The effects of high temperature on multiple parameters of broilers were evaluated both in vitro and in vivo. In the in vitro study, the bilateral musculus fibularis longus muscles of 8 broilers were isolated and incubated at either 41.5 or 44.5 degrees C. The greater incubation temperature increased mitochondrial H2O2 production by 28.0% (P < 0.0001), malondialdehyde concentration by 16.8% (P = 0.0368), and lactate concentration by 33.0% (P < 0.0001) and decreased mitochondrial Ca2+-ATPase… CONTINUE READING
