Pathological observations of an experimental infection of geese with goose circovirus
There is so far no report describing the pathogenicity of goose circovirus (GoCV) following experimental infection. We report here an experimental inoculation of 21-day-old geese with a GoCVExpand

Nitric oxide (NO) produced by vascular endothelial cells is an important determinant of the basal tone of small arteries and arterioles. Impaired endothelial NO production has been implicated in theExpand
Development of an immunosensor assay for detection of haptoglobin in mastitic milk.
BACKGROUND Detection of subclinical mastitis in dairy cows is important, as it represents a major economic challenge for the dairy industry worldwide owing to propagation of mastitis-causingExpand
Down-regulation of NOD1 in neutrophils of periparturient dairy cows.
Increased susceptibility of periparturient dairy cows to infectious diseases has been linked to neutrophil dysfunction. Cytoplasmic nucleotide-binding oligomerization domain (NOD)-like receptorsExpand
Involvement of matrix metalloproteinase-2 in medial hypertrophy of pulmonary arterioles in broiler chickens with pulmonary arterial hypertension.
Medial hypertrophy of pulmonary arterioles during pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) in humans is associated with enhanced proliferation of smooth muscle cells (SMCs). Elevated matrixExpand
The effect of dietary l-carnitine supplementation on pulmonary hypertension syndrome mortality in broilers exposed to low temperatures.
Oxidative stress is involved in the development of pulmonary hypertension syndrome (PHS) in broilers. l-Carnitine has an antiperoxidative effect and supplemental l-carnitine has been revealed toExpand
Effector responses of bovine blood neutrophils against Escherichia coli: Role of NOD1/NF-κB signalling pathway.
Neutrophils use a broad array of pattern recognition receptors to sense and respond to invading pathogens and are important in the early control of acute bacterial infections. Nucleotide-bindingExpand
Metabonomics Profiling Reveals Biochemical Pathways Associated with Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension in Broiler Chickens.
Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is the major cause of death in fast growing meat-type chickens (broiler chickens). At present, the underlying mechanisms that give rise to PAH are not fullyExpand
Involvement of endothelial progenitor cells in the formation of plexiform lesions in broiler chickens: possible role of local immune/inflammatory response
Plexiform lesions (PLs), which are often accompanied by perivascular infiltrates of mononuclear cells, represent the hallmark lesions of pulmonary arteries in humans suffering from severe pulmonaryExpand
Persistence of oxytetracycline residues in milk after the intrauterine treatment of lactating cows for endometritis
Milk samples were collected at one day intervals after the last dose from 31 cows that had received an intrauterine infusion of oxytetracycline once daily between one and five times. The tetrazoliumExpand
