The ventilation method used in the management of laboratory rats is important in maintaining their health. Rats kept under general diluting ventilation (GDV) are exposed to high levels of pollutants present in the environment (dust, airborne bacteria, etc.) or those pollutants produced by animal metabolism and excretion inside the boxes (e.g. ammonia and(More)
Incubation of plasma from the snake Crotalus durissus terrificus (CDTP) with trypsin generated two hypotensive peptides. The primary structure of the peptides was established for two sequences as: (Ser-Ile-Pro-Gln-Ala-Pro-Thr-Ser-Asn-Leu-Ile-Glu-Ala-Thr-Lys) and (Lys-Pro-Asp-Ala-Asn-Gln-Val-Leu-Ile-Gln-Val-Ile-Gly-Val). These peptides display homology with(More)
A cabinet with an intracage ventilation system (ICV) was developed, and rats (Rattus norvegicus) were exposed to five air-speed levels (ICV 1, 0.03 to 0.12 m/s; ICV 2, 0.13 to 0.18 m/s; ICV 3, 0.19 to 0.33 m/s; ICV 4, 0.34 to 0.51 m/s, and ICV 5, 0.52 to 0.80 m/s) to evaluate optimal rates for ventilation and to assess whether reproductive performance(More)
Incubation of plasma from the snake Bothrops jararaca (BJP) with trypsin generated two hypotensive peptides. The primary structure of the peptides was established for three sequences as: Asn-Pro-Phe-Val-Asp-Ala (fraction 13), Ser-Lys-Pro-Asn-Met-Ser-Asp-Glu-Ser-Leu-Ala-Val-Ala-Ile (fraction 14), Asn-Pro-Phe- Val-Asp-Ala (fraction 15). These peptides display(More)
