Egg Production Ebooks Catalog
Fertilized one-celled eggs for microinjection are produced by mating a donor female and a stud male. Choosing the right strain of mouse for egg production is pivotal, since the ease and efficacy of generating transgenic mice is highly strain-dependent. Brinster et al. (10) compared C57BL 6J inbred eggs and C57BL 6J x CBA J hybrid eggs in terms of parameters, such as egg yield and survival after injection. Overall, the experiments on hybrid eggs were eightfold more efficient than inbred eggs. Inbred zygotes should only be used when the genetic background of the host animal needs to be carefully controlled. We use F1 animals generated from matings between CBA J and C57BL 6J.
The diagnosis of Diphyllobothrium infection is based upon detection of the characteristic egg in the stool of the worm carrier. Due to the enormous production of eggs the diagnosis is usually rapid and egg concentrations techniques are usually not needed. There is evidence for short-term periodicity, however, in the egg production by the parasite and the egg release may temporarily cease (Kamo et al. 1986). In suspected cases, therefore, faecal samples should be taken and examined with intervals. As the morphology of the Diphyllobothrium egg is very characteristic, there is no problem with differential diagnosis from other human parasites. It is impossible, however, to distinguish between different Diphyllobothrium species on the basis of egg size and morphology. The tapeworm anaemia is diagnosed from changes in the blood picture and bone marrow. For differential diagnosis genuine pernicious anaemia has to be considered.
Since the current strains of H5N1 influenza emerged in poultry in Southeast Asia, continuous spread to both neighboring and distant countries has been observed. Migratory waterfowl and shorebirds are carriers of avian influenza viruses, and often intermingle with domesticated fowl in open-air farms and markets. Poultry industry and governmental efforts to control the spread of H5N1 in avian populations is critical and often consists of culling large numbers of birds. These efforts have significant economic effects and have been resisted in some locations. Transmission between geographic areas has also occurred due to importation (legal and illegal) of exotic birds
The chicken mite, Dermanyssus gallinae, has a world-wide distribution and is a nocturnally blood-feeding ectoparasite on domestic and wild birds. During the summer when synanthropic birds, for example, house sparrows, starlings or doves, have their nests inside or on the outside of human habitations, the mites will feed on the nestlings and their avian parents. When the birds leave the house the mites will try to find substitute hosts, which often happen to be people inhabiting the house. The bites can be painful and irritating. The length of the mite is about 0.7mm (unfed) to 1mm (fed). The recently fed mite is bright red in colour. Poultry houses can be infested by thousands of D. gallinae which may lead to serious blood-loss, reduced egg laying, and even death of the birds (Varma 1993). Infestations in schools and other buildings (often at the end of the summer) usually originates from birds' nests under eaves or in attics. The problem can usually be solved by removal of the nests,...
Accounts of Queensland tigers being killed were frequent in the early twentieth century, though no pelts or skeletons were retained J. MacGeehan's dogs killed one at Kairi in 1900 J. R. Cunningham and his dog killed another at Gootchie sometime before 1926 a cat the size of a sheepdog was killed after it raided a henhouse at the head of the Mulgrave River around 1929 and A. W. Blackman and others shot one in the Cardwell Range in 1932.
