Serum electrolytes, minerals, blood biochemical and plasma enzymes were studied in heat exposed buffalo heifers supplemented with yeast powder in feed to alleviate the adverse effects of heat stress. Eighteen healthy Murrah buffalo heifers (270–280) kg were divided into three groups. Animals of group I were kept in shed and served as control, while group II(More)
Heat stress in farm animals, such as cattle and buffalo during summer and post-summer seasons is a problem for livestock producers. The effect of heat stress becomes pronounced when heat stress is accompanied with ambient humidity impairing the immune status, growth, production and reproductive performance of animals. Increase in HSP70 levels from cell(More)
The efficacy of peritoneal fluid from rabbit and goat for in vitro maturation, fertilization and initial culture of embryos from caprine oocytes was evaluated. Peritoneal fluid was collected from adult female goats (n = 9) or rabbits (n = 9). Good quality oocytes were subjected to in vitro maturation and fertilization in three different media viz. Tissue(More)
Temperature variability impact on physiological, hematological and biochemical parameters of growing and adult Karan Fries cattle was studied during hot humid, winter, spring and summer. During forenoon and afternoon the respiration rate (RR) and rectal temperature (RT) increased by 4.67 and 3.67 breaths/min and 0.87°C and 0.77°C respectively in growing KF(More)
Skin is most important environmental interface providing a protective envelope to animals. It's always under the influence of both internal and external stressors. Heat shock proteins (HSP) are highly conserved stress proteins which play crucial roles in environmental stress tolerance and thermal adaptation. Present study was planned to observe the relative(More)
Interferon tau, a 23 KDa trophoblast derived protein diffuses out from the uterus into the circulation and leads to the expression of IFNτ stimulated genes viz. ISG15 and OAS1 in blood neutrophils. The IFNτ pathway is species as well as tissue specific. To unsnarl the IFNτ downstream signaling pathway, the blood neutrophils were incubated simultaneously(More)
AIM The present investigation was undertaken to study the impact of heat stress and hypercapnia on physiological, hematological, and behavioral profile of Tharparkar and Karan Fries (KF) heifers. MATERIALS AND METHODS The animals of both the breeds of Tharparkar and KF were exposed at different temperatures and CO2 levels. Exposure conditions of 25°C, 400(More)
AIM The objective of this study was designed to estimate the metabolic heat production and methane emission in Sahiwal and Karan Fries (Holstein-Friesian X Tharparkar) heifers under two different feeding regimes, i.e., feeding regime-1 as per the National Research Council (NRC) (2001) and feeding regime-2 having 15% higher energy (supplementation of(More)
Free radical reactions are the integral part of normal metabolism. Normally, oxidation is necessary to provide energy for maintenance of cellular integrity and functions (Miller et al., 1993). In normal cellular metabolism, low to moderate ROS is generated as part of the signaling pathways, and in innate and adaptive immune response against danger signals(More)
