Taurine (Tau) is reported to have a key role in the regulation of the innate immune response and thus reduce tissue damage induced by bacterial infection. In this study, the effects of Tau on a rat model of mastitis induced by Streptococcus uberis (S. uberis) and the changes of T regulatory cells (Tregs) were assessed. Starting on gestation day 14 and(More)
The aim of this study was to optimize the preparation conditions of salidroside liposome with high encapsulation efficiency (EE) and to study the immunological enhancement activity of salidroside liposome as porcine circovirus type 2 virus (PCV-2) vaccine adjuvant. Response surface methodology (RSM) was selected to optimize the conditions for the(More)
Swine influenza is an economically important respiratory disease of swine resulting from infection with influenza A virus. Swine influenza virus (SIV) becomes the focus as pigs have been hypothesized to serve as an intermediate host for the adaptation of avian influenza viruses to humans or as mixing vessels for the generation of genetically reassortant(More)
To investigate the influence of dietary taurine and reduced housing density on hepatic functions in laying hens, green-shell laying hens were randomly assigned to 3 groups: a free-range group, a caged group with low-density, and a caged group with high-density. Each group was further divided into the control (C) and taurine-treatment (T) groups. All the(More)
In 2006, Yamanaka and Takahashi electrified the scientific community by discovering that mouse somatic cells can be converted into embryonic stem cell-like cells by retroviral transduction of four transcription factors: Oct4, Sox2, Klf4, and c-Myc (OSKM). The first generation of mouse induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells was incompletely reprogrammed, and(More)
