The effects of hydroxypropyl potato starches (HPS) of three different degrees of substitution (DS) on concentration of plasma cholesterol, apparent digestibility of protein, fecal excretion of bile acids, fecal output and cecal pool of organic acids such as acetic, propionic, butyric, lactic and succinic acid were studied in rats in Experiment 1.

To investigate the early host defense function in aquatic animals, the respiratory burst activity of bottlenose dolphin neutrophils against soluble and particulate stimulants was measured by luminol-dependent chemiluminescence assays and compared with those of bovine and human. Dolphin neutrophils generated the respiratory burst in response to phorbol(More)
We studied the effects of recombinant dolphin tumor necrosis factor alpha (rdoTNFalpha) on the respiratory burst activity of dolphin neutrophils. rdoTNFalpha enhanced the luminol-dependent chemiluminescence response of dolphin neutrophils induced by concanavalin-A, opsonized zymosan, and heated plasma, but not that induced by phorbol myristate acetate.
