The bilayer bending rigidities were measured for the same spherical vesicles with two methods, fluctuation mode analysis and electric deformation. In some of the sample cells the glue sealing the cell was in direct contact with the sample, in others the sample was shielded from the glue by a silicone grease. The values of the rigidity, wlfile being lowest(More)
Two Kirk's dik-diks suffered from chronic, unilateral, therapy-resistant enlargement of the preorbital gland. Computed tomographic imaging revealed a homogenous preorbital mass destroying the adjacent maxillary bone in one animal. Squamous cell carcinoma was diagnosed microscopically in both cases. Immunohistochemically, the neoplastic cells uniformly(More)
Clinical, gross, histopathologic, electron microscopic findings and enzymatic analysis of 4 captive, juvenile springboks (Antidorcas marsupialis) showing both polycystic kidneys and a storage disease are described. Springbok offspring (4 of 34; 12%) were affected by either one or both disorders in a German zoo within a period of 5 years (2008-2013).(More)
Malignant catarrhal fever (MCF) represents a sporadic and often fatal disease in various ungulate species including rarely swine. A close contact between susceptible and reservoir species of ovine herpesvirus-2 (OvHV-2) is a requirement for virus transmission. As in ruminants, a rapid course of disease with lymphohistiocytic meningoencephalitis and(More)
Syngnathidae is the family of fish that includes sea horses, pipefish, and sea dragons. To date, only a single publication has described neoplasia in syngnathids, a fibrosarcoma of the brood pouch in an aquarium-reared lined sea horse (Hippocampus erectus). From 1998 until 2010, the Toronto Zoo submitted 172 syngnathids for postmortem; species included the(More)
Serum protein electrophoresis has gained importance in avian medicine during the past decade. Interpretation of electrophoretic patterns should be based on species-specific reference intervals and the electrophoresis gel system. In this study, serum protein electrophoresis by using high-resolution agarose gels was performed on blood samples collected from(More)
