The objective of this study was to investigate intestinal nutrient transporter and enzyme mRNA in broilers selected on corn- and soybean-based (line A) or wheat-based (line B) diets. We investigated the peptide transporter PepT1, 10 amino acid transporters (rBAT, b(o,+)AT, ATB(o,+), CAT1, CAT2, LAT1, y(+)LAT1, y(+)LAT2, B(o)AT, and EAAT3), 4 sugar(More)
BACKGROUND Coccidiosis is an intestinal disease caused by protozoal parasites of the genus Eimeria. Despite the advent of anti-coccidial drugs and vaccines, the disease continues to result in substantial annual economic losses to the poultry industry. There is still much unknown about the host response to infection and to date there are no reports of(More)
The intestinal peptide transporter, PepT1, is known to be regulated by a variety of dietary factors, including protein quantity, protein quality, and feed intake. The objective of this experiment was to determine the effect of dietary protein composition on mRNA abundance of chicken PepT1. From day of hatch to day 8, chicks from 2 genetic lines (A and B,(More)
