1. Digestibilities of feed and turnover time (1/k), Transit time (TT) and mean retention time (MRT: 1/k + TT) of fluid and particle markers were measured in the guinea-pig (Cavia porcellus), degu (Octodon degus) and leaf-eared mouse (Phyllotis darwini) fed a diet containing 50% alfalfa. 2. The digestibility of fibre and the retention time of digesta were(More)

Intra-articular bleeding causes degradation of articular cartilage leading to joint disorders, but the mechanisms is not well understood. The present study examined the effect of hemoglobin on the ability of synovial tissues to produce plasminogen activators and matrix metalloproteinases that play important roles in the degradation of articular cartilage.(More)
Lectin-gold complexes in the dark granules (DGs) and the dense substance (DS) of vallate taste buds were localized. Both the DGs and the DS were labelled with wheat-germ agglutinin, Ulex europeus agglutinin-I and peanut agglutinin. Their common reaction to these lectins suggested that the DGs contain carbohydrate components similar to those of the DS. The(More)
