Transport stress increases somatic cell counts in milk, and enhances the migration capacity of peripheral blood neutrophils of dairy cows.
The present study was designed to determine the effects of physiological stress on milk-somatic cell counts (SCC) and function of bovine peripheral blood leukocytes (PBL). Nine healthy lactating cowsExpand

The influence of oxidative bursts of phagocytes on red blood cell oxidation in anemic cattle infected with Theileria sergenti
The primary clinical symptom of Japanese bovine theileriosis, caused by the intraerythrocytic protozoan Theileria sergenti, is anemia, but the underlying mechanism of this anemia remains unknown. ToExpand

Oxidative damage and phosphatidylserine expression of red blood cells in cattle experimentally infected with Theileriasergenti
Abstract. In order to elucidate the mechanism of anemia in Japanese bovine theileriosis, we investigated the oxidative alteration of red blood cells (RBCs) in cattle infected with Theileriasergenti.Expand

Acquired methemoglobinemia in anemic cattle infected with Theileria sergenti.
To investigate the mechanism of anemia accompanying Japanese bovine theileriosis, we examined whether production of methemoglobin (MetHB), an indicator of erythrocyte oxidation, was associated withExpand

Flow cytometry to evaluate Theileria sergenti parasitemia using the fluorescent nucleic acid stain, SYTO16.
BACKGROUND Although the infection of Theileria sergenti is demonstrated by intraerythrocytic localization of this parasite, much time and labor are necessary in order to determine this. We appliedExpand

Increase in oxidized proteins in Theileria sergenti-infected erythrocyte membrane.
As a part of the elucidation of the pathogenesis of anemia in Theileria sergenti infection, oxidized-erythrocyte membrane proteins (OEMPs) collected from T. sergenti-infected calves were examined.Expand

Accelerated binding of autoantibody to red blood cells with increasing anaemia in cattle experimentally infected with Theileria sergenti.
Anaemia is the most important clinical manifestation in cattle infected with Theileria sergenti. In order to determine the mechanism of red blood cells (RBC) destruction in anaemic cattle, we studiedExpand

Increase in apoptotic polymorphonuclear neutrophils in peripheral blood after intramammary infusion of Escherichia coli lipopolysaccharide.
A transient increase in apoptotic polymorphonuclear neutrophils (PMNs) as revealed by the terminal deoxynucleotidyl, transferase-mediated dUTP nick end labeling (TUNEL) technique in bovine jugularExpand
