Modern rearing conditions may cause stress to pigs. At the cellular level all animals respond to stress by synthesizing heat shock proteins (HSP), which protect cells from injury. The objective of this study was to examine the concentrations of stress-inducible HSP72 in porcine small intestine and colon, known to be stress sensitive tissues, and to compare the findings with HSP72 concentrations in serum and with conventional markers of stress, namely blood lactate and serum cortisol, glucose… CONTINUE READING
