The most common species is Trichuris vulpis, while the respiratory parasites Eucoleus boehmi (syn. Capillaria boehmi) and Eucoleus aerophilus (syn. Capillaria aerophila)(More)
The concentrations of T4 and T3 were measured by specific RIAs in chicken embryonated eggs and embryonic tissues before (at 4 and 6 days of incubation) and after the onset of thyroid function (at 10-20 days). All samples were submitted to extensive delipidation and purification. T4 and T3 were found in the yolk, as described by others, and also in the egg(More)
The control of embryonic growth in vertebrates appears to rely on the orchestrated action of several families of growth factors and hormones. The contribution of insulin-like growth factor (IGF-I) to prenatal growth regulation is better established in mammals than in other vertebrate species. The status of (pro)insulin gene product(s) in the pancreas and(More)
