In two trials, Arctic char (Salvelinus alpinus) semen was frozen in 0.5 mL straws using extenders consisting of 0.3 M glucose and 10%, 12.5% or 15% methanol. Cryopreserved semen was thawed by immersing straws in 25°C water for 17 s (11.6°C s-1) or in 5°C water for 60 s (3.3°C s-1). The viability...

Eight female Peromyscus californicus were infected with 102 or 104 Toxoplasma gondii culture-derived tachyzoites (Type II or X) isolated from southern sea otters. All but 2 mice survived infection and developed antibodies to T. gondii. The 2 fatally infected mice were inoculated with 104 tachyzoites...

The study objective was to assess the risk of transplacental transmission of Sarcocystis neurona and Neospora hughesi in foals from 4 California farms during 3 foaling seasons. Serum of presuckle foals and serum and colostrum of periparturient mares were tested using indirect fluorescent antibody te...

Previously we have found that extracellular guanosine (Guo) has neuroprotective properties in in vitro and in vivo. Moreover, extracellular Guo significantly increased in the ipsilateral hemisphere within 2 h following focal stroke in rats, and remained elevated for one week. Therefore, we hypothes...

Passive integrated transponder (PIT) tagging is a commonly used procedure to identify fish. However, there is a lack of research on the short-term effects of such tagging. The purpose of our study was to measure the short-term effects of PIT tagging on the feeding behavior and swimming performance o...

We investigated the effects of preparing surgical incision sites with a topical antiseptic on wound healing and hematological response in rainbow trout Oncorhynchus mykiss. A povidone–iodine solution was applied both pre- and postsurgery to the incision sites on treated fish. Three-cent...

The living ring-opening metathesis polymns. of deltacyclene (I) and 5-(tert-butyldimethylsiloxy)deltacyclene (II) in presence of the Schrock catalyst Mo(=CHCMe2Ph)[=N-2,6-(iso-Pr)2Ph](O-tert-Bu)2 were described. II was prepd. by first epoxidizing I, then treating this epoxide with a Lewis acid in pr...

Theoretical studies have indicated that alternans (period-doubling instability) of action potential duration is associated with a restitution relation with a slope >or=1. However, recent experimental findings suggest that the slope of the restitution relation is not necessarily predictive of alte...

The prevalence of bovine viral diarrhea virus (BVDV) persistency was examined in 12 Holstein dairy herds in Charlottetown, Canada, from Feb. 2009 to Oct. 2009. A total of 469 serum and ear notch biopsy pairs were collected. Depending upon the age and vaccination status, the sampled animals were divi...

We report a method for inserting poly(oxymethylene-oxyethylene) (POMOE) and LiCF3SO3-POMOE (Li-POMOE) complex into V2O5nH2O xerogel at room temperature leading to a bilayer arrangement of the POMOE-chains within the gallery spaces. This could be a significant step towards developing improved electro...

A reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) assay for the detection of avian pneumovirus (APV), Colorado strain (US/CO), was evaluated for sensitivity and specificity. The single-tube RT-PCR assay utilized primers developed from the matrix (M) gene sequence of the US/CO APV. The RT-PC...

A stochastic simulation model was developed to assess the risk of introduction of Mycobacterium avium subsp. paratuberculosis infection into a dairy herd through purchase of female replacement cattle. The effects of infection prevalence in the source herd(s), number of females purchased, and testing...

Defining the cellular electrophysiological mechanisms for ventricular tachyarrhythmias is difficult, given the wide array of potential mechanisms, ranging from abnormal automaticity to various types of reentry and kk activity. The degree of difficulty is increased further by the fact that any partic...

Organoiron polynorbornene containing arylazo or hetarylazo dye chromophores has been prepared via ring opening metathesis polymerization using Grubbs' catalyst. The obtained polymers were isolated as brightly colored materials and displayed good solubility in polar organic solvents. The colors of th...

Myelography and/or computed tomography (CT) are commonly used to evaluate acute intervertebral disk extrusion in chondrodystrophic dogs. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the sensitivity of myelography and two different CT protocols in determining level and lateralization of acute thoracolum...

Moritella viscosa is the causative agent of winter ulcer disease in salmonids reared in North-Atlantic countries. In this study the effects of selected M. viscosa antigens on cytotoxicity and pro-inflammatory gene expression in an Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar Linnaeus) macrophage-like cell line (SHK...
