Some of the effects of individual nutritional deficiencies on embryonic development are proposed, with special emphasis on the age at death of the embryo and the occurrence of specific abnormalities. Expand

Some of the better-known periods when the embryo is susceptible to disturbances, either of inherent or external origin, are reviewed and some of the known factors which contribute to the sensitivity are summarized. Expand
Maternal diet deficient in riboflavin induces embryonic death associated with alterations in the hepatic proteome of duck embryos
Maternal RD leads to embryonic death of offspring and is associated with impaired energy generation processes, indicated by a number of downregulated proteins involved in the fatty acid beta-oxidation, ETC, and TCA cycle in the hepatic of duck embryos. Expand
The Barn Owl (Tyto alba) in Turkey
The Barn Owl (Tyto alba) was first described in 1769 by Joannes A. Scopoli, most probably from Carniola, a duchy of the Habsburg Monarchy, which is today mainly located in Slovenia, except for aExpand
Ectopic Expression of Riboflavin-binding Protein Gene TsRfBP Paradoxically Enhances Both Plant Growth and Drought Tolerance in Transgenic Arabidopsis thaliana
The results suggest that a slight deficiency in free riboflavin can paradoxically induce both a higher vegetative growth rate and an enhanced tolerance to drought in transgenic plants, and the “stress escape” hypothesis is proposed here to explain this interesting phenomenon. Expand
Observation of oscillatory surface reactions of riboflavin, trolox, and singlet oxygen using single carbon nanotube fluorescence spectroscopy.
This study identifies and assigns the signature of the complex decomposition and reaction pathways of riboflavin in the presence of the free radical scavenger Trolox using DNA-wrapped SWCNT sensors dispersed onto an aminopropyltriethoxysilane coated surface. Expand
Relationship of Late Embryo Loss and Anomalies in Broiler Offspring
It is strongly suggested that TA plays a minor role, if at all, as a cause of lower EHF and that TA incidence may serve as a biomarker for hatching efficiency. Expand
Nutrient Metabolism Riboflavin-Binding Protein Induces Early Death of Chicken Embryos 1 Â » 2
Maternal riboflavin-binding protein (RfBP) mediates the deposition of riboflavin in avian eggs. A strain of Single-Comb White Leghorn chicken, geneti cally unable to synthesize RfBP, produces eggsExpand
Thallium Chondrodystrophy in Chick Embryos
  • 2006
The injection of monovalentthallium sulphate into the yolk sac of the developing chicken embryo at any time from four to twelve days of incubation was shown by Karnofsky, Ridgway, and Patterson toExpand
The abundance of essential vitamins in food chains and its impact on avian reproduction
Differences between habitats in inver- tebrate density and composition, and within clutches, remain whether habitat differences in vitamin concentrations occur due to differences in food abundance or its vitamin load. Expand


The Effect of a Riboflavin Deficiency in the Hen upon Embryonic Development of the Chick
An attempt was made to determine if histopathologic changes could be demonstrated in the developing embryos from hens on riboflavin low diets, and it was found that the hatchability of the eggs from he chickens on a ration low in rib oflavin was lowered, and that the addition of dietary supplements high in ribOflavin increased the Hatchability.

The Importance of Riboflavin in Reproduction in Poultry
Abstract VITAMIN G, or more specifically riboflavin, has been shown by many workers to be essential for good hatchability. Additions to the ration of carriers or concentrates of this vitamin, such asExpand
The evidence appears conclusive that there are at least three relatively heat stable substances in the vitamin B complex: riboflavin; vitamin B6; and another substance which may be considered P-P or the Goldberger pellagra-preventive substance, which may or may not be the same as the substance which prevents blacktongue in dogs.

The Rôle of Vitamin G in Reproduction in Poultry
Abstract THE vitamin G complex as found in dried liver, autoclaved yeast, and dried whey was reported by Bethke, Record, and Kennard (1933) to exert a beneficial effect upon hatchability. Shell-free,Expand
The effect of riboflavin and the filtrate factor on egg production and hatchability
It is suggested that more than one factor in the vitamin-G complex is involved in hatchability of eggs, and the term “vitamin G” as previously used in the literature covered the complex action of several vitamins. Expand
A New Nutritional Disease of the Chick Embryo
Abnormal embryos and chicks, with relatively short bones, were frequently produced in eggs laid by birds which received diets lacking in some factor or factors present in wheat germ, liver, and whey. Expand
