The effect of karaya saponin supplementation on the serum and egg yolk cholesterol and fatty acid composition in egg yolk were investigated in Japanese quails. A total of 80 Japanese quails aged 5 weeks were equally divided into four groups of 20. Four levels (0, 25, 50 and 75 mg/kg feed) of karaya saponin were included in the basal diet and experiment was lasted for 6 weeks. The cholesterol fractions in the egg yolk and serum were measured by enzymatic assay, and the fatty acid composition in… 
Effects of dietary alfalfa saponins on laying performance, egg cholesterol concentration, and ATP-binding cassette transporters G5 and G8 expression in laying hens
ABSTRACT This experiment was designed to evaluate the potential for dietary alfalfa saponins (AS) to influence cholesterol (Ch) concentrations and the mRNA expressions of the ATP-binding cassette
Addition of binahong (Anredera cordifolia) leaf powder to diets to produce eggs with low cholesterol
The addition of 2% binahong was enough to obtain healthy quail eggs with low levels of cholesterol, triglyceride, and LDL, and the cholesterol, lipid, and cholesterol contents in yolk decreased significantly in T1, whereas HDL increased significant in T2 and T3.
Digital Gene-Expression Profiling Analysis of the Cholesterol-Lowering Effects of Alfalfa Saponin Extract on Laying Hens
Background To prevent cardiovascular disease, people are advised to limit their intake of dietary cholesterol to less than 300 mg/day. Egg consumption has been seriously reduced because of the high
The effect of different high-fat diets on erythrocyte osmotic fragility, growth performance and serum lipid concentrations in male, Japanese quail (Coturnix coturnix japonica).
Feeding quail high-energy diets of varying degrees of fatty acid saturation was well tolerated and did not seem to affect the overall health status of the birds.

Anti-nutritional factors are substances that even in vestigial state, reduce or prevent the use of a nutritional element. These anti-nutritional factors, most of which are secondary metabolites,
Characterization of in vivo anti-rotavirus activities of saponin extracts from Quillaja saponaria Molina.
It is established that at a dosage of 0.015 mg/mouse of saponin extract, RRV induced diarrhea can be significantly reduced from 79% to 11% when mice are exposed to 500 plaque-forming-units for each of five consecutive days.

Effect of different dietary levels of Yucca schidigera powder on the performance, blood parameters and egg yolk cholesterol of laying quails.
Body weight, egg production, feed consumption and feed efficiency were not different due to dietary treatments among the groups, and yucca powder supplementation decreased serum glucose, cholesterol triglyceride level in laying quails.
Effect of dietary karaya saponin on serum and egg yolk cholesterol in laying hens
Karaya saponin is a potential agent for reducing yolk cholesterol concentration together with an overall increase of production performance and improvement in egg quality.
Effects of karaya saponin and Rhodobacter capsulatus on yolk cholesterol in laying hens
The dietary supplementation of karaya saponin and R. capsulatus may lead to the production of a low-cholesterol egg, with production performance maintained at a standard level.
Dietary Karaya Saponin and Rhodobacter capsulatus Exert Hypocholesterolemic Effects by Suppression of Hepatic Cholesterol Synthesis and Promotion of Bile Acid Synthesis in Laying Hens
The findings suggest that the hypocholesterolemic effects of karaya saponin and R. capsulatus are caused by the suppression of the cholesterol synthesis and the promotion of cholesterol catabolism in the liver.
Effects of Quillaja saponins on growth, metabolism, egg production and muscle cholesterol in individually reared Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus).
The effects of supplementation of a Quillaja saponin (QS) mixture in the diets of tilapia have been studied using a respirometer system that allowed feeding and continuous measurement of oxygen
Karaya root saponin exerts a hypocholesterolemic response in rats fed a high-cholesterol diet.
The results collectively suggest that karaya root saponin can efficiently reduce serum cholesterol concentration in rats.
Effect of dietary Rhodobacter capsulatus on egg-yolk cholesterol and laying hen performance.
The supplementation of R. capsulatus in layer diets did not appear to cause any adverse effects on egg production, shell weight, shell thickness, Haugh unit, yolk index, and feed conversion efficiency compared with the same parameters for the control laying hens.
Effects of dietary garlic on cholesterol metabolism in laying hens.
It was concluded that garlic paste in the diets of laying hens reduced serum and yolk cholesterol concentrations and dietary garlic paste had no adverse effects on layer performance.
Effect of retinyl acetate, ascorbic acid and tocopherol supplementation of the feed on egg vitamin A content in Japanese quail.
The results indicate that vitamin A content of the egg yolk can be increased by a short-term RA supplementation of the laying ration, and the retinoids present in the natural substances of eggs could possibly be a good source of vitamin A for humans.
