The ethanol-induced conformation transition of regenerated B. mori silk fibroin membrane from a poorly defined to the well ordered state was monitored by time-resolved Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) for the first time. From the analysis of FTIR difference spectra, taken on time scale...

Two invertebrate haemoglobins (Hb) from Ascaris suum and Lucina pectinata in which residues E7 and B10 are a glutamine and tyrosine, respectively, and which have high oxygen affinities stemming from slow ligand off rates were compared with respect to conformational and functional properties. Ultravi...

Phenobarbital (PB) therapy is frequently associated with elevated serum alanine aminotransferase (ALT) and alkaline phosphatase (AP) activities in dogs without clinical signs of liver disease. The goal of this study was to determine if increased serum ALT and AP activities in clinically healthy PB-t...

Paired samples of formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded ileum and lymph node from 204 culled dairy cows were investigated for evidence of infection by Mycobacterium avium subsp. paratuberculosis. Of the samples, 151 were from animals that were tissue-culture positive for M. avium subsp. paratuberculosis...

The objective of this study was to determine the effect of season on the histologic and histomorphometric appearance of the normal equine pituitary gland. Pituitary glands were collected at necropsy from 121 horses throughout the year. Plasma was also collected from 59 of these horses before euthana...

We evaluated the effects of immunostimulation in the development of postweaning multisystemic wasting syndrome (PMWS) in 930 pigs 53 to 54 d old in a grower/finisher barn with a history of PMWS. The pigs were allocated to 5 treatment groups: 4 groups received a single intramuscular injection of Resp...

Increased accountability has been a catalyst for the reformation of curriculum and assessment practices in postsecondary schools throughout North America, including veterinary schools. There is a call for a shift in assessment practices in clinical rotations, from a focus on content to a focus on as...

In 13 Smooth Fox Terriers with a congenital form of myasthenia gravis, clinical signs included intermittent, progressive muscle weakness that became more pronounced with exercise; muscle wasting; megaoesophagus; and aspiration pneumonia. Neurological abnormalities were apparent only during periods o...

A malignant neoplastic process originating from gall bladder epithelium was diagnosed in a 14-year-old, spayed female, domestic shorthair cat. The tumor produced widespread pulmonary and lymphatic metastases. The clinical and pathological manifestations are described. Neoplasia arising from the gall...

Fifty-six dogs from St. John's, Newfoundland, Canada, were evaluated for Angiostrongylus vasorum infection. Small numbers of nematodes were found within pulmonary arteries of 6 dogs. Larvae were identified in fecal samples in 2 of 6 dogs. All 6 dogs had multifocal granulomatous pneumonia and sometim...

Described are the first antemortem diagnosis made via fecal examination using the Baermann technique and the first postmortem recovery of endemic Angiostrongylus vasorum in dogs from North America, specifically the Avalon peninsula of Newfoundland. In one dog, A. vasorum was recovered and identified...

This note discusses the correction made by Sheridan to the formula used for predicting changes in fish size on the basis of selection differentials for a correlated trait [Canadian Journal of Fisheries and Aquatic Sciences (1996) 53 (4) 933]. It draws attention to the fact that, to predict the direc...

Escaped hybrid catfish (female Thai walking catfish, Clarias macrocephalus x male African catfish, C. gariepinus) from farms in central Thailand may interbreed with C. macrocephalus individuals in the wild. We assessed genetic introgression of C. gariepinus genes into four wild and two broodstock po...
