The acute phase response to inflammation induces changes in the secretion of hepatic proteins. To examine the time course of an acute phase protein response in broiler chickens, the plasma levels of hemopexin (HX) and alpha1-acid glycoprotein (AGP) and liver HX mRNA were measured at various time points from 3 hr to 336 hr after an intraabdominal injection of either lipopolysaccharide (LPS), complete Freund's adjuvant, incomplete Freund's adjuvant, phytohemagglutin, or mineral oil. Uninjected… CONTINUE READING
