The present study evaluated the effects of the inclusion of three seaweeds, Gracilaria vermiculophylla (GRA), Porphyra dioica (POR), and Ulva spp. (ULV), as dietary ingredients for Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) juveniles, on the growth performance, body composition, and gut histology. Three experimental diets (GRA, POR, and ULV) were formulated to(More)
Dietary inclusion of IMTA-cultivated Gracilaria vermiculophylla was evaluated in rainbow trout. Growth and feed efficiency were determined in fish fed 0 % (CTRL), 5 % (G5), and 10 % (G10) of the red seaweed for 91 days. Carotenoid concentration (skin and muscle), immunological parameters, and intestinal morphology were also evaluated. G10 group showed the(More)
BACKGROUND In tropical countries, losses caused by bovine tick Rhipicephalus (Boophilus) microplus infestation have a tremendous economic impact on cattle production systems. Genetic variation between Bos taurus and Bos indicus to tick resistance and molecular biology tools might allow for the identification of molecular markers linked to resistance traits(More)
Tumour necrosis factor (TNF), a pleiotropic cytokine that regulates cell growth and differentiation as well as the synthesis of other cytokines, has been identified in the uterus of several species describing a cyclic pattern, eventually under ovarian steroid regulation. Information is yet limited on the presence of TNF protein in the canine endometrium(More)
The effects of using plant ingredients in Senegalese sole (Solea senegalensis) diet on immune competence and intestine morphology and microbial ecology are still controversial. Probiotics or immunostimulants can potentially alter the intestinal microbiota in a way that protects fish against pathogens. The current study aimed to examine the intestine(More)
