Serum biochemical profiling in different varieties of Japanese quail, Coturnix coturnix japonica (Temminck and Schlegel, 1849)

AbstractA good quantum of reports is in record on serum biochemical analysis of Japanese quail. But the serum biochemical parameter of different varieties of healthy Japanese quail is poorly understood, and reference values are sparsely available. The investigation focuses to assess serum biochemical profiles of three different varieties of Japanese quail, i.e. brown-feathered, grey-feathered, and white-feathered at different age groups with sexual dimorphism. The five parameters taken for the analyses include glucose, cholesterol, total protein, albumin, and globulin. Two millilitre of blood was collected from the ulnar vein of 90 individual birds, comprising of 05 males and 05 females, from three age groups and three varieties of Japanese quail. For biochemical analyses, three age groups were considered, i.e. chick (0 –3 weeks), grower (4–5 weeks), and adult (above 5 weeks), respectively. Data were analysed through standard statistical methods such as ANOVA and test of significance by using Paleontological Statistics (PAST) version 2.17. The data were presented as mean ± standard error, and the significan t difference both in age and sex has been recorded atp

We previously reported that varenicline aggravates atherosclerosis in apolipoprotein E knockout (ApoE KO) mice. However, it remains unknown whether varenicline affects cardiovascular events in patients with nicotine addiction. Here, we examined the effect of varenicline on atherosclerotic plaque formation in nicotine-pretreat...

Unlike cholesterol, 7KC consistently show...

The objective of this study was to identify proteins expressed in porcine POF before the LH surge and a new CL formed, 2–3 days after ovulation, and evaluate proteome changes associated with formation of the CL from a follicle. We used 2D-gel electrophoresis-based proteomics and tandem mass spectrometry followed by a functional analysis using Ingenuity Pathway analysis (IPA) to evaluate functional pathways associated with the luteinization process. Protein lysates were prepared from isolated POFs and from the newly formed CL. A total of 422 protein spots were identified in both structures. A total of 15 and 48 protei...

Matthew O'Conner presented at Undoing Aging earlier this year on the startup biotech company Underdog Pharmaceuticals. The company is spinning out of the SENS Research Foundation (SRF), based on research conducted by the scientific team there in recent years. The company is focused on a class of molecule known cyclodextrins, and have candidates capable of efficiently binding and sequestering 7-ketocholesterol. This form of oxidized cholesterol is of great importance to the progression of atherosclerosis, and possibly other age-related conditions as well. In the case of atherosclerosis, the presence of oxidized cholesterols...
