On transport and at the abattoir animals are confronted with a lot of stressors, such as sound/noise, crowding/mixing, pollutants and infectious agents that act on the organism. After transport stress an endogenous contamination is often seen in slaughter carcasses and presents a hazard for the consumer. These events are often correlated with a rise in(More)
We provide the first report of unique leucine zipper-like coiled-coil sequence motifs at the amino terminus (N-) of proBrain Natriuretic Peptide (proBNP) and proAtrial Natriuretic Peptide (proANP). These motifs were highly conserved across most of the known natriuretic peptide sequences from different species. Consistent with computer based modelling(More)
Acute myocardial infarction (MI) results in activation of neurohormonal systems and increased plasma concentrations of myocardial enzymes and structural proteins. We hypothesized that plasma levels of N-terminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide (NT-BNP) would respond more vigorously after MI than those of other natriuretic peptides. We also sought to compare(More)
BACKGROUND Salmonellosis and systemic endotoxaemia affect intestinal function. However, little is known about the functional importance of luminal Salmonella (S.) endotoxin during intestinal infection. METHODS Pigs were either given or not given lipopolysaccharide (LPS, 30 mg day(-1)) of S. Typhimurium DT-104 orally for 14 days. Blood samples were taken(More)
