• Comparison of Muscle Fiber Growth from F1Generations of Large Yorkshire Pig andErhualian Pig by Reciprocal Cross

    [Objective] To compare the muscle fiber growth between F1 generations of large Yorkshire pig and Erhualian pig by reciprocal cross, and provide a theoretical basis for the integrated breeding of meat quality traits and growth performances by rational utilization of hybrid combination. [Method] The hybrid pigs of large Yorkshire pig and Erhualian pig were fed and managed in the same conditions. The reciprocal combinations were Erhualian pig ♀× Yorkshire pig ♂ and Yorkshire pig ♀× Erhualian pig ♂, respectively. At the age of 20, 70, 120 and 180 d, the longissimus dorsi muscle and thigh muscle were collected and made into frozen sections for hematoxylin and eosin (HE) staining, and then the muscle fiber area was determined. [Result] The muscle fiber was thickened gradually with increasing age; and the absolute growth curve of muscle fiber area was presented as "S" shape. The diameter, perimeter and area of longissimus dorsi muscle and thigh muscle fibers in the reciprocal combination of Yorkshire pig ♀× Erhualian pig ♂ were higher than those in the reciprocal combination of Erhualian pig ♀× Yorkshire pig ♂(P < 0.01). The thigh muscle grew faster than longissimus dorsi muscle at the age of 20-120 d; but at the age of 120-180 d, the growth rate of longissimus dorsi muscle was higher than that of thigh muscle; and at the age of 180 d, the muscle fiber area had no significant difference between the longissimus dorsi muscle and the thigh muscle. The muscle fiber area had extremely significant difference between the reciprocal combinations at the age of 20 d; but no significant difference was found at the age of 180 d. [Conclusion] The reciprocal combinations can affect the muscle fiber growth of hybrid pigs of Yorkshire pig and Erhualian pig, but the affect degree reduces with the increasing age.

  • Optimal Supplement Dosage of Double-Low Rapeseed Meal in Concentrated Feed of Fattening Lambs

    [Objective] To determine the optimal supplement dosage of double-low rapeseed meal in concentrated feed of fattening lambs. [Method] A total of 120 Tibetan lambs at the age of 50 d were selected and divided randomly into four groups. The lambs in these four groups were fed with diets respectively supplemented the double-low rapeseed meal of 50, 100, 150 and 200 g/kg. Their diets had the same nutritional levels of energy and protein. The experimental period was 120 d. [Result] Daily gain, feed conservation ratio and economic benefits were largely increased in the lambs fed with the diets supplemented the double-low rapeseed meal of 150 g/kg (Daily gain, P < 0.01). However, the daily gain and feed conservation ratio were largely decreased in the lambs fed with the diets supplemented the double-low rapeseed meal of 200 g/kg. Moreover, serum levels of transaminase and thyroxine were not significantly different between the four groups. [Conclusion] The optimal supplement dosage of the double-low rapeseed meal is 150 g/kg in fattening lambs.

  • Cloning and Expression of Ovarian-Specific Promoter in Rats

    [Objective] To clone ovarian-specific promoter-1 (OSP-1) fragment in rats and detect the tissue-specific expression of OSP-1 at cell level. [Method] According to the known OSP-1 sequence in rats, the specific primers were designed. The OSP-1 fragment was amplified by PCR and compared with published OSP-1 sequence. After eukaryotic expression vector pOSP-1-EGFP-N1 was constructed by cloning OSP-1 promoter into the pEGFP-N1 vector without CMV, the recombinant plasmid was transfected into buffalo granulocytes, mammary epithelial cells and fetal fibroblast cells under mediation of liposome LipofectamineTM 2000. The green fluxorescent protein (GFP) expression was observed with the fluorescence microscope after transfection for 12, 24 and 48 h. [Result] The amplified OSP-1 fragment was 480 bp, and the homology to published rat OSP-1 sequence was 96%. The sequence analysis showed that this fragment contained a core promoter cis-element similar with TATA box and CAAT box, and multiple C/EBP beta transcription factor binding sites. The EGFP-expressing positive granulocytes were firstly observed at 12 h after transfection and they were increased. All the EGFP-expressing and non-expressing cells from granulocytes were large and round. After transfection for 48 h, the EGFP-expressing positive granulocytes were decreased. The EGFP was not expressed in buffalo mammary epithelial cell and fetal fibroblast cell. [Conclusion] EGFP expression controlled by OSP-1 promoter can be found in buffao granulocytes.

  • Development of Real-Time Fluorescent PCR for Rapid Detection of Haempohlius parasuis

    [Objective] To develop a real-time fluorescent PCR assay for rapid detection of Haempohlius parasuis (HPS). [Method] According to the conservative sequences of 16 S rRNA genes of HPS published in GenBank, a pair of specific primers was designed. The real-time fluorescent PCR was developed by optimizing primer concentration and annealing temperature. And its specificity and reproducibility were evaluated. Ten HPS-suspected samples were detected by the developed method. [Result] The lowest detection limit of the developed real-time fluorescent PCR was 50 copies/μl. This method had good reproducibility, and its coefficient of variation was lower than 2%. Only HPS rather than Streptococcus suis type 2, Staphylococcus aureus, E. coli DH5 alpha, and swine Salmonella typhi could be detected by the developed real-time fluorescent PCR. The HPS-positive samples detected by this method were also positive when they were detected by isolation of bacteria or conventional PCR. [Conclusion] The developed real-time fluorescent PCR is rapid, sensitive, specific and highly reproducible; thus, it can be used for rapid detection of HPS.

  • Preparation and Identification of Monoclonal Antibodies against Chicken Immunoglobulin G

    [Objective] To prepare monoclonal antibodies against chicken immunoglobulin G (IgG) and improve the diagnostic level of specific antibodies in chickens. [Method] Chicken IgG was isolated by saturated ammonium sulfate and purified by Sephadex G-200 column chromatography. Then the BALB/c mice were immunized by the chicken IgG, and the spleen cells were fused with mouse myeloma cells SP2/0. Finally, the positive hybridoma cells were screened and detected by indirect enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA). [Result] Four hybridoma cell strains secreting monoclonal antibodies against chicken IgG were obtained and named as C44, C45, C67 and C68, and their ascites titers in indirect ELISA were 1∶640 000, 1∶320 000, 1∶640 000 and 1∶80 000, respectively. The monoclonal antibodies secreted by C44 and C45 could recognize light chains of chicken IgG and those secreted by C67 and C68 could recognize heavy chains of chicken IgG. They all could not recognize IgG from duck, rabbit and swine. Additionally, the Ig type identification results showed that they all belonged to IgG1. [Conclusion] Four cell strains of obtained hybridoma can stably produce the monoclonal antibodies against chicken IgG.

  • Therapeutic Efficacy of Chinese Herbal Compound Preparation on Viral Diseases in Poultry

    [Objective] To develop a new antiviral agent with high and long efficacy, wide spectrum, low toxicity and low cost from traditional Chinese herbal medicine and their compound. [Method] The "Quxie" (i.e. eliminating pathogenic factors) drugs including Hedyotis diffusa and Lonicera japonica and "Fuzheng" (i.e. strengthening body resistance) drugs including Radix astragali and Glycyrrhiza uralensis were taken to form an antiviral herbal compound preparation. Taking the astragalus polysaccharide monomer as control, the experiment was constructed by using the agent to treat some naturally occurring viral diseases, including Newcastle disease (ND), infectious bursal disease (IBD), duck viral hepatitis (DVH), avian influenza (AI) H9 subtype and avian swollen head syndrome. [Result] The effective rates of the agent for treatment of the above-mentioned diseases were 87%, 87%, 69%, 100% and 100%, respectively, which were higher than that of astragalus polysaccharide monomer. The cure rates for these diseases were 33%, 37%, 13%, 69% and 75%, respectively, which were significantly higher than that of astragalus polysaccharide monomer (P < 0.01). The rates of poor therapeutic efficacy were 15%, 21%, 24%, 6% and 7%, respectively, which were significantly lower than that of astragalus polysaccharide monomer (P < 0.01). [Conclusion] The Chinese herbal compound preparation shows good therapeutic effects on some avian viral diseases, which can decrease mortality rate and improve production performance of poultry more greatly than astragalus polysaccharide monomer.
