Circulating corticosterone reaction to restraint and adrenocorticotropin hormone administration in white leghorns selected for immune response traits.

Abstract

Corticosterone plasma concentration was measured in a random-bred control line and in 3 White Leghorn chicken lines previously selected over 9 generations for 3 different in vivo immune responses: high antibody response to Newcastle disease virus vaccine 3 wk after vaccination (ND3), high cell-mediated immune response (response to phytohemagglutinin, PHA… (More)
