• Genetic Diversity of MHC Gene and Molecular Phylogeny in Wanbei Cattle

    [Objective] To investigate the genetic diversity, molecular phylogeny and origination in Wanbei cattle. [Method] Blood samples were collected from 50 Wanbei cattle and 14 local cattle breeds. According to the bovine MHC gene sequence, one pair of primers was designed and used for PCR amplification. The sequences of amplified MHC genes were aligned to detect MHC haplotypes and nucleotide polymorphisms. A phylogenetic tree based on the MHC gene was also constructed. [Result] A total of 24 polymorphic loci covering 7.86% of the entire length of the sequences and seven MHC haplotypes were detected. Among these polymorphic loci, there were 18 transitions, 1 tranversions and 5 transition / tranversion. The difference in nucleotide sequence was 0.26%-4.53% between the haplotypes. The nucleotide diversity (π value) and haplotype diversity (H) were 0.012-0.019 and 0.602-0.617, respectively. [Conclusion] Wanbei cattle do not have rich MHC genetic diversity. They have closer genetic relationship with Luxi cattle, and both are within the same sister group.

    [Objective] To study the effects of Dangguibuxue decoction on immune organ and erythrocyte immune in broilers. [Method] One hundred 1-day-old healthy Sanhuang chickens were randomly divided into five groups, 20 in each group. They were immunized with Newcastle disease vaccine via intranasal inoculation at 7 days old. The chickens in group I, II and III drank water added the Danggguibuxue decoction at proportion of 2%, 5% and 10% (V/V), respectively. The chickens in the group IV drank water added Astragalus polysaccharide at proportion of 2% (V/V). And those in the group V drank water without addition of any drug. Blood was collected via jugular vein at 14, 21 and 28 days old, respectively, and then they were dissected. The immune organ indexes, erythrocyte C3b receptor rosette rate (E-C3bRR) and erythrocyte immune complex rosette rate (E-ICRR) were measured. [Result] The Dangguibuxue decoction had no significant effect on thymus index but significantly increased spleen index and bursa of Fabricius index. The best peripheral and humoral immunity was observed in the broilers drinking water added the Dangguibuxue decoction at proportion of 10% (V/V), and its immune enhancement was better than that of Astragalus polysaccharide added at proportion of 2% (V/V). [Conclusion] Dangguibuxue decoction can promote maturation of immune organs and enhance erythrocyte immune functions; thus, it can be used as immunopotentiator.

  • Effection of Lead Poisoning and Newcastle Disease Vaccine on Development of Egg Yellow Feather Quail

    [Objective] To investigate the effects of Newcastle disease vaccination and lead exposure on growth and development of egg yellow feather quail. [Method] Ninety 14-day-old quails were assigned randomly to 10 groups (n = 9), and they fed and drunk at liberty. A 2×5 factorial design was used. The quail immunized with ND vaccine and those non-immunized were exposed to lead at a dosage of 0, 50, 500, 1 000 and 2 000 mg/L, respectively. [Result] The ND immunization reduced body weight significantly (P < 0.01) and increased liver index and serum levels of hyaluronic acid in quail within 1-2 weeks post inoculation. The quail exposed to 2 000 mg/L lead acetate had significantly lower body weight than the control (P < 0.01). From 7 weeks old, the same inhibitory effect was observed in the quail exposed to lead at different dosages (P < 0.01). In addition, the lead poisoning could cause decreased feed intake, depilation, gonadal dysgenesis, and increased serum levels of hyaluronic acid. [Conclusion] The inhibitory effect of ND vaccination on growth of quail occurs within 1-2 weeks post inoculation; thus, the effects of immune stress should not be worried in quail production. The lead poisoning has significant effects on body weight and feed intake of quail, and lead dosage and duration affect the inhibitory effects of lead. Gonadal dysgenesis is an important indicator of lead poisoning in quail. The serum levels of hyaluronic acid can be used to determine whether the quail have been immunized with ND vaccine or have contacted lead pollutants.

    [Objective]To represent characteristics of roosting-sites of blue-eared pheasant (Crossoptilon auritum) in breeding season and the factors affecting selection of roosting-sites. [Method]A total of 32 night roosting-sites of blue-eared pheasants and 45 control sites were selected from the Gahai-Zecha Nature Reserve in Gansu Province in breeding season. Fifteen habitat factors including landform, vegetation and distance were surveyed. Chi-square test and test of significance were conducted. And major environmental factors affecting selection of roosting-sites were determined by principal component analysis. [Result]As shown by the chi-square analysis, roosting-sites were characterized by sunny slope; steeper slope; higher arbor coverage, arbor height and trunk diameter; and lower shrub coverage, shrub height, grass coverage and grass height. The principal component analysis showed that shrub coverage, shrub height, distance to road, moss coverage and grass height were the key factors for the blue-eared pheasants to choose roosting-sites. [Conclusion]Blue-eared pheasants usually select coniferous forest on sunny and steeper slope which has many high shrubs as their night roosting-sites.

  • Tissue Culture and Plant Regeneration of Chicory

    [Objective] To establish a high-frequency regeneration system of chicory (Cichorium intybus L.) using leaf segments of aseptic seedlings. [Method] Calluses and adventitious buds of chicory were induced by inoculating explants on MS medium supplemented with 6-BA (6-benayl aminopurine) and NAA (naphthylacetic acid) at different final concentrations. [Result] When lower part of leaves derived from 20-day-old seedlings was used as explant and inoculated on MS medium containing 2.0 mg/L 6-BA, 0.5 mg/L NAA and 40 g/L sucrose, the frequency of adventitious bud formation was 90.0%. When the regenerated shoots were cultured in 1/2 MS medium containing 0.1 mg/L NAA, the frequency of root formation was 88.3%. All rooted plants transplanted in pots could survive and grew well without abnormal shape. [Conclusion] Better differentiation of adventitious buds can be achieved by inoculating the lower part of leaves derived from 20-day-old seedlings on MS medium containing 2.0 mg/L 6-BA, 0.5 mg/L NAA and 40 g/L sucrose. The 1/2 MS medium containing 0.1 mg/L NAA is most suitable for rooting.
