1. The noted fall of the erythrocyte count, haemoglobin and haematocrit levels after stilbestrol indicate that this hormone disturbs erythropoiesis, probably by depressing the maturation of erythroid cells in the bone marrow. 2. The reaction of the erythrocyte system of birds intoxicated with Ekatin indicates that this pesticide has a haemolytic influence on the morphotic elements of the blood. 3. Estrogenisation enhances the action of Ekatin on the erythrocyte system by as it seems increasing… Expand

Blood morphology in quails after poisoning with fenitrothion.
TLDR
In males, changes in the blood appeared far earlier than in females and they underwent compensation earlier, i.e. 3 weeks after intoxication the majority of the haematological parameters reached values similar to those of the controls. Expand
Gill carbohydrate metabolism of rainbow trout is modified during gradual adaptation to sea water
TLDR
The results indicated changes, mainly size-independent, in carbohydrate metabolism of gills during gradual adaptation to sea water, as a result of both higher glycogenolysis and greater supply of exogeneous glucose. Expand

Haematological changes in male and female pharaoh quails (Coturnix coturnix Pharaoh) after Ekatin intoxication.
TLDR
In males changes in the blood appeared far earlier than in females and they underwent compensation earlier, that is, 3 weeks after intoxication the majority of the haemotological parameters reached values similar to the control. Expand
Effect of prolonged exhibition of diethylstilbestrol on plasma and tissue lipids in the chick.
TLDR
The data suggest that stilbestrol-induced hyperlipemia is not due merely to altered distribution of cholesterol, phospholipid and neutral fat between plasma and tissues. Expand

ASPECTS OF THE AGING OF THE AVIAN (NUCLEATED) RED BLOOD CELL IN VIVO.
TLDR
Determination of relative-specific enzyme activities indicates that only a small, fragile young cell component (LDH and GOT) is associated with increased enzyme activities but that the bulk of young chicken cells exhibits only average enzyme levels. Expand
CHANGES IN ERYTHROCYTE LEVELS AND THE MEAN CORPUSCULAR HAEMOGLOBIN CONCENTRATION IN HENS DURING THE LAYING CYCLE.
TLDR
A simple modification of the alkaline haematin method which will reliably determine haemoglobin in nucleated erythrocytes is described and is presented to indicate the dangers in this field of making deductions from isolated measurements on a population of hens. Expand
Sex differences in the effects of microsomal enzyme inducers on hepatic phase I drug metabolism in the rat.
TLDR
It is clear that the effects of the pretreatments are related to the sex differences in phase I metabolism in the rat, and it is possible that the sex-dependent cytochrome P-450 species are selectively sensitive to the action of the compounds in terms of induction, repression or inhibition. Expand
Hematology of Japanese quail treated with exogenous stilbestrol dipropionate and testosterone propionate.
TLDR
Stilbestrol-treated quail had significantly lower erythrocyte counts, packed cell volume values, hemoglobin concentrations and relative percentage distributions of lymphocytes and showed higher percentages of heterophils and higher total protein content when compared with control birds. Expand
The effects of estrogen and androgen on osmotic fragility and fatty acid composition of erythrocytes in the chicken.
TLDR
Incubation of erythrocytes in plasma derived from birds of the opposite sex increased the osmotic stability of ceils from males and decreased the stability of cells from females in comparison with the stability from females incubated in autologous plasma. Expand

TLDR
Application of cold together with wetness, acute anoxia, restraint or injection of saline, epinephrine, histamine, or formaldehyde was followed by an acidophilia in white leghorn cockerels within 4–8 hours, consistent with the supposition that the above stressors activate the adrenocortical tissue of the chicken.

TLDR
This work has shown that the effect of relatively pure FSH and LH (or ICSH) upon the testes and the secretion of male hormone is largely determined by a study of hypophysectomized cockerels. Expand
