Role of glutathione, glutathione transferase, and glutaredoxin in regulation of redox-dependent processes

This review summarizes recent data on the role of glutathione, glutATHione transferase, and glutaredoxin in the regulation of cellular redox-dependent processes.

Physiological underpinnings in life-history trade-offs in man’s most popular selection experiment: the dog

It is shown that selection for body size may influence the attributes of cells that shape proliferative cellular rates and rates of telomere shortening in dogs, and the potential links between body size, and cellular oxidative stress in dogs as they age are discussed.

The insulin-like growth factor 1 receptor (IGF1R) contributes to reduced size in dogs

This study sought to identify additional genes that contribute to tiny size in dogs using an association scan with the single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) dataset CanMap, and revealed a nonsynonymous SNP that changes a highly conserved arginine at amino acid 204 to histidine in the insulin-like growth factor 1 receptor (IGF1R).

The Relationship between Summated Tissue Respiration and Metabolic Rate in the Mouse and Dog

The nature of the axial gradients in Planaria and their relation to anteroposterior dominance, polarity, and symmetry and the effects of certain depressing agents on intracellular oxidation of indicators in Hydra are studied.

Methods and mortality results of a health survey of purebred dogs in the UK.

This survey shows breed differences in lifespan and causes of death, and the results support previous evidence that smaller breeds tend to have longer lifespan compared with larger breeds.

Transport of L-lysine by rat renal brush border membrane vesicles.

carrier mediated transport of L-lysine via (a) transport mechanism(s) not obligatory requiring sodium and (b) electrogenic uptake mechanism only in the presence of sodium are documented.

Insulin‐like growth factor I gene deletion causing intrauterine growth retardation and severe short stature

The patient was a 15‐year‐old boy from a consanguineous pedigree who presented with severe intrauterine growth failure, sensorineural deafness and mild mental retardation, and his neurological abnormalities suggest that IGF‐I may be involved in central nervous system development.

Body-weight changes during growth in puppies of different breeds.

The aim of this study was to compare the complete growth curves of 12 different-sized dog breeds and to investigate a mathematical basis for the provision of breed-specific feeding guides.
