease this persistent inflammation play a crucial role in managing asthma episodes. Mice sensitized (intra-peritoneally) and then challenged (by(More)
