Gene expression analysis of the innate immune system during early rearing and weaning of meagre (Argyrosomus regius)
(Fish and Shellfish Immunology, 2019-10-06)
The present study is the first report of some representative innate immune genes in meagre (Argyrosomus regius) larvae. This study has specifically focused on the growth period from hatching to the juvenile stage, a critical ...
Fast analysis of relevant contaminants mixture in commercial shellfish
One of the major challenges currently faced is to develop systematic ways of addressing chemical mixtures in environmental assessment. With this purpose, a simple, rapid, and sensitive method for the detection and ...
To what extent is climate change adaptation a novel challenge for agricultural modellers?
(Environmental Modelling & Software, 2019-07-29)
Modelling is key to adapting agriculture to climate change (CC), facilitating evaluation of the impacts and eﬃcacy of adaptation measures, and the design of optimal strategies. Although there are many challenges to modelling ...
Pharmacokinetics of oral and subcutaneous meloxicam: Effect on indicators of pain and inflammation after knife castration in weaned beef calves
(PLoS ONE, 2019-05-24)
Oral meloxicam is labelled for reducing pain and inflammation associated with castration in cattle in Canada, however, subcutaneous meloxicam is only labelled for pain associated with dis-budding and abdominal surgery. The ...
Feeding pasteurized waste milk to preweaned dairy calves changes fecal and upper respiratory tract microbiota
(Frontiers in Veterinary Science, 2019-06-06)
In the present study bacterial communities from both, the gastrointestinal and respiratory tract of pre-weaned dairy calves fed two different milk-feeding programs were characterized using 16S rRNA gene sequencing. Twenty ...
How far are we from providing pigs appropriate environmental enrichment?
Effects of soy protein base diet supplemented with lysine and methionine on digestive enzymes activity and hematological parameters in silvery-black porgy (Sparidentex hasta) juveniles
(Iranian Journal of Fisheries Sciences, 2019-03-06)
The effect of dietary partial replacement of fish meal (FM) by soybean protein (SP) alone or in combination with lysine (Lys) and methionine (Met) supplementation were tested in a 60-days feeding trial for silvery-black ...
Composition of the microbial communities in the gastrointestinal tract of perch (Perca fluviatilis L. 1758) and cestodes parasitizing the perch digestive tract
(Journal of Fish Diseases, 2019-10-29)
Using the approach of sequencing the V3‐V4 region of the 16S rRNA gene, we have analysed the bacterial diversity associated with the distinct compartments of the gastrointestinal tract of perch (Perca fluviatilis) and ...
In vivo safety evaluation of the Clostridium butyricum MIYAIRI 588 strain in broilers, piglets, and turkeys
(Toxicology Research and Application, 2019-02-11)
Clostridium butyricum MIYAIRI 588 (CBM 588) is a nonpathogenic, anaerobic, gram-positive bacillus characterized by the production of short-chain fatty acids, including butyrate. The safety and tolerance of CBM 588 was ...
Linking stocking densities and feeding strategies with social and individual stress responses on gilthead seabream (Sparus aurata)
(Physiology and Behavior, 2019-10-24)
Intensive aquaculture and poor management practices can cause stress and compromise welfare of farmed fish. This study aimed to assess the potential links between stocking densities and feeding methods with social and ...
